I am watching a few from "domimgood" but now Im thinking.. no thanks.
I am now searching the "great" sellers to purchase from them!

Gosh some people are just crooks, sickening what people will do for a buck!

Thanks for the amazing posts!
It is sick. Unfortunately, there are people who don't care if they buy from scrappers to trade as long as they can trade the pin (the cheaper the better) in the park. In fact some buy the bad pins on purpose so that they can trade for good pins in the parks. Plus the scrappers make a ton of money from big lots so all one can really do is educate themselves and not trade "scrappers" in the parks. Anyhow don't let all this stuff ruin your fun have a great trip!

Has anyone ever purchased from Amazon? I did a search for starter sets with lanyard for my DD10 and me to start. They look packaged with Lanyard and 4 pins (various).

Thanks!!

I'm starting to think I may give up pin trading. It used to be fun but now it just seems like a lot of work. Having to check every pin against pinpics & worrying about putting scrappers into the system by trading with CMs at the parks. Maybe ignorance was bliss, but too late to go back now.
So I looked at more of his auctions and found some pins that I know have scrappers (because I have a ton of them lol) and I asked him about the backstamp, he told me "these pins are considered scrappers on pinpics" so yes he knows, and no he doesn't say anything about them being scrappers on the auction pages.

No, I didn't even know Amazon had pins on it.

Neither did I, but looking at them, it looks like Disney maintains a store front there as well as individual retailers

Wow. Shame on him!



Edit: So I just checked the 1st page & he's not listed in red. Shouldn't he be if he out & out told you he's selling scrappers & not being up front about it? Seems like a good reason to add him to the list to me.

So, do you think it is safe to think these are authentic. I have found some starter sets with lanyard for as low as 9.95. I'm thinking that would be a great way for us to start out.

If it is from the Disney Store located on Amazon, more than likely. They probably set it up to get further exposure as well as use it to help sell some slower products

yes, I'm sure they are ok since they are from Disney And I'm sure that Amazon would not look kindly on people selling scrappers on their site.

It's a WDI Space Mountain pin. The reason I'm pretty sure it's fake is becaue the stuff on the back is just typed in black. It's flat. Not stamped into it. I feel bad because it's a pin I bought online for my husband. He said he doesn't care though since he doesn't plan on trading it ever.

I thought I'd share pictures of it.

Here's the front -


And here's the back -



It looks silver without the flash. So here's one with the flash. You can't read the words as well here though.




(Sorry if this shouldn't have been posted in this thread. I'm not familiar with this section of the board. Let me know if I should take this elsewhere. I have a couple pins I'm not sure about but I don't know if I should post photos and ask here or somewhere else)
There are 66 people trading it on PinPics, so there could be a scrapper of this pin. That's just pure speculation with little fact.

I'll read through the thread later and respond/update. Disney was awesome as normal. I picked up a few scrappers, but it seems like the majority of the 2010 HM pins on the lanyards are real. All of the ones I traded for (over 30 HMs) were real.

Also, 64 pins wasn't enough for me for a week. I'll probably go with 100 and bring the rest home next time.

After reading through this thread, we purchased a large lot of pins from one of the "green list" sellers - Sleepy's Emporium. The price was a bit higher than other sellers, but the others were either on the "red list" or on no list, so I paid a few extra bucks to go with a trusted resource. The pins just arrived and I must say they are much nicer than I expected! I am no expert on scrappers, but they do appear to be authentic -- no duplicates and none in little plastic baggies. There are even a couple that are multi-dimensional or special event pins. I'm very pleased. Thanks to all for the education!
