Re: Becoming desensitised to money due to collecting?

Also you’d never hand over vast amounts of money to someone you didn’t know without having the product you’re paying for in hand, but nowadays we don’t bat an eyelid at sending friends and family to a complete stranger with no protection if something goes south :shock: A lot of people do, and somet...

Re: TT being creative or a real mis-card?

The bonding gap is a clear sign of a legit seal, but many factory seals have no bonding gap as well. This particular Vader also has a bubble placement not typical of a Toni, the bubble is much higher than he would have placed it. And I just spoke to Kathy at Vectis about the Vader miscard. It was wi...
