WTF is going on here? See how these people are all intertwined?

The Description for the kane-and-romita lot states:  "1967 RARE Topps Wacky Packages Original DIE CUT. You get the exact card shown in the photos. Thus cars is a beauty !!!"    Probably a hold over from some copy and pasting, but adds to the confusion even more.

Interesting how it's a one of a kind piece of art, but there are two listings for it.  Maybe one of them intends to win the other auction and then sell it for more?

One of the sellers must been texting, as he says "Thus cars is a beauty !!!"

They're both Matt Stock.  I guess it's a way to keep the BIN available while bidding is underway.

I tend to think it's just carelessness in the listings.

Could be.  He's got a lot of items to keep track of.

It is not a BIN it is up for auction with a 149.99 starting bid. think that $51 one would disappear is someone bid on the 149 one?

Carelessness in the listing??? do you really think that? and not something a little more malicious?

Look at that sketch, how can that be confused with anything other than what it is?

I agree.  We've all seen careless listings where the description doesn't match the photo, but these are exactly the same, and it's a one of a kind item.  Notice Joe's signature on the back how the J cuts through the O in TOPPS and the m cuts between the s and the .c in TOPPS.COM on both of them.  It's the same photo used for each one.

I guess it's all moot now since the lower-priced auction went down to $24.99 and now has been ended because there was an error in the listing.  Maybe they're reading the forum?  Conspiracy theories?

With the ending of the lower listing, just tells me Matt has come up with another way to cheat the bidders and CHEAT the system. Any of you can like and buy from this guy, but in my BOOK is a CROOK. straight up and down! He should be run out of business, instead he's supported. Wake up people.
