Thank you for the info about the scrapper pins. I am using this link to try to find real pins for a better price, and I have been watching auctions from several GREEN sellers, but couldn't find those others listed in the RED. I will avoid them.

After you study ebay enough, a lot of buyers and sellers show up on each others feedback lists. A lot of inbreeding going on.

Got bit recently by dopeyspin. Thankfully was able to return them for a full refund. Now I am looking for legitimate pin sellers. I have bought from gyantzpod in the past (many years ago) and he still looks legit. How about bizzybee1? I am not seeing any red flags there.

Thanks!

I have bought from them, but it's been quite a few years. When you buy from MPO you don't get just standard Disney pins, you also get Pro Pins, which are 100% tradeable but not the same as standard Disney pins....I think that's why they can sell for less. That said, it's been at least 3 years since I bought from them so keep that in mind, things may have changed where they are concerned.....

I've used gyantzpod in the past but again, not recently. I haven't been buying pins, no trips planned....and now that we have a trip planned it's too close for me to think about buying from eBay, but that's OK because we cleaned the heck out of DD11's room and found bags and bags of untraded pins! LOL So really...we are good to go. lol

Wow. This is overwhelming.

I didn't see ebay seller toomanypostcards4me on the first page, so wondering if anybody knows anything. MOstly curious - I've never ordered anything from ebay, but I would like to get a couple of starter sets for my kids.


Oh, also cosmogheetuffy

Your second seller has some fakes for sale but some of their pins are also real. I love this part of their description: "Pins are in good used condition and have been acquired either through trade at the various Orlando theme parks or through purchases from fellow eBay sellers. I do not purchase pins from China." Just because they're not purchased from China, doesn't mean they're not fake!!!

Hopefully someone else can chime in on your first seller. The pics are kind of blurry, but I don't see anything in there that stands out as obviously fake to me.

I agree with the PP. I've just come across como..., as well. Some of the pins in the listings are known to be scrapped. As for post....me, none of those pins are known scrappers to me. Don't forget to check a sellers feedback as a buyer. If you see they have purchased pins from a red listed seller, I stay away. I also refer to this link, http://www.dizpins.com/pinventory/scrappers.htm
and pinpics.com.

regarding cosmoheetuffy...
I would NOT buy from her..
sells fakes and has an attitude with buyers also...
as for the toomany postcards or whatever..
YES,I would buy..
she does not seem to be a regular seller..
just someone cleaning out their collection.
she is getting nothing for her pins..including all the ones she already sold.
yes,she has a few fakes in there..
but, the majority are real...
but, at those prices?
I would definitely buy...
in fact..i may...lol

Thanks for the replies.

Does anyone wish to comment on these? I'm not sure if this is what I should be getting for starter sets for my kids.... but the price is tempting.

I think I would feel fine ordering from this seller....the sets they have all seem to be legit and aren't super cheap.

I really want to buy 20-30 pins for my kids to use for trading. I want to hide them in their Easter eggs. I am not good at Ebay and I've looked at the green and red list. If I buy from a green seller I am probably getting good ones right? My kids just want the trading experience not the collecting value of them. Any helpful tips for a newbie???

I would not..
her prices are ridiculously cheap...
less than half of actual cost..including shipping.
Funny..but,,she seems to have a bunch of the same sets that I thought the other seller[the gift card one] had up too cheaply...
but..hers are even cheaper/
i am going to start looking..to see...
if there is a scrapper seller out there with those tiny pin starter sets in packages.
this is the 2nd seller..with mostly the same items...
that is selling them way under cost...
under cast member cost also.
I wonder if this one will say..she did it with gift cards also.
