Hi Chuck.Plastered_Dragon wrote:People don't like to be fooled. Even if it is for their own good. I understand the hostility this "test" has evoked. What Raphael/Dragsamou need to keep in mind is that they DO have excellent reputations and therefore people trust them.
So the test, per se, is not really all that accurate. Yes if someone you have grown to trust decides to fool you, they're probably going to pull it off.
A better test would have been to set up an alternate account under a new username to offer the card. This would have reflected a more accurate representation of the gullibility of myself and others. I assumed the cards were legit because of who was posting about them. Not because I have some great knowledge of misprints.
I can understand eventually hostility from People that have Offered the money(Even if those are more than Happy with that issue),
I don't from the others that are not even concerned.
A Better Test with a "Jon Doe",will not have provided this result.Now is the interesting part:
Well,I thought the same thing when,I bought my Albinos from a Very reputable seller....Result is a Faded Card ;-)I assumed the cards were legit because of who was posting about them. Not because I have some great knowledge of misprints
If I will have ever traded or sold that card,I will have done it without knowledge.The point of Trust is one thing with a Human but with a Card,it's another story.Now,finding authenticity for most of the Misprints is easy but Few sections need a Huge Warning:Foils,Albinos,Miscolored...
At least,from Now,Members of this Forum will know how to make the difference(I will post later the results of my scanning....Great Results :-) )
