    EBAY Buyers BEWARE !!!!!

    Maybe it dosen't matter to some of us here, BUT the Peterson "AUTHENTIC" jerseys on EBAY are FAKES !!!!

    For one , Reebok HAS NOT released the 2007 authentic jerseys yet.

    Secondly, look at the #'s. The Vikes changed their #'s slightly with the uniform change giving them a round edge, the ones on EBAY don't..

    Also, look on the white jerseys. The "Vikings" under the collar on the front dosen't have the gold trim, it's just purple...

    To some it may not matter, but I thought I'd throw a head's up...
    I ll be dead and cold before I m green and gold

    Re: EBAY Buyers BEWARE !!!!!

    People, up to 80% of all sports memorabilia and items are fake.

    Here is some sound advice:

    [size=20pt]DO NOT BUY SHIT FROM ASIA!!![/size]

    Most everything is fake!

    Here is an example.
    I have a nice digital SLR camera.
    Well, I want a bigger memory card like 4GB.
    They are spendy.
    If you look at some of the auctions they are selling for cheap as hell.
    The US sellers sell them cheaper than the stores but not nearly as cheap as the Asian sellers.
    They are fake.

    Why is it then, that the AD jerseys on Vikings.com's store do not have the rounded edge?

    I have bought many items on ebay.
    But, I don't buy from any seller that is not in the continental U.S.

    Ebay has a system in place to prevent this, the feedback system.
    Check out the seller's feedback rating, percentage and briefly the comments.
    The higher the rating the more sales they have done (hence more trustful) and the higher the percentage the percentage that have been good.

    That's not necssarrily true, but true in general.

    1. You do not get credit for repeat buyers. My feedback rating is 839, yet I received 100% feedback from 1177 people.

    2. Peoples seller ID's are hijacked all the time & they use that sellers good feedback to fuck you over.

    3. If the seller uses e-mail links in his auction (which is against eBay policy) that's a good indication of Buyer Beware!
