Default About Time

I would like to say , since the Mj hype has died down has people noticed a couple of POS's have dispersed ?

One was banned Today on another site GooonBlott( About bloody time )

Sometimes it takes slower people to catch on but in the end the vermin gets eradicated.

I bet a few people are feeling like idiots when they defended these toolbags when they where running rampant with Ohhhhhhhhhhh it's legit and the constant MJ hype threads fueling there poor broke bum pockets, robbing the big hitters because they can as it is so easy to do so .

Made me sick when you see that Idiot Rare Air with his 50 retractions in 6 mths and his mate M100 Hyping there bogus sales from friend to friend and claiming them as legit sales,also the analyst with all his bogus stats that i bet if not involved looks and feels like a complete fool that he is .

People have to realise that a lot of people that collect are not what they seem it is the internet and these tools are looking to cash in it is that simple !!

In my 5 years back collecting I have noticed there are some so called collectors that just go over there head with the whole so called glamour of being the man on the boards because obviously they lack status in the real world, but in reality they resort to scamming to keep themselves up there , but in the end it all unravels because the facade that is fake will always fall away in time .

Sometimes people need to step back and not look like fools by defending the " Cool Ones' just because they used credit and ripped people off to flash off some pathetic cardboard

Gio and OJ and many others where correct all along with all the BS artist's hyping MJ to the moon shows how low a lot of members really are and shows a few have seem to get under the radar , but because someone that was supposed to have status know's them it's ok to be a POS .

Small minded people need to respect members that stand up for the hobby in a whole in stead of thinking they are cool by insulting .

I don't see may others standing up as they are scared to not be part of the "cool crew "

Anyway a good day for the forums another one got exposed .

ohhhhhhhhhhhh it's NOT legit !!!!!!!!

Yeah, I took the whole "innocent until proven guilty" approach with some of these guys, purely because I hadn't seen or got involved in the details of the "deals". But I think I know enough now to:
A) stay away from the MJ market altogether because I CBF having to look for scammers all the time
B) trust your judgement with these guys in the future!
C) only focus on the up sides of the hobby and not get caught up in the negative bs that surrounds many parts of it

I was recently given a suggestion that a good set to collect would be the Gold Embossed refractors and I said to that person no way, especially with all the fake hype... he was unsure what I meant!
Rare is one person I do not trust at all. Don't really have anything to say about anybody else because I don't really know nor care to look deeper.

Its why you should never buy based on hype. These guys faked so many auctions and many people got caught in the hype, now holding cards worth a 10th what they paid.

Then they list them on ebay and are having a hard time getting anything close.

When a $50 card instantly starts selling for $1000, its pretty obvious.

I just saw Gonblott was banned on that forum.

The whole market for 90s inserts have really cooled down. Now the market correction is starting to show even more so. Ashame that innocent people got caught up and taken for a ride.

I still love the story how rare air got 6 copies of 97-98 MJ Finest ref emb /74 within 1 year after he claimed that there is nothing in ebay for past 6 years. And the amazing part is that people sold these 6 copies to him instead to ebay.

And that m1000 guy. He said in forum before that he collect .jpeg because it is fun and it is free.

Obviously an exaggeration, but it is getting rather annoying.

Maybe When the MJ Drama was happening people should of used common sense instead of shooting people down when they where making valid points .

But i guess there are more sleepers than people with open eye's .

Bad luck for the people that paid big bucks and fell for all the broke salesman crap these dudes where spewing out there holes for the better part of 18 mths .

I bet Gio is saying I told you all so SMH !!!

Prizms haven't even begun to reach the level of the Retro hype, the 30 page threads for each single card were super overkill lol.

The Retro hype was just downright obnoxious. It doesn't surprise me at all that it has been forgotten already. Personally, I thought it was one of the ugliest sets ever made.

The way he went about it was the problem though... continuous rambling, posting where not necessary, etc. You could know how to get rid of cancer but if you annoy the bejesus out of everyone trying to get it out, nobody's going to want to pay attention.

Its not the scammers we should be worried about. Its the lemmings with social disorder that feel the need to fit in that blindly follow and trust these guys. They end up being taken advantage of and the rest of us have to pay the price for it.

Just look around you. Anytime someone gets scammed, they end up the winners for being the stupid ones. The rest of us get hammered with having to pay for their mistakes. Whether it be through increases of paypal % because too many claims, or because somehow we end up with cards that were stolen and we had no clue but have to return them because the pimple head who messed his pants thinking he was going to get a steal on a lebron RPA sent his cards to a ghost.

Scammers are always around. they aren't the problem. Stupid people are!
