so as a newbie to pin trading i hae been reading some of this thread to find out about buying pins to take with me on ebay...

some sellers sell scrappers for less than $1 per pin but some of your legit sellers are selling their pins for $0.01 too and with combined shipping they could be as low as $0.51 each for pins marked with the official trading pin logo and on card backs....so how are the legit sellers getting pins so cheap when they are at least $7 in the parks?

Just curious, but is because of Nannub specifically or people like him/her? I ask since I ran into a couple of "Sharks" at the Epcot tables in December, but even as a newbie, I still knew enough thanks to this forum, plus I have been doing Transformers for 12+ years, both selling and buying, so I know how some overzealous people act; but I am assuming those tables are still there so what is the difference if the "Shark" preys at DTD, Epcot, or anywhere else on property?

I really dont care what you think about me but I atleast think the truth should come out. Nannub hasnt even traded pins since october. I know this because i have talked to her and she is getting out of her collection.... You need to relax because each and everyone of you knows that they buy cheap [pins. I do! I know that nannub supports over 50 sellers on ebay and the funny part is 13 of the green listed are her customers.
They know exactly what they are doing is wrong. It is illegal and copyright enfringement. So why you strongly defend somone who may be doing it - who knows?
Besides how can you argue with someone who has bought their product???
I don't blame a person for wanting to buy cheaper pins to trade in the parks 6 - 7 bucks a pop is high but for me I will not knowingly buy pins that I know are knockoffs to have them traded to some unknowing person especially a kid, so if your conscience doesn't bother you then that's for you to decide.

Personally I have not bought from that seller. They are not on the good or bad list. I do know that they list a lot of pin lots which makes them suspicious in my opinion. However, I do not want to make a snap judgment I would just use extreme caution checking here is a good decision.

Well, I bought a lot of 20 pins for 15 bucks, she has 100% positive feedback, she does free shipping, she answered my shipping question within about 3 minutes, and she shipped my order about 20 minutes after I paid...so, so far, so good. I will let you all know when the pins come how they are. If they're bad, at least it was just 15 bucks and then everyone here will know about it. I might need y'all's help though to find out if they are authentic - I've never even seen a pin in my life!

This might sound strange but when you open your package check to see if it smells oilly the scrappers we received did also check quality closely - do they look cheap - discolored, severly damaged, etc. Check on pinpics to see if the ones you receive are the ones listed as known scrappers. Also be leary if you receive low le pins such as LE 300, 500 (look on back of pin) that means for example that only 300 of such a pin were produced etc. Not trying to preach just help, please definitely post results the good list lot sellers are kind of slim. Good Luck!

You know that is good question. I would suspect that they legally buy in mass from one of the outlet malls or trade in mass at the parks? I personally would ask pixiewings71 she has good advice and is very knowledgible.

While not as knowledgeable as Pixie, are the legit sellers selling them for under a $1 or starting auctions at under a $1? I ask because there is a big difference in E-Bay fees if you do a fixed price listing for $1 ($.25) and an auction that starts under $1 (FREE).

Legit sellers may be doing those to avoid starting fees on E-Bay and let the chips fall where they may, figuring they already have the product, might as well get what they can for it, instead of just sitting on it.

I'm actually glad there's no more tables - the whole thing looked shady, and really not very Disney like. Seriously, the last time I was there I expected one of the 'dealers' to offer to play me three card monte.

HAPPYHAPPYJOYJOY6 is a former CM and still acquires pins from the employee store. I have bought many items from her and she is fantastic.

Not related to her and my only dealings have been on eBAY but I have been very happy

I have never used that seller, but when you get your pins check here or on pinpics.com, they will have scrappers notes if you do a search for your pins. If you need help just let us know, we will be happy to help.

Awwww thanks!!! I appreciate the kind words. What I've learned I've learned with research and the help of many people here, I'm not an expert by far but I do appreciate your comments.

yes, many sellers will start at 1 cent listings but rarely do the pins actually sell for that price. Many of them are purchased from outlets, on clearance or other types of liquidation sales. They may have found them at a yard sale being sold by someone who didn't care or didn't know what they had, there are so many possibilities that's it is impossible to say for sure where they are getting them.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the posts in this thread. I'm not as worried about my collection after finding this post. I think if enough traders can be educated that we can slow down scrappers. Keep up the good work and thank you for having the courage to stand up to the bad Ebay sellers. I have not been able to understand why other sites are so afraid of sellers committing a crime. I also don't understand why Disney doesn't shut them down. I was told at the last PTN at WDW that the official disney position is that counterfits don't exist. Keep up the good work.

I definitely agree with slowing down the scrappers and educating people. It's sad to hear about the position that Disney is taking about the scrappers. Maybe if we can get enough people to respond to them, they will have to eventually have to do something.
Keep spreading the word.

I'm a young pin trader posting on my mom's account, I wanted to say that the seller domimgood, should be in the bad list. I've bought some pins from him before and they smelled really bad, very oily. Then, i checked on pinpics and the coloring was off. That was my first scrapper experience and i wasn't happy about.Thanks for making this thread. BTW, my pinpics name is waltandroy71. I don't have a lot up just yet, but am working on it.
