Re: AFA end loose u-grading

My first thoughts were also does this actually mean they are going to stop opening sealed items, if that is indeed the case it's a huge win for the hobby as a whole, if not then this is a hollow gesture, I am keeping my fingers crossed it is the former. I am sure this announcement will delight the l...

Re: 4-LOM Mailer Baggie

It is possible, I asked someone stateside yesterday their thoughts, someone with weight & a lot of experience & his initial quick assessment was correct box, but fake baggie, it then came to my mind about the overstock palitoy find in Australia, there were a great many mint loose 4 lom's in ...

Re: 4-LOM Mailer Baggie

Hey Chad Right I don't have it shown on my guide as from what I know to date it has never been found in this baggie with any other confirmed multi pack or overstock. Funny thing is this is the only item I ever got off Jeff FOC, he sent me one to look at as this issue with the ESB-h baggie has reared...

Re: 4-LOM Mailer Baggie

Hmmm. So you suspect this baggie is fake, or the combination is wrong? The mailer was completely sealed with original yellowed tape when I got it. The way it has gone crispy it's definitely very old tape. Well I know loads were being sold by Jeff so I can only say I am on the fence when it comes to...

Re: 4-LOM Mailer Baggie

Hmmm, well you know who was selling loads of these that had the ESB-h's in?? can't say they are wrong, but I now have to regard them as questionable due to the source :|

Was hoping you'd say you've had it 15 years to change my mind

Re: Solving problems in the hobby - how?

I had always tried to make it to a FF, but since the baggiegate scandal broke & Jeff's continued presence at the event as a trader, I sadly now have no compulsion to attend one of them which is a crying shame, as other that that 1 point I would of liked to go to the event.
