I beg to differ. I ordered a 20-pin lot from them and I'd say about half are scrappers. (Well, I'm not too confident in my abilities to tell, but I'd say of the 8 where I can tell for sure, 4 are scrappers and 4 are real.)

I am so pleased with the idea people here introduced me to of buying from the people selling booster packs! I'm happy to pay $2 per pin knowing for certain that they are authentic.

Headed to DL on Monday!

disney pins- real or fake??

Does anyone know if "realcoolstuff" is selling "real" pins or scrappers?

I just bought a lot in an auction. I don't have them yet, but started reading about "scrappers" tonight and now I am worried. I never knew about therse before. I just wanted to get some pins for my little ones to trade in Disney on our trip this summer.

I ordered from Mousepinsonline even though they are listed as a "yellow" seller. Definitely scrappers in my lot. The colors were off in several pins and one Donald Duck pin even had his bottom lip missing. I keep looking for a sale on trader packs from the Disney online store. Before our last WDW visit I found them on sale there and we used them for trading. Definitely move mousepinsonline to a "red" seller.

koolstuff2005 is selling more bad pins and is listed in the orange. I just bought 10 off of him. Only 2 were real. I wouldn't recomend buying any vinylmation or hidden mickey pins from this seller.

Pin prices

My family and I are going to Disney in November. I began collecting pins on Ebay to trade at Disney. I have noticed that the prices of the pins have gone up as the summer has arrived.
I was paying $1.25-$1.50 per pin, now Iím looking at $2.00-$3.50 per pin. I wonder if the price will drop as summer ends?

It could be because recently ebay raised their fees for sellers. Ebay now charges a fee based not only on the price of the item, but for the total price to include the shipping fee. Also ebay use to give sellers 100 free listings each month if the sale starts at .99, now they give sellers 50 free listings a month (any start price). Sellers who have "stores" have different rules, I'm talking about the average seller (like myself). In the past if I listed for .99, and it sold for that price the ebay fee was .09 (plus paypal fee -- which has always been on the total to include shipping). But now if I sell something for .99 and it cost $5.00 to ship, ebay gets .54, once you add in the paypal fee too, the profit is just pennies now. Many sellers stopped selling overseas because of the higher shipping taking more profit away from the seller. Some sellers are adding on that extra fee in their "handling" or increasing their item prices. I stay away from the hidden mickey pins myself. I was in WDW in May and the scrappers are so good, even I can't tell them apart in most cases. When I sell pins, I'll stick to my older lanyard pins or my gazillion pins I collected from 1999-2005. Just wanted to give a different point of view.

I am wondering about this seller as well. They are definitely selling lots, which has me concerned.

I bought 2 pins (a day apart) and received the first one (the green hidden mickey lanyard pin) today from disneypinpros and it looks just fine. Has the rubber mickey head for the back, the writing on the back, etc. No problems with it. Very satisfied. We should be receiving the 2nd one tomorrow or Monday. I would definetely buy from them again.
