I Think steamboatwillie39 should be moved to the GREEN list, I have bought from him several times, and each pin has come in great shape, most new on card and no signs whatsoever of being a scrapper. Koolstuff2005 I am still look over those pins I got from the seller, and a prelim look makes me think they could be scrappers, so buyers beware

I hope this information helps.
Rats. That was, I thought, one sure way to spot a scrapper.

Thanks a ton for the info, though.

Hmm. One pin from one person with one post on the board. It's a good question. I think maybe that's why the old thread referenced individual posts -- so people could see individual cases, if they differed from the general rating, and judge for themselves.

I would not, one report from one person when previous FB has been great, our own personal experiences have been great. I would wait and see if we get more reports with negative experiences. There was a seller before who was on the green list (I'm blanking on his name), I personally purchased many pins from him without issues, then suddenly he started to send scrappers, we left him green until we had multiple reports, moved him to orange, yellow and ultimately red. IMHO that's how we should handle any green sellers. Does that make sense?

Koolstauff2005 is on orange because sometimes you get good stuff and sometimes bad, so the orange is buyer beware. I have bought from them myself. I didn't get scrappers, but the pins I got were damaged, and they weren't in their supposed self-taken photos. So, it is a toss-up with them, especially since their stories don't add up.

I will make some adjustments to the list.

Yes, but at some point there are too many posts, the old thread is still here so people can go look if they want.

Gyantzpod (Greg Yantz) has sent me tons of great pins. Always authentic. Look at his auctions and his feedback. The one recent feedback is from the person with one post. It's a tough call.

On the other hand mickeybigears826 is listing his auctions as factory seconds... from his ad: "Pins are listed as *used* and may have minor scratching, rough edges, blemishes, wobbly posts or color imperfections.
If you are buying from me, some pins are considered factory seconds.
If you are a collector, these pins may not be suitable for your personal collection.
This lot of pins is recommended for trading with Disney cast members. "
IMHO if a seller says he's selling seconds he should automatically go on the red list.

I agree, that does make sense. As usual, Kerri!

I'll keep going and if I have any questions, I'll look to you for guidance since you seem to be the major veteran left from the old thread Thank you for everything.

Thanks guys, I appreciate you asking. I'm happy to contribute as much as I possibly can, this is actually the 3rd eBay pin sellers thread I've been active on on the Dis. LOL I do feel like I'm pretty well informed. LOL

Thanks Mommy, for starting this new thread, I appreciate all the work. I'm working on getting pins for a June trip and will provide seller updates if relevant.

Regarding gyantzpod, I've been buying from them frequently since I started collecting 7 years ago. Never had any issues.

I'm mainly a lurker in this thread, but I also wanted to say thank you for all the hard work.
