wd_pins

Was wondering if anyone has purchased from wd_pins on ebay? My kids want to maybe start pin trading on our upcoming trip and I don't want to spend a lot of money without knowing if this is something they are going to enjoy. Thanks!

Just got back from Disney on Saturday and I think that after this trip we are done with trading pins. I cannot tell you how many fake pins we encountered. It was so frustrating! Something that I did find was that we went to Target and they had official pins for $3.99. I bought some there for the kids to trade so I didn't feel so bad when we lost out to a fake pin.

My kids have just recently gotten involved with pin collecting and trading, so I'm doing my best to learn about scrappers on Ebay.

I'm watching a pin that says it's backstamped with the Disney Official Pin Trading Logo, including the copywright symbol. If a pin has this on the back, is it official?

And thank you for all the valuable info on this thread!

I would be cautious when buying from wd_pins. The price per lot is under $1 a pin and the seller mentions duplicates. Duplicates is a red flag word when dealing with Disney trading pins.

The Disney pin trading logo does appear on unauthorized pins. So, that characteristic is of little help when deciphering legitimate pins.

Bummer, that's definitely discouraging. I was planning on bringing legitimate pins with me in January and trading here and there, but this is making me a bit nervous. Perhaps I'll only put on pins that I am 100% okay with giving away, regardless if what I get in return is a scrapper. I have quite a few rack pins that I was willing to trade out (I got an excellent deal through a legit seller on eBay of 10 pins on their original cards, along with some boosters), but now I might just keep them. We'll see what I run into when I go.

Grrr. That's no good! Is it safe to assume that pins that are attached to what looks to be their original Disney card are OK?

On card pins, might be better. Beware, there are sellers out there selling the black cards. I know kittykat2bad, bizzybee1, gitanoman, themuchnessofdisney, beekerlg and domdisney are good ebay sellers. Maybe some of these sellers will have something you are looking for.

The problem with the black cards is they can be from ANY pin.......that's happened to me before, purchased a pin on the card and then found out the card was for a different pin. I found out because I took the card and compared. I don't think the pin I got was a scrapper but it was on the wrong card.

I absolutely 100% agree with Disneyrunner, the sellers above are all great sellers.

Thank you! I'm not looking for any particular pin, just ones that my kids will be trading away. I've saved these sellers, so I can breathe easier when I'm looking for pins!

Quick question - Am I safe if I'm purchasing booster sets that are sealed off ebay or do I really need to consider the source on there as well? I just bought a few sets from thewill, but i got some pretty cheap and now I'm thinking maybe I should be concerned about sealed sets as well.

As far as thewill, he can sell legit items as well as some that are questionable. I looked at his listings and I see he has a muppet set up. That seems legit. I've read there are fake booster packs out there. I have not run into any, out of the booster packs I've purchased lately.

What would be the giveaway as to whether they are genuine or scrappers?

Has anyone recently (like last month or so) bought from steamboatwillie39? I see he's on the green list, but I don't know when the list was last updated.

Thank you!

I have bid on items from steamboatwillie39, but never won any. My impression, this seller is ok.
