The Masterpieces "buyback" Fakes are Back, Back Again, Tell a Friend

Oh these guys never stop:
and just added to ebay:

I'd add a comparison to a real Lincecum auto but this one isn't even close.  Come on bro, you can do better than that.



 Here is the auction

Excellent Article on Hauls of Shame

I find this stuff to be very interesting. These are the big boys of collecting and they have to go through this stuff.

Yeah, I know I have a problem

But tell me they don't look good:

Picked these up from the Sewing Machine Guy.  He, like many of us, has had a crisis of collecting. I'll keep these around in case he decides he wants these back.  I've done that before. I have bought collections from people and then given them the opportunity to buy them back.
