I don't know of any signs for the unauthorized booster sets. I know certain sellers seem to sell legit packs. Some of these sellers are kittykat2bad, bizzybee1 and themuchnessofdisney.

I need to stop buying individual pins on ebay, or I won't have any left on my wish list when I get to the parks!
I know this seller has been confirmed to sell authentic pins but I am starting to feel a bit uneasy about my purchase.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/130567507153

The seller has sold two other sets of these pins. Do you think they are scrappers?

I emailed asking where she obtained the pins, she said:

"Wholesales from one of the eBay seller from the US.

- joynpeace"

Now I really do think they are scrappers!

I don't blame you for being concerned. This is not a set that was sold together, it's a set of Hidden Mickey pins, which are very commonly counterfeited. She also ships from Hong Kong? That's a major red flag.

Kather99 seems to be a positive seller. The pins sold seem to be rack pins or specialized, thus the higher prices.

I agree, they could very well be scrappers. I've seen lots of these that are scrapped.

I've just bought a bunch from themeparkconnection - they all seem legit to me.

They almost seem to have a pipeline into CM Estate sales - they've got a bunch of older CM-only merchandise, some of which looks pretty cool.

He is an excellent seller...
all of his items are legit...
and, if you get lucky as he starts most of his auctions out at around a buck...
he is normally a good deal.

There is some negative feedback for tennpins. I've purchased from this seller, back in February, with no problems. I was guarded.

Headed to Disneyworld next week and forgot about pins (oops) until yesterday. I am trying to research this thread and look on ebay while I work, but can anyone recommend a reliable Seller or Sellers that I can get pins from, I will need at least 50. Reading this thread I feel bad because I know we have more than likely bought scrappers before (when I wasn't informed) but I don't want to do that again. Thanks!

Are the booster sets smaller pins?
