Default 1962 Canadian Post short prints ?authenticity on eBay

I collect 1962 Canadian Post cards. As any collector that dabbles with these knows, A Mantle, Aaron and Clemente aren't the gems, but rather it is the short prints. The names like Sherry, Tasby, Amalfitano and Simmons are some of the toughest cards to find. I constantly look for them and its not uncommon for an entire year to pass without seeing some of these cards on eBay. In the last three weeks 2-3 of seemingly every short print has shown up on eBay including a whole slew of of them that were sold for $10-15 on buy it nows. The sellers have great feedback, but i am getting concerned about reprints. I have been looking at the backs of the cards and none of the short prints have the waxy or glue stains that are often seen on the Post cards. Am I being paranoid, or is something going on that isn't good? Any thoughts from other Canadian Post collectors.

I just looked through the sold section and some of those are unreasonably inexpensive. The Kaline sold for about 25 bucks on a buy it now. Many of those cards are cut very similar. If those cards are legit some people did very well on them. Its so hard to find clean cut cards from the post sets.I am far from an expert on 62 Post Canadian Baseball but I have my doubts.

Default 62 Post Baseball

I also collect 62 Post Canadian and I am concerned about the same. The short prints are extremely tough. For 2-3 of each to show up at ridiculously low prices seems very odd.

The guy who sold some of those cards at the ridiculously low buy it now prices was breaking up a complete set. It was around card 90 or so when he realized he was screwing up, stopped the buy it now sale and pulled everything down. He relisted everything he had left a few days later as an auction style listing. Some of the stuff sold at outrageous prices.
I was lucky enough to buy it now some of those items. I give the guy credit, he honored his sales. I doubt anything he sold was fake, as he was breaking up a complete set.
I too am surprised at how much great stuff has shown up lately. I know for most of the year, nothing had shown up. I have been able to buy a few other things, everything seems real. One thing also, it has been many different sellers listing things, not just one. But it is strange.
