I don't dispute that his stuff is fake, but I just want to know how to tell. I know that some of his signs have holes in wrong places, and all have rusty backs, but are we sure all of his stuff are fakes?
If so, there is a way to get to him even though the auctions are private. When people leave feedback, they can be contacted through eBay, even though you can't tell what they bought. Someone could contact all of them and let them know that what they bought was probably fake. I'm not going to do it because I don't know enough about the items to say if they are fake or not. Most of these are new to me. Anybody else want to take on the task? One good thing is that he only takes paypal, so they can get back anything still in his account, and may be able to track him by his address on his credit card (or something). He probably doesn't keep much in there, but anything would help.
The reason I ask if they are all fake is that he has ALOT of stuff for sale. It probably takes a long time to make a high-quality fake like those, and he doesn't seem to make a ton of each. If I were faking signs (I never would), I would make 4 or 5 different signs and then just churn out a ton of each. He has such a wide collection that it must be an incredible amount of work.
That brings up another question: how are these signs (fakes and real) made? Are they just painted freehand, or are they made by screening?
