Just ran across this auction.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=31719&item=4130545319&rd=1

Typical sob story about hubby in the hospital and no idea if the card is real or not. Claims she has never used eBay, yet she is savvy enough to note "no reserve" in the acution title. Now why would someone that has never sold eBay feel the need to mention this.

A lot of red flags on this one, and she has other items up too.

Jay

The 1950's Topps cards do look real if that is helpful in analysing whether he/she is legitimate. But I ain't bidding. I personally never bid when I see the ebay "sob stories." Flim-flam artists would probably be better off shutting-up and letting the cards speak for themselves, but they just can't resist telling the "story." Other red-flags also. Stay away.

the AG Clarkson is a fake, I am not a big 19th centruy man but I have owned a few of these cards and I think this is a reproduction and wouldn't touch any of those cards with a 10 foot pole.
To me the huge red flag is she specifically chose the 3 day auction instead of the standard 7 day auction and had to specifically click out of the 7 day. She also knows how to keep user ids private, not bad for an ebay newbie. 0 feedback to boot, if anyone here bids on any of these cards they deserve exactly what they are going to get: worthless paper.
