I can throw my two cents in. Just bought a pin from ebay user dyllan. I'm not sure if he's a regular pin seller, but he sold me the Hanes promotional one from 2008 - white t-shirt with a raised mickey on the front. Got a good price for it, and it definitely seems authentic.

Haven't tried any other sellers yet - and I'm glad I didn't... I nearly bought from someone who, according to this list, sells scrappers.

I just received a "20 pin lot" from Evaandmike. I'm not an expert, but after researching for a couple of hours on pinpics, I think I only have about 3 legitimate pins. Almost all of them that I received had a disclaimer on pinpics about unauthorized selling directly from China. I may be just pessimistic, but that made me believe mine might be scrappers. My biggest concern is the edges of the pins. They don't look like they were cut properly. They are very rough & have bumps, etc...on the edges.

I really didn't want to purchase any "lot", but my kids really like the surprise of not knowing what pins you might get, so I selected someone that lived in FL, had 100% feedback, & only bought a small lot of pins.

I'm just not sure if I will trade them when we go in August...I can't guarantee they are scrappers, but don't want to continue to bring them into the parks if they are. I will now purchase the booster packs (which is what I wanted to do from the beginning) but I had to listen to my DD!

Sorry for being so long winded....just wanted to let you guys know my experience with this seller.

Can someone point me in the direction of a couple of sellers that sell a lot of pins for trading for a good price? I'm looking at probably 20 or so pins I need for my DD, and I really don't care what ones they are (not scrappers obviously).

The guy I purchase mine from when I need them (sells very sporadically on ebay) finally has some listed again in lots of five ... he does give a discount on shipping if you purchase more than one lot. Just do a seller search for MUBUNNY

Good luck!

Is it possible for this pin to be a scrapper?
http://www.pinpics.com/cgi-bin/pin.c....1310049783.v2

I got this pin recently from a seller and there is a noticable dip in the paint under the belt and seller is trying to convince me that it's not a scrapper that disney has started releasing poor quality pins with marks on paint and dips in paint. I think it's just a scrapper!

I bought pins from these guys too and I had the same experience. So they are definitely off the list of trusted sellers!

Just an update to my transaction with Evaandmike: I contacted them & was told to return the pins for a full refund. She said that she purchases in lots off Ebay, just like we do. All the pins were in little plastic bags & I got the feeling she had no idea that there were scrappers included. Mailed them back today & now I'll order booster packs for trading.

I don't know if yours is a scrapper or not, but I can say with 100% honesty that yes, we purchased pins directly from DLR, they were LE's and they did have dips in the paint!

If this seller is buying lots on eBay and reselling I would stay FAR away......they are buying scrappers and reselling them.

This is why I always check feedback as a buyer, too.

That's a great idea....thanks for the suggestion. I'm just going to stay away from "lots" in the future.

I've been buying from Gitanoman for a few years and she will sell lots. I've never had a scrapper. Just email her.

I also have bought from MUBUNNY, but I haven't seen him sell much this year.

HTH!

seller question

I noticed that Thepinconnection is in red, but under the green list. When I clicked on the link with the report on them it is a good report, so I just wanted to double check because I wanted to buy from them.

I try to, unless it's a seller I've used previously and had good results with.

I buy from Gitanoman as well, both lots and singles. I've always received good pins from her, she is one of few that I will buy larger lots from, otherwise I stick to smaller lots of 25 or less or buy singles.

I have never used them so cannot say for sure, but if the report is good I would take the chance on a small number of pins. Good luck!! Please come back and give us your feedback!

I bought 21 pins from monkabuda on Ebay and 10 of them were scrappers. I was able to see what pins I was getting so I thought I was ok. She said that her pins were from trading in the park. She did tell me to send them back and she would refund me.
