I don't understand this guy. He risks his business to sell a few cards. Why not just label them correctly. Someone will buy them. Not everyone is looking for great condition. Of course, he wouldn't be making as much money. You would think that maybe if he represented the cards correctly the collectors that collect that grade would buy his lesser condition stuff.

I stand by my original statement. Battlefield is a reprobate. He should be put out of business and run out of town. He is no better than the Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons.

Seller just ran a '56T Koufax PSA 7 that closed yesterday at $310 w/ 31 bids. No back pic. Trying to upgrade my 6 and was tempted to bid. But, thanks to alarms raised in this thread, decided to pass.

I think the graded cards are OK. The issue with battlefield has always been, and will always be the ungraded stuff.

At least if the cards are graded by a reputable company there (probably) won't be the Photoshop escapades shown in this thread. That being said, with 937 true auctions I will venture to guess ebay might be slow to say anything....**according to the listings 933 are raw and 3 are graded (that deserves a "Yikes")....I guess 1 is unidentified or ended in the past seconds ....

I don't think he is photoshopping his cards. I think he is using stock photos from ebay. When you list on ebay, ebay always asks if you want to use stock photos from current listings. I pretended that I was going to sell a 1933 Goudey #81 and I used the stock photo. The photo that came up was the exact card that he is selling. This way, he doesn't have to scan any of his cards. That is why his scans are small and they can't be zoomed. That is also why he doesn't show back scans.

I bought a 33 Goudey from him that looked like a nice card in the listing, but when I received the card, the top third of the card was completely missing. When I contacted him about it, he insisted that I had received the card that was shown in the listing.

Check this thread, Rick.

http://www.net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=185850

You'll see many photos used by this seller, and then the actual card received by the high bidder. The centering on those cards matches perfectly, and you can clearly see how the seller manipulates the scan with a photoshop-type program.

Also, I bought a Gretzky RC from Battlefield a few years back before I knew about their practices. When I received the card I noticed a lot more wear on the upper right corner than what appeared in Battlefield0516's scan on eBay. I dug deeper and found the same card had sold months before on eBay. You can clearly see the wear on the original scan, but on Battlefield0516's scan the upper corner shows no white cardboard stock.

Thank god. I almost made the mistake of bidding on some raw cards last night they looked great and they were real cheap as they got closer to the finish line I actually looked at the seller and nonetheless it was battlefield. I sent him/her a message and cussed him/her out.

He is definitely photo-shopping cards. Somehow he uses a blue screen and takes out the worst parts of the cards, especially all creases. Here's a link that shows a card I bought from him. Can't see the two creases and there is way more chipping on the edges than the pic in the listing.

Right and photo shopping cards is probably one of the easiest things to do.

I was watching a card from seller drahluck today, and it appeared as if their listings are very similar to Battlefield0516 (similar text in the titles, raw cards photographed against blue backgrounds, no back scans, etc.). This could be another side account for Carol aka Battlefield0516.

Completed auctions for drahluck:

I guess the one big difference is Battlefield0516 accepts returns because they know they're pulling shady shit, but drahluck states "all sales final", so maybe I'm jumpin the gun.
