Default Question of authenticity of a seller's cards...

Posted By: JV 

This guy seems to have some amazing stuff, but I'm not convinced of the authenticity of the product.

Can anyone help?

Now, if this guy is for real, then I may be leading you folks to some nice stuff, but I figure it's the least I can do since you have all helped me greatly.

Thanks!

I believe his item:

"1940's vintage Lefton/Leftoris rooster and chicken 2pc."

is probably authentic.

they're all slabbed in PRO holders (and he very carefully does not mention the grading company in his auctions)- BIG RED FLAG.

PRO is notorious for grading 1) trimmed cards and 2) counterfeits. That doesn't mean everything in a PRO holder fits those categories but I'd be very leary of anyone offering that mean PRO cards at one time.

The trimmed Ruth and Hornsby don't look right at all. He claims they were trimmed by his grandpa, but they show zero wear on the corners.

I also like how he uses the comic/coin grading term Fine in the card descriptions when the slab uses VG/Ex

I like to sit outside, drink beer and yell at people. If I did this at home I would be arrested, so I go to baseball games and fit right in.

Thanks again, guys. I had those same red flags going off when I couldn't find the card grader. I'm also rather sceptical (perhaps I shouldn't be) when I'm presented with a large amount of pre-war cards that seem to sell far too low. As a general rule, I would think, these cards would be (if they are authentic) bringing a much higher price even if they are of low grade.

Here is the funniest one!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=31721&item=5111646507

An AAA graded Ty Cobb with a BIN of $200... but wait, according to the seller, it books for $250. I didn't know Beckett started pricing for AAA trimmed pictures? Oh wait, maybe this is listed in the new Standard Catalog?

everyone should bid on those PRO graded T205's because I've NEVER, repeat NEVER, seen anything in a PRO holder graded less than 7..................that is truly amazing!
