It wouldn't be that difficult, if the buyer hasn't seen one before.  (That'd be most buyers, I suppose...why would you want two?) It wouldn't fool anyone that has, mind you.  I grow increasingly suspicious, especially with that horrible pic.   :roll:

If it's white, and not the original yellowish, then he certainly is.

And the picture is certainly white.

Wasn't his 'pedigree' confirmed ages ago as having stashed a box away that's being sold off periodically?

If it's not him who was it? :?

notice in the txt it says "Scan didn't process the color correctly --- it's actually a buff cover."

yeah i think it was DL36 who mentioned last time who it was - someone certainly did too, but i cant remember.

Copy I received from him a while ago is the 'yellowish' colour and definitely looks authentic.

I don't know the guy personally, but he has sold several of them, and IIRC he told me long ago that he had a few stashed away. He intended to pull a NK and sell one every once in a while.

I'm just saying he should take some of the profit and put it into a digital camera and/or scanner.  That picture looks as shady as it gets, and if he's legit he doesn't need that hassle.  It doesn't take more than 5 minutes to get a half-decent scan of that item, there's no real excuse.

I spoke to him back in Dec 05 when he sold one (to wade168) and he told me that he had 'a few' left and was going to sell on every 6 months or so.  Of course, although somewhat reassuring, that doesn't actually prove anything.  :)

If he has a case of 100 left then this extremely rare item is no longer that.  For now Im am staying away from this item.

He only has 2 or 3 left. It's still plenty rare.

Your right it would be, do you think that's all he has left?

At $267 (2 bids only!), $75-100 high already, IMO. What on earth was the minimum bid on that? :)

Saving grace is the box color (i.e. white); uncommon even for a 7th. Trimmed scans don't help and at least two supps. with label residue.

Still looks very sweet, though...



(Corey's set finished where it opened, at $99 - looked almost as good, and was a 6th, I think; even allowing for dodgy photo!

Add to that the one Allan picked up at ~$84 which only required re-SWing plus bagging & boarding of the books/ref sheets to make an excellent presentation/trophy item).

Yeah,

One from Kaskoid wishing the buyer joy in adding this to his collection ... way back in mid-April 06 ....

or he could just slap on a huge surcharge for the unsuspecting buyer

Kaskoid => Tim Kask; like it says in the text + Qs & As. :)

The "winner" obviously wished to remain anonymous. ;)



(Maybe they saw the $305 for the OCE + supps and carried out a contingent tangential multivariate extrapolation of relative worth in the year 2020.

Took their time to hit the BIN, anyhow ^^).
