What a piece of **** the sign I mean. He's been laying low for a while. All private feedback as a seller. Lists one at a time to test the water. Probably thinks ebay won't have time to do anything like remove the listing. He has this one worded very carefully. I like to seeing there are no bids.

I feel like bidding $3,000, then leave Feedback that he is selling FAKE/FANTASY Signs.

If you bid $3,000 I will bid over you. Only way to show the high bid since a no reserve auction. Then with 24 hrs. and 5 minutes left, bid retraction from both of us. The bid retraction has to take place before the auction is less then 24 hrs. from ending.

I'm in if you are?

It was just a suggestion. Screw the feedback, I'd like to see the seller droll over $3,000 for the fake/repro/pile of s**t they are selling...then take it all away from them. One bid retraction isn't going to hurt your ebay standing, unless you do it all the time?? I don't know, just saying...

Anyone else interested?

I hope none of the the people from eBay read our post like this as it will make them think we are no better than the people we are reporting. Let's clean up our act and stop all the unprofessional comments like this and put an end to all the request for gift payments via paypal. We can't win the war if we look like we are willing to do wrong to make our point.

Jerry, I believe Oldgas already asks everyone not to request payment as a gift, believe I've see it written several places. As to what ebay thinks of "us" I for one could care less what ebay thinks of me. They get plenty of my money, been on since 98 with feedback well over 3000. All ebay cares about is profit, with all due respect why do you care what ebay thinks? Again speaking for myself I think our act doesn't need cleaning, it's showing results, that would be a good thing. As to the comments being unprofessional, well there aren't many professionals on here, most are hobbyists who have a very legitimate concern that the hobby is being adversely affected by the thieves. I don't share your view that the people on here helping expose the thieves are wrong at all.

Thanks for adding that link a couple of people have been questioning the die-cut standard. Old or New ?
Well you can see two he sold. One for over $400 pretty good profit on a $20 sign.
I don't know why ebay lets him keep listing. Yes the Hancock is phony. Everything he sells is phony.
The completed list is like a catalog for reproduction signs.
Do you have to be a member just to read posts? Can he come to the site and read the threads without posting or being a member?

I agree here with Doug on this one. Everyone can see what is posted, so we need to watch putting details on what is wrong with the signs. I have seen a few that are scary lately. Someone is going to wind up with a real expensive repop soon i am afraid.

Google translator is good enough for the repoppers overseas to make out what we say on here. Also there is a ton of repops being made in the states!

Also Ed, I like that the truth is posted on here and this site is not here to work one over on somebody.

The truth is that repops are getting dangerous for collectors.

Hahaha you got to love what the seller added to the posting:

"I have had a lot of interest in this sign. I will not end early or sell to an "oldgas" member for $3000. If you wish to place those bids and retract them, yes. ebay watches what everyone does. That website has gone way down hill with its shabby members. Thanks for the emails and good laughs. "

Apparently he removed that comment.

I asked about nonmembers reading the threads because I want to refer buyers with questions on repops to oldgas and I want to tell them they can read about signs without being members. I don't really care if they like the comments or not if the truth hurts so be it.
thanks

This is the one that was on from the beginning. I had the # written down and the original listing is gone, but he has relisted it with the # you have on this post Randy. Same sign different list # just gets fishier by the hour.

Relisted in different category and claims he doesn't know age. Oh well at least we slowed him down, and messed up his easy streak. Just hope the stupid buyers see past it, but they never do it seems. Fentonlover and others have signs listed in decorative collectibles now as well....yet another out for ebay sellers.

seller seems to be concerned about the buyers identity-
private listing - bidders' identities protected,
what a great guy.. I see somebody has bid on the POS at
.01 - its not worth the postage- it looks like he is in
a rush to dump it with a 1 day auction- maybe he thinks
we won't notice.. cool
