If anyone is looking for REAL pins, I am selling some of my collection on ebay right now. Spending money for our upcoming trip. My username is: surfergirl602
I agree. The lanyard/HM pins out there are bad. I don't think it's all the sellers' fault. I traded for HM pins for the first time this past May and it was hard, really hard, trying to tell if a pin was authentic vs fake. They look so good. And the CMs can't tell either because they have them on their lanyards first thing in the morning. I came home with a few and after checking and comparing, I realized some of mine must be scrappers too, so I won't even list any pins of this type on ebay. The only ones I sell are my pins from 2000-2007 collection (mostly LE, DVC, AP and CM pins -- though I have lots from the original lanyard series when it first began).

I can't compete with the folks selling scrappers, because I won't sell authentic pins as cheap as the scrappers, so folks have to decide what they want. Plus there were so many sellers selling batches of really cheap (fake) pins from China for very little money on ebay.

While I have some authentic pins on my ebay auction (JJT219) my $3-4 per pin for some auctions can't seem to compete with the folks selling fake ones for $1. Most of my pins are LE though and I've not really gotten into that area yet, esp. during the ebay summer slump.

Surfergirl, you have some nice pins for very good prices, you should do well if folks realize that you get what you pay for. Like you, I'm saving to take the kids and grandkids on a cruise in 2012, so all of my profits go into my cruise fund account! Good luck!!

I ordered from them too and they also gave me a full refund when I complained about the scrappers! It's amazing the stay in business, but I guess alot of people don't care what they buy!

This, exactly....a lot of people just don't care at all. It's unfortunate but it's the truth.

I'm thinking of taking the plunge with buzzybee1 soon. It's just so hard to get myself to actually go through with it. I have to give it a shot though. I may try dizneymandoug too, he has gotten positive reviews here as well. I will post as soon as I actually buy and receive.

I bought a Walt Disney World Deluxe Starter Kit from Buzzybee1 on ebay. It was around $36 with shipping..It came in Disney Packaging and looks legit! It came with 8 very large pins and a lanyard....this is my first time ever buying anything off ebay/buying pins/seeing pins...I'm hoping I did good! Good luck!


I just opened up the packaging to find that one of my pins has a broken back. I contacted the seller and hopefully there is something that can me done.

Thanks so much for sharing. Please keep us updated with the results. I would love to know if they will do right by you. I hope they take care of it. Fingers crossed.

I would stay away from this person, as they mention "trying to keep as many different style of pins on hand." Also, "selections changes as I get new lots in." And, "new, individually bagged." The picture shown, has some known scrappers in it.

Williams has nothing listed today, but past sales look like legit pins. This person does buy pins from people I am familiar with.

Smile, I'm not sure about this seller. There is not enough info for me to draw a conclusion. The price may be to good to be true. Especially, if it includes free shipping after five plus pins.
