I forgot that.....
anyways....you call me..
it would take to much work to write it out..
but,I will show you how I try and avoid crooked sellers.
Although..big announcement today from ebay..
seems they are getting even more money grubbing..
they are now going to charge FVF..on shipping...
which translates to...all shipping costs...will rise,.

I will also say I have good experiences with totaljohn. Very pleased.

Does anyone have any experience with the ebay seller tennpins? They have 99.2% positive feedback, but also have tons of neutral/negative feedback about not sending pins and sending nasty emails. So I'm a little hesitant to buy from that user..

I agree..I have bought from totaljohn also..
no problems...
as for tennpins..
I recall buying from them last year perhaps..
and..I do not recall a problem.
BUT...
When i went to get something from them last month...
I read their feedback...
and ..would NEVER buy from them now.
yes..you could get lucky like i once did..and have a decent transaction.
but,
after seeing the way he talks to buyers..
and..all the folks that never got their stuff,
why..take that chance?

Just want a lot of 20 for our upcoming trip and can't find any reputable dealers. Any one heard of DIZZneY 4 PINS? I'm thinking not a good one because of the amount offered.

You must have put the name down wrong..
as I could not search him for you.
But,as I have often repeated in this thread...
Disney has an amazing deal going on now for trading pins..
and it has been extended to most of the bigger shops now..
even in the magic Kingdom..
spend 40 bucks and get an 8 pin lanyard as a pwp for 15.
It is about time that they have offered reasonably priced traders.
The only caveat with them is...
The cm lanyards are loaded with em...
so..you have to hope that the cm you are trading with...
does not have the same pin already.

Yeah, I don't think I'll be buying anything from tennpins. Seems too risky and the way he acts/talks is a complete turn off.

What about mr.disneycollector ? Anyone have experience with him? Lots of positive feedback, but a couple neutrals and negatives about selling scrappers..

Wow!
girl...you KNOW that mr.disneycollector is selling fakes.
You have to...
ask about folks that sell pins that have a chance of being real...
not a seller..who ONLY sells scrappers..
and...almost all comments in neutral are about fake pins..
look at the prices too.
Try not to pay attention to positive feedback..
when first investigating a seller...
as most people have no idea of quality or what they are buying..
they do not know leather from plastic or poly from silk..
so...ALWAYS read any neutrals or negatives..before making a decision.
Read them...
carefully...
it is the only way of knowing...

I didn't know
It's just hard to tell because he doesn't seem to be using a lot of his own pictures and yes, he does have some really cheap prices but the one I was looking at seemed priced as I would have expected it to be.
Just asking about his feedback because you never know, most of them could be the real deal and a fake gets in every once in a while or something.
But I will believe you if you say that they are all scappers.

Sorry,
You are right...
not everyone...can tell....
I did not look at all of his pins..
I looked at the first page of 50 or so...
and all of them on the page..
were common scrappers.
I go to the park at least 3 times a week..
and..I see them all the time.
i have traded for them in the past..
and the best way to tell..
is they feel lighter.
I have to say..
that lately...
at least 50 % of pins on cm lanyards are scrappers..
and..I see the culprits everyday..
most are young families..
that obviously..
cannot afford to trade the amounts that they do.
I saw a family tonight...
the mother had a bag full of scrappers..and 3 kids.
each kid had at least 30 pins on their lanyards.[most were scrappers]
We were on line for the pin board at dtd....
one of the kids ran up to the parents with a rack pin...
and..begged for it.
the father asked the price...
He heard it was 7 bucks..
turned beet red...
and whispered to the wife...
"I would NEVER pay 7 bucks for a pin..
I had no idea how much they were here."
The family then proceeded to trade 2 scrappers each...
for pins..that cost someone else 7 bucks...
so..as I keep repeating..
and will keep repeating..
currently at disney..
in most of the stores...
you can buy a lovely pwp set for 15 bucks that has 8 pins.
They are real..big and do not look cheap.
ps..pm me the pin you were looking to buy from that dealer...
and..
I will search ebay for you and send you the name of a seller that has a real one.

How about disney_gal68? Same thing - small lots of pins.

I can't tell for sure on every single pin, however, between the both of them, some of the pins pictured are scrappers based on the coloring. I'm unsure of some of their pins, but the majority of the pictures are for pins that are well known to have scrappers made. Now, that doesn't make every pin of that type a scrapper, but it's suspicious to me that the have very few pins that off the top of my head I don't know there's a scrapper made....

They both have ALL scrappers...
one of em..has one real pin in the bunch..
and that is because it is a common trader.
I look at both of them..as
they belong..UNDER the red list.
In fact...
I was really happy that I traded a cm..for a cool pin today..
that I swore was real...
and..I really liked it.
as I did not see it as a regular scrapper...
it is the pink minnie ears with the gold crown.
But, now that I see it in her listings..
I KNOW it is fake..what a bummer.
another one bites the dust...
Do you know what I do at this point..when I get home and realize..
or find out like I did now...
that I have scrappers?
That I traded for with cms?
I go to guest relations with them...
tell em..and they trade em for good ones..
I also insist...that they not put em in the book.
I started that...
as I was coming home with about 10 fakes a week..
from trading with cms..
and..I KNOW what most of em look like by now.
and that is ridiculous.
but girls..once again...
anyone who offers lots with a buy it now price of under a buck a pin...
you KNOW it is fake.
ps..I rechecked disney gal or whatever the crooks name is...
and..she is a new seller...
no completed listings...
so...I looked further...
she buys her fake pins from other known crooks..disneypinfreak,funmamas..to name a few
insane..
the crooks are now breeding..NEW crooks...lol
in fact..i rechecked the other one just now....
she has also bought from disneypinfreak..he is polluting the market all by himself....

What great information. I have been throwing them away or giving them to my nieces. I have a bag of them that I traded for last trip (about 20). I will take them to guest relations when I go in June. Thanks so much for this information
