Vala I didn't look last night. I've got DeGuervais (sp, I'm sure that's wrong lol) tendonitis and had a hard day yesterday, by 7 pm my whole right arm was aching so bad I just sat on my couch and put heat on it. I'll try to remember to look again this weekend.....

Oh dear, please take it slow by all means. I sometimes get tendonitis too, and this is not fun. Feel better soon, and rest the arm as much as you can. A pin number is not that important that you have to be in pain because of it!

It's not so bad right now. I wore my brace all day and that helped quite a bit.
So here's a link to one that we have, in this photo the clouds don't have glitter, but ours does have glitter, so that made me wonder if it was real or not.

We also have the Kaa, Tink, Jack, Stitch and Ariel. I don't know if that's the whole set or not but those are the ones we have. The Kaa does have a lot of divets so I wondered about that as well, otherwise they look good.

Any tips for successful selling? I've got several of the Visa cardholder exclusive pins and haven't had much luck listing them. I buy direct from DisneyPins and because I have the Disney Visa card, I can get a discount if I buy 5, so I always do figuring I can either trade or sell on ebay. But lately, no luck selling them.

Is there a certain way I should be listing them?

As for trading, we won't be heading to Disney anytime soon, is there another way to trade that is safe and recommended?

TIA

I was really hoping that it was this series because this is one of the few jumbos I actually have a clue about.

Those pins are all supposed to have glitter. The hints in the Black Pearl description are "extra sparkle" and "Enamel cloisonné with glittering accents". The picture showing is the production art and no one bothered to update the listing once the pins were sent out.

I do have that pin too, directly from DS.com, and the clouds definitely do have glitter on them. My Kaa does have divets too, seems this was a wanted effect. You have the whole series by the way.

If there's no other signs of a scrapper, your pins should be A okay.

The reason you have got them quite cheap very likely was that they were ridiculously discounted for a while, some even ended up in the Outlet.

I have just spent quite some time reading almost all of this thread. We returned from WDW last week. While there we spent much more than I wish to think about on pins for our 3 children to trade pins. But it was worth it as they had a blast.

After reading this thread I feel overwhelmed. As annual passholders at Disneyland we go quite frequently. I was looking at purchasing some pins on ebay for our children to trade as we just cannot afford buying them all at the park. But it almost sounds like you have to if you want to ensure you are trading good pins
.
I don't want my children trading "bad" pins, but I also cannot pay $5 plus per pin just so they can trade. This question is to all who post here, if you were to purchase about 40 pins for trading who is the one eBay seller you would recommend? Thanks for your help.

Hi Disneyrunner, If you are looking for any Dee Bees I have quiet a few, I was at WDW Sept/Oct when they were released.
I've not heard they have been scrapped either btw.

I'm looking to sell them if your interested.

You're very welcome. I'm glad I could be the bearer of good news for once.

That series is really nice, I quite like the style too. I never understood why they were so unpopular that they ended up in the outlet. My guess was because this was one of the first series where DS.com did raise the price.

I just wanted to let you all know that I bought a lot of 100 pins from seller thewill off of ebay, and all pins were authentic. They all came on original backings. I compared them to pinpics and also checked the upc codes and all was good. I paid around 2.45 per pin. Yes, more expensive, but cheaper than in the parks!

I'm in a pickle

I bid and won several pins on EBay from disneypinpros. I am still bidding on several more so haven't paid yet. I was waiting until I was done since the seller offers combined shipping.

Then I read about scrappers I'm pretty sure that what I am buying are scrappers I don't want to purchase scrappers!

I just sent the seller asking about authenticity. Should I contact EBay? What have other people done?

Thanks!

another vote for thewill

after the post about thewill, I sent him a message about purchasing a lot of pins and he responded quickly. He just sent me an invoice and I couldn't be happier. Thanks for posting his information. Can't wait to get the pins for my DD - now I just have to hide them until our trip.

I don't think you'll be disappointed. There were so many pins we liked and wanted to keep in our lot. lol
