Jeff, here's the problem. When you find something that's hard to find to complete a project, you can (if you're not careful) want it to be real so badly that you'll find all kinds of excuses why the signer was "slightly off" that day. You always need to be dispassionate in these situations and look at the autograph critically. As has been said here multiple times, the Vance is garbage. I would try to get a refund, and if you can't, then chalk it up to a lesson learned. A real one may become available some day, so be ready with the funds and the research to allow you to confidently pull the trigger.

When you buy on ebay look at the sellers other items and if any look bad stay away from all to play it safe. Like the Greenberg ball and Kluszweski ball are awful that he has.

If it appears to good to be true, it probably is. I had a feeling I got out ahead of my skis on that one. I went ahead and submitted for a quick opinion on the two autos anyways since I figure it will be easier to request a refund/return with an official opinion.

I stayed pretty disciplined on 1963 Fleer, but that was easier since the subjects were contemporary players at the time. But 1960 and 1961 featured retired players, many for quite a long time. The risk is, obviously, higher and I should have stuck to my plan. Lesson learned.

Looks like you posted this as I was typing. You are absolutely right. I'll pursue a refund, though the listings are written such that he is maintaining plausible deniability and will likely fight it. I guess I can always drop negative feedback, though in 17 years on Ebay I've never done that.

Should not be hard to get a refund, even without the quick opinion. eBay will side with you the buyer 100%, you are well within the refund window.

Maybe I am in the minority here, but when you buy something that is specifically advertised as "no COA" and "sold as is" do you think it really is fair to try to return it? I mean, you knew what you were getting yourself into, right? He didn't sell it as "go on and have it authenticated at your cost, and if it comes back fake I will refund your money."

I mean, if more people try to return this stuff and open PayPal claims, etc., then maybe you discourage the bad guys from listing fake crap. But, I would not feel comfortable forcing a refund here if the guy won't give you one after you politely ask.

I would agree if this were a one-off from the seller. This particular seller, however, is only interested in selling garbage. My empathy would go out the window in cases such as this.

Of course, I wouldn't have gotten myself into such a situation in the first place, but that is beside the point.

Well, that is why I asked. I've been on EBay since 2000 and never been in this situation. I am ready to take the loss even though this was nearly a full month of my hobby budget. Even if I end up eating my mistake, there is a follow on question regarding feedback. Does it follow the same logic, so no negative? Maybe neutral with text saying my purchases failed authentication? I am really curious how to proceed.

FWIW, I just got the quick opinion on the Lombardi. It is also "Likely Not Geniune."
