Since the first lot of pins I bought off eBay was mostly scrappers, I like to refer to this board. I don't like wasting money or being ripped off. It is nice to get input from lots of different buyers and sellers on here. Thanks for everyone's input.

Man I really wish I was better at identifying good pins!! I recently bought 35 pins off eBay. One 25 piece lot and a 10 piece. Different sellers. I feel like I've got 3 scrappers out of the bunch but who knows! They could be legit. Also the ones I think are legit could be garbage. Lol. I just try to make sure edges are smooth, paint is shiny, and proper markings on the back. I feel like if I trade based on what I feel is a good quality pin (no matter where it came from) I will be ok.

I have even looked at my pins I know I've bought from disney and lots have flaws so I guess you just never know. Either way I love my pins. Fake or not.

Awesome!! He was great so far. He is trading out one lanyard for a different style. I will update when they arrive.

Can someone help me find a pin lot?
I'm on ebay right now and I've been searching the pin lots and all I keep finding are the lots from the red listed ebay sellers. Can anyone point me in the direction of a lot of about 50 pins for a reasonable price? Please. I found out yesterday I'm going down for my birthday at the end of the month and we (I should me) are scrambling to get ready, and I need pins.

Also has anyone heard of couger85 or jeffreyyoung?

Bizzybee1 usually has starter sets of pins. Still new on card. You pay about $2 per pin. Great deal since the pins are so much more new. Compare prices to the disney store and you'll see. Plus they are legit.

Thanks! I'll check her out. I'm just really looking for about 50 pins or so that are reasonably priced.

I just want to put in a good word for the seller rosethorns! I ordered quite a large package of what was supposed to be 80 pins. It was all brand new booster packs and a couple of lanyard starter sets in original packaging. In addition to that, there were a bunch of individual pins on cards thrown in as freebies. I got 92 pins in total. I am so pleased with this transaction, as these pins came to about $1 a pin including shipping. I highly recommend this seller if you're looking for some good pins from a reputable seller.

This my first post to this thread but I have been reading and learning for a while now. Thanks so much for all the wonderful advice and the lists of who and who not to buy from on EBay! I'm sorry to say that I was pretty uninformed when I started buying pins on EBay and some of the sellers I purchased from are indeed on the Red list!! I was able to see that quite a lot of the pins I purchased were scrapers! Now that I know the difference, where to go to research any pins I have or may want to purchase, and which sellers to avoid, I will feel much better about my pin trading!! Thanks again!!

hi everyone, please be weary of the seller hotsaay.

they are not up front about item condition and don't use photos of the actual pins they send you, so you can't tell what condition they are in.

they have alot of neutral and negative reviews but only one is specifically about quality, but i received two pins one was phineas and ferb pin where the "and" had rubbed off, the second a finding nemo seagull pin that was very dirty and scratched up, none of which was reported in the auction.

they did not pretend they had sent me a quality product, and refunded my money right away. but i would not suggest buying from them.
