Newbie needs help

I've read through most of the thread and I'm so glad I did some research before I bought pins off eBay. How do I find a large lot that is from a reputable seller to take for trading? This is our first time going to Disney ever and we leave on the 15th. I know a little late but didn't even know there was such a thing until today.

Not sure what your price point is that you're looking for, but for legit pins, it's worth spending the little bit extra. I've only bought a couple times off eBay, but my go to seller is spartankid34. The last time I bought from her, she told me she sells the extra pins that she has after buying packs to add to her collection. If you are looking for FAST SHIPMENT, that is another plus for spartankid34...received my package in 2-3 days.

I had sent JeffreyYoung a message and asked if the pins he was selling were on cards. His answer is below


Hi - Sorry, the pins in our listings do not include cards. We purchase our pins from pin wholesalers who do not supply cards. There are many many other EBAY listing for individual pins on retail cards from other sellers. The pins we are selling are not valuable collectables but are great for trading with Disney cast members in the Parks for pins they have that you may want. Thank you.

Jeffrey

It seems to me that when sellers state the pins are not valuable collectibles, then they are knowingly selling scrappers or knockoff pins. Sad. : /

First time buying pins off eBay and received a pack today from waxman16. Anyone ever dealt with this seller? I HIGHLY doubt the authenticity of these pins as the weight and quality seem not as good as our originals. I knew I may be taking a chance, but they are all so cute! BUT, I don't want to trade them if they are fakes.

New seller of fakes/scrappers

I think dream499 is selling scrappers or fakes even though she is on the "good" list. I have received two pins from her now that are suspect. One had a dimple in the paint and the other has the back edges filed and the wrong back stamp. I think this seller should be on the "buyer beware" list! -lwhite58
