I have purchased booster sets from marme07 and kittykat2bad. Shipping was fast and the sets were all brand new.

I would give mad4disneytoo a shot depending on what you are looking at. I looked at their auctions and most of their stuff is new on card. A lot of the loose pins don't come on cards originally. The HM stuff is where you tend to run into trouble, but I don't see anything suspicious about them. The 2 neutral feedbacks look undeserved and they leave great feedback. That is important to look at believe it or not. They have some great pins I would love to add to my collection but until I can sell off some of my duplicates I can't buy anymore :-(

mouspintrader looks good as well, however a lot of their pins are available all over ebay right now and you may be able to find a better price from a good seller, so search by the specific pins you want in a new window before you hit buy it now. Again, looking at their feedback, all five of their neutrals were from one buyer and it was over the quality of the card, not the pins. And, they leave great feedback. A lot of sellers have it on auto, but a lot don't leave any at all. I saved both of these sellers as searches because I think they look good.

Start something up yourself. It may not be as hard as you think. Check local restaurants to see if they have space to loan you for meets. We do Fuddruckers. They let us use the space for free. They have all of us buying meals so they do make money. They have a separate room they use for busy days that we meet in. We are there from open until as late as dinner time. Otherwise there are a lot of public areas you could probably use for free. Get the buzz going with a yahoo group and put it in your signature anywhere you are allowed. Post about it anywhere you can. Generate a buzz. When you start seeing a lot of people joining, that is the time to try to put together a meet. We have been at three Fuddruckers because the first one closed down. The second wasn't as thrilled to have us there. One of the managers from the original moved to a new location and welcomed us with open arms there, but she couldn't give us the food discount we used to get at the original.

Sorry this went off-topic. Hope that is ok. Just trying to help out a fellow trader.

I loved disneypinsandvinylmation... Only thing I don't like is there were no Buy It Nows. I had to wait and bid. But, I got a lot of stuff last minute with no one bidding on it. They have a few things now I want, but I am so broke lol... I did break down and buy another booster pack from brandnamestuff. I really wanted it, and they had the best price plus free shipping. Most sellers were breaking it up and selling it off pin by pin. It was one I couldn't wait to see if I could get in November. I had to have it now!

Thanks for the heads up on marme07. I saved the seller as a search. Their stuff looks good.

i just got some more from disneypinsandvinylmation...and the packages look new and sealed....
the pins from them are great, just a bummer that you have to bid....i've won a 9 booster sets from them, but 3 different payments.....i'm waiting on the last 2 sets.....but i'd buy from them again

also won some sets from angali35....these too were bids on booster sets and they look new and unopened to me as well

also just got a package from gitanoman....i've bought from them in the past, but it was more of a loose lot and they were legit..the most recent ones i won (also by bidding, not buy it now) were unopened booster sets....and they look new to me too

lastly i won a set from kittykat2bad...i'm still waiting for them to be delivered..i won them the same time as the gitanoman auction...

dh wanted to get a lot of pins to trade, but i think between the 6 sets of purchases i made from these 4 sellers we have a little over 100 pins...which is good bc i think there actually might be a couple or so we'll want to keep.....and i also did not win any duplicate booster sets....even tho 2 of the ones i won i purposely set out to trade for last time...go figure....i'm cuties fan....

i would recommend these sellers and would buy from them again....well, i still hold out comment on kittykat2bad just because i haven't received my package yet, but i read good things about them before

Just wanted to share a few of my recent pin purchases from ebay:

Purchased a few things from kittykat2bad. All were brand new sealed in package. I purchased from them twice in a 10-day period, and the second transaction took a while to ship to me. All pins were great though.

Purchased 2 lots of pins (each lot had 25) from disneyfamily801. I think I received 5 scrappers in the lot of 50. She did offer to refund my money, but I told her I wanted to send the ones back to her that I suspected were scrappers and have her replace them with new ones. She agreed to it, and after 10 days of sending them back I did receive 5 more that look to be authentic.

Purchased from eside56. Everything purchased from them appears to be authentic and in great shape.

Overall I've had positive experiences purchasing pins on ebay. I'm grateful to this thread for keeping me informed on what to look for as far as scrappers are concerned.

He he, I wonder if you are the one who kept outbidding me on the disneypinsandvinylmation sets

I usually take 150 to 200 pins to trade and end up running out before our trip is over. I trade like crazy. I don't know how many to take for my cruise, and my trip to the park is going to be so much shorter this time that I don't want to pack too many but also don't want to be short in case a cast member has something I really want.

Thanks for letting us know about the other sellers and let us know how the newest purchases turn out. I am still waiting on some purchases dh made so I will post when they show up. Sadly I keep saying I have enough, but I never seem to have enough. I think I have a problem.

My recent transaction....
I bought 2 pins from mousebuys. Both were sealed and look completey authentic. No problems and very quick shipping. Got them at great prices as well.
I bought one WDI pin from mad4disneytoo. It was sealed, on the correct backing, and looks great and authentic. Also, no problems and quick shipping.

Forgot to add, the WDI pin has the original Mickey's of Glendale sticker.

I purchased a lot of 25 from disneyfamily801 and I had 10 confirmed fakes (typos, wrong colors, wrong finish, wrong thickness), and 10 suspected fakes (rough edges, imperfect finishes). The remaining 5 were clean.

They offered a refund, but I like the "Swap for clean ones" idea since some of these were soooo bad.

I've had FAR better luck buying booster packs. Just picked up 3 sealed packs for $23 which gives me 15 pins. For authentic pins I can't really beat that price, and I can trade them with confidence.

I had an awful experience with 52JCMdisneypins. I bought a lot of 30 2 years ago before our trip for the kids to trade. When I got them it just did not seem "right" so I started checking online....holy cow...I did not even know what a scrapper or fake was!! The pins I got were I am pretty sure either counterfeit or scrappers. They all came in little baggies with instructions to "be sure to take the pins out and put them on your lanyard before going to the park". Most of the pins had the Mickeyhead imprints on the backs....no clean edges. Classic counterfeit. The others were either off colour or pitted. There were maybe 3 in the whole lot that I could not tell 100% if they were either real or fake.

Geez...never knew I would be such an expert on spotting fake Disney pins...all I wanted to do was get some traders for the kids. Little did I know!!!

I documented each pin front and back with photos and sent the info to the anti-piracy dept and followed up with a phone call. I was so mad!!! It totally took some of the magic out of planning our first DL trip. That made me mad! Disney did not seem to be concerned really. I ended up filling with Paypal. They made me send the pins back at my expense for a refund. I neg'd the seller. I ended up getting some good pins from different sellers before I got the bad batch, enough for the kids to have fun....that was the main thing.

We are going back to DL and I have been collecting pins from Ebay for a while.....NO BIG LOTS! I learned my lesson. I have been using your guide as to which sellers should be okay. THANK-YOU!! I have been buying individual pins, and asking questions if I am not sure. I have a nice supply for the kids and as far as I can tell they are good pins. I did buy some pins from Sleepy's Emporium, individually no lots though, and they all look good. The ones with the Mickey Head stamps on the back look good, nice and clean. None of them are suspect on the lists of bad pins. So I had a good experience with him.

Thank-you so much for this thread! It has helped me and I feel good about giving the kids pins to trade.....even knowing half of the pins they end up with are probably going to be fakes.
