I just got my order from evaandmike - 2 of the Star Wars Muppest pins, on cardboard backers. They came quickly and in perfect shape. They're real based on my limited knowledge of scrappers. That's all I ordered though, so that's all I can speak to, but I am happy to have my lost pin replaced now

I can't believe you are surprised that they are fakes.

If you are concerned about getting fakes, avoid any seller with multiple large lots for sale every day where you are getting the pins for less than a dollar a piece. A seller with that many pins selling them for $.75 to $1.00 a piece has to be selling fakes. They'd be out of business in no time if they weren't selling fakes

Help

I am trying to get some disney pins for my girls to trade next time we go to disney. I don't want to have to be buying 1 pin each time from ebay and paying shipping for each pin as that will add up.

are there any LEGIT sellers that sell pins in lots? I know some say that they aren't trading anymore etc. even if I pay $2 per pin it is fine but don't want to buy them in singles paying $2 each plus shipping each pin. would rather just get a few lots and be done. doesn't matter if they are from a set or not but would rather a mix than just a set.....

Not generally no, most of the sellers I buy from are selling singles but they do combine shipping.

I buy booster sets, new in package on eBay. IMHO, that's the best deal and the best way to know they're not garbage. Hope that helps.

If any one gets a few minutes could you help get a bad ebay seller OFF ebay, it will only take a minute of your time. disneytradingpins4u actually says in their auctions they are selling scrappers. auction #270936434489 hopefully if more people report it to ebay we can get these kinds of selllers gone!

Well at least they are "honest" about it..... I copied this from one of their auctions.....

I believe in honesty and full disclosure:
These pins are perfect if you want a cheap way to trade with cast members at the parks. As you can see for yourself in the pictures, they are scrapper quality so they probably aren't ones that you want to keep for yourself but Disney policy requires cast members to accept them in trade.
These are the exact same type and quality of pin that anyone selling a "random lot of pins" that are "authentic" but do not specifically say "not scrapper" in their auction.
These are what I use to trade all the time so I know for 100% certain that there is no way they will deny a trade but I think it is important to be completely clear to avoid problems down the road.

No, but I did look at their auctions. They do look legit but without seeing the pins firsthand I can't be sure. It's a good sign that they seem to sell other items in addition to pins.

I don't have a problem with what this seller is doing. He is selling a product with honesty and no deception. If you don't want scrappers, then don't buy from him. Don't get him kicked off ebay for being honest when others that lie are going to keep selling.

Besides we all know scrappers get traded and the only problem people have with that is it reduces the value of "real" pins. Don't want scrappers then don't trade, buy all of your pins at the park or at disneystore.com. I trade for the fun of trading, not to make a profit or find a rare pin. I see a pin I like, I trade for it. I see a pin my son or daughter wants, I trade for it. I don't give my 2 and 5 year old a lecture on the quality of a pin that they want.

I had a similar experience with disney.crazy. I ordered 25 pins and 13 of those were scrappers.
