    They look very similar don't they?

    I wanted to let everybody know that I just received an email from MUBUNNY, one of the sellers I buy pins from. Apparently he has pins to sell but doesn't have time to take pictures and list them on ebay. It sounds like he has a full time job and is going to school at night. Anyway, he said if anybody wanted authentic Disney trading pins for trading at the parks, he could sell them sight unseen, but guaranteed authentic Disney trading pins, in lots of five for $7.00 per lot. That $1.40 a pin. It would be up to you whether you want miscellaneous trading pins or all cuties or a mixture. He said he cannot sell baby prince and princess pins or cutie pirate pins at that price but the head and body cuties can be included at this price. He doesn't have time to take pictures or describe them but since people are buying them as traders, he figured that wasn't important. He said he will sell them at this price as long as you buy at least five lots (25 pins). Shipping would be $1.00 per lot of five (so if you purchased 25 pins, shipping would be an additional $5.00). He said he will sell at this price as long as he has the pins. He gave me his email address and said to tell my friends. It's geepins@yahoo.com. Hope this helps anybody that is looking to buy trading pins. I just emailed him and arranged for 5 lots.

    I did not check the updated list of sellers and I'm bidding on a pin from one of them. Hopefully, someone else will come along and outbid me. :worship: I've learned my lesson, always check here first. I also went on pinpics and looked at the updated list of known scrappers. Nothing is sacred anymore, not even vinylmations. The possibility of getting a scrapper takes all the fun away from trading with others. :(

    I received a lot of 40 from retiredreadingspecialist. Most of them were great, there were a few I know are scrappers but that's OK, 4 out of 40 isn't too bad. :)

    Update. Someone did outbid me on the scrapper pin I had an offer on. :worship: Thank goodness. I didn't want to give my money to that type of person.

    Hi All! :wave:


    I wish that I would have been reading this thread a couple of weeks ago! I have been trying to complete my boys' vinylmation pin collections. We collected most while onboard the Wonder, but needed a few more for completion. Anyhow...here is my run-down of sellers so far...


    bizzybee1 - great pins! Totally legitimate from Urban Series.

    srjv526 - great pins! Totally legitimate from Park 2 Series.

    pchgargoyle - mostly great pins...I bought 3 lots of 4 (12 pins total)...2 scrappers...not too bad.

    pinterventions - one great pin...one scrapper pin...(50/50)

    funmamas - All 3 from Urban 2 Series scrappers!



    From now on I will be looking at this list before bidding or buying! BTW...I have a few more pins arriving shortly...will post the good, the bad and the ugly! :upsidedow

    Yeah, I saw on pinpics vinylmations are being scrapped. I thought those were sacred. I also noticed funmamas seem to be selling the most recently identified scrappers. I was outbid on one of their auctions, thank goodness. Has anybody bought pins from tradepinsforyou on ebay? TIA

    Haven't bought from tradepinsforyou...so I am no help with that one! I have been reading up on the different Vinylmation pins on pinpics...I am not registered with them, but do know of a couple other Vinylmation pins that are being sold as scrappers - because we now have them in our scrapper collection! I told my boys that once we complete this third set...we are finished! No more Vinylmation pins...I am getting too good at spotting the bad ones...and it's getting too difficult to find the good ones! ;)

    I know nothing about this seller, but I did just order from mikeandnancy, 8pole, skipwick, and a couple others. I will report when I get my pins from them.

    I also received some pins from treasuresforfamily, they are all really nice!

    My family has also collected vinylmations. Between Disney's price increases of these pins and multiple collections that, at this point, seem to be never ending, I'm considering drawing the line in the sand.

    I received a lot of 15 from Skipwick today, most of them look good, 1 I suspect may be a scrapper but the others all look nice.

    I just recieved my order from both shipwick and mousepinsonline. I thought that they both shipped very quickly and after some research I think most if not all were scrappers from both. Really nice scrappers but there were to many red flags for me. I will not be ordering from them again. I am really new to pin trading but that is my 2 cents.

    Can you elaborate on why you think you got scrappers from Skipwick, I also got a lot of 15 and was very happy with them. And I consider myself informed about scrappers.
