Default Hey guys I'm thinking of bidding on this, tell me what you think...

http://cgi.ebay.com/2000-Playoff-Con...QQcmdZViewItem
I think he has four of these and his feedback is 0. Hmmmmmmm......nothing fishy here eh....
Seriously, I really don't think he has these and feel bad for anyone that bids on these and sends either a "personal check or money order"

The auctions could be real and everyone started at 0 feedback but for myself I would stayaway.

And 3 appear to have bids from the same "0" feedback bidder.

Not to mention - "selling out of personal collection", which constitutes 4 rookie cards of the hottest player in the NFL. Not exactly a personal collection in my books...

2 words - STAY AWAY.

Last time I had this feeling, I did a buy-it-now on a Tiger Woods SP Signature 8x10 - delayed payment, the seller started sending nasty e-mails, I stalled, then he was kicked off in a couple more days.

Remember this seller and see if he EVER gets a feedback on one of these cards. He may - but personally, not worth the risk.

For sure stay away. Sometimes if something, even the smallest thing looks wrong, I won't bid. I save the item on Ebay, just to see if the transaction with feedback went through. More often than not I'm right with my hunches. With a 0 feedback, the cards I personally wouldn't sell FIRST are cards like these. Something is definately wrong.

Some people will set up two different Ebay accounts. One as seller and one as buyer. I can see this person outbiding someone with their other account as well. They can also leave positive feedback for themselves with the other account. I have unfortunatly been burned like that. I bought a pair of hockey skates NIB from a seller with a 6 feedback. As soon as I made my paypal payment I recieved an email with a tracking number from the Canada Post telling me when the skates would be shipped. After a couple of weeks I hadn't recieved the skates and I went to check the Canada Post site to see an update and it was still at the "sortation plant." I had to file a paypal dispute and finally 3 months later I got a full refund. That really sucked.

I tried to view what you were bidding on and it says it has been removed by Ebay. Hmmm, I think everyone here was right, pretty fishy.
