Always regarding Alpha Misprint

That's a fake from Peru; there were a ton on ebay a few years ago.

As far as Alpha misprints go, I have a few crimps, some miscuts where you can see another card, and a few inking errors (blackened top area).

There are a lot of off-center Alpha. So much so that for some cards the centered ones are worth a premium.

So this auction should be reported to Ebay isn't it?

Slinga, have you some pic of the cards you are talking about?
Would you sell something or prefer to keep them?

Lmk ;)

Hi
No, it should not as the Seller clearly indicates:
This could be an extremely rare find of a misprint or maybe one of those beta full sheet cut outs that were misprinted. Because of the nature of this auction I do not accept returns and I cannot guarantee the cards authenticity.

Ok, but in fact you are selling a fake stating in the acution title that's a Misprint...

Is not a good practice doing so... for sure he will be earned with a negative from the buyer....

Hi
This is indeed a tricky auction, but the Seller tries to protect himself in the description, pretending that he doesn't know about that card.Any serious Collector will run away from this kind of auction.

If I'm not sure about an item I'm selling, I will not try to sell it on ebay, especially if my account is still "virgin" with a 100% positive feedback record... I fear that this 100% will change soon.

I have informed the seller that it is a fake. I have not received a response. I have also reported it to ebay so hopefully they can take it down, so someone will not buy it and lose hundreds of dollars on an illegal counterfeit.

Read that description! xD

"Because of the nature of this auction I cannot accept returns nor can I guarantee this cards authenticity. Therefore you are actually bidding on one revised mountain in mint condition. The mox comes with free."
