Default Creative lure to get bids for a fake

Posted By: Todd

when I first saw this auction, it was just another headscratcher. Several hundred for another fake and doctored Ruth rookie, although he claims it's a reprint. Then I see where he is offering incentives as the bidding gets larger. Anybody else see this type of auction before?

For my tastes, there's nothing more annoying than eBayers using HUGE (and ususally multi color) font like that. It gives the sense you've entered the big top, 'where a sucker is born every minute' as one big top owner said.

When the bonus is (supposedly) worth many times more than the for sale item, that's a new one. I've seen legitimate eBay auctions that have included little extras for certain bidding ('If you BIN, I will include a free ARod card.')

Well he does take paypal and if I won an auction like that i'd sure as heck pay with a CC. I also just love these ebayers that use God in their names or in the descrips. too. Plus he is a POWERSELLER <eyeroll>

Dunno if it is real or not.

I don't know what upsets me more, the pure antagonism to bid on this lot or that his ebay name is "soldierofchrist1"

Why can't he name who the HOFer PSA 3 is? Is this like one of the Shop at Home deals? Additionally, if he feels this card is Ruths BEST card, why wouldn't he have it graded. He obviously knows what PSA is.

Seller states "When I removed this card from the holder to scan it, the smell strongly resembled the smell of tobacco."

Yeah I smell somethin too and it ain`t TOBACCO!

Just means the cards came from the home a of heavy smoker. I'm pretty sure heavy smoking and drinking are hallmarks of scammers.
