Anyone else have any thoughts on the seller?

I agree with TeenaS I've just came back from WDW and there are so many scrappers that I have decided to collect the pins that I am missing (scrappers or not) I have decided that the fun is in the hunt if I can be a more savvy trader and avoid some bad pins by being aware of what they look like then so be it. I don't pay a fortune for my traders and only buy from ebayers that I feel are honestly trying to sell good pins. Anyway take that for what it is worth and have a great time!

Don't let it get in the way of the fun. While it's important not to pollute the lanyards with fake pins (which prevents other traders from getting legit pins) it will ruin your fun if you worry about it. Next time, just make sure you are buying real pins.

I trust that they are all real, but there was a debate about whether or not the same person bid up all of his pins so that he could get a higher price.

Has anyone had any dealings with "Majestic78." I did a thread search on this site and nothing came up so hopefully this hasn't already been asked and answered. The seller has a lot of hidden Mickey pins that are sold for around .99 each. However, I don't see any pin lots, which might be a good sign. He also doesn't have an overwhelming amount of current auctions. I'm not sure if he's legit or not. Thanks!

I've never had experience with him before... not sure if he is legit or not.

I just ordered a bunch of pins from a bunch of sellers. I ordered the majority from sleepys_emporium (they have really cheap grab bags!) with eBay bucks and Bing Cashback rewards, and I know that they will be authentic. Then, I had fun ordering 10 pins from 8 different sellers that have the cheapest individual pins just to test out the sellers. I will report on each one as soon as I get the pin.

Here are the 8 sellers:
mousepins4u
realfastpins
travelinwynns
zoom_time
ezpinner
jeffreyyoung
sunshinesunwear
gold747

I can probably say that ezpinner and travelinwynns are the same seller because I received the exact same email from them both, except that the name at the end was changed.

Oh, I totally forgot about that until you said it. As far as I can tell, there was no issue with shill bidding. Yes, I had one or two others bidding against me at the same time, but they had decent feedback and looked like they were like me, trying to get great deals on these pins.

Alright, I must have misunderstood the posts.
