Title: Buckethead item eBay scams?
Post by: Bucketdog on October 13, 2010, 07:57:13 pm
    I call bull-shit on these 2 items... Any opinions?

Possibly fake - (correct link) KFC skin piles autograph

http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewitem?itemId=110595735152&index=2&nav=SEARCH&nid=00063069209

And WTF, buy it now $200.00 unsigned? -

First link the listing was removed.

Second link is a listing by zosod. He buys Buckethead stuff and charges three times as much for it, and has been at it for years.

The first listing you posted is this one correct?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BUCKETHEAD-KFC-SKINPILES-VERY-RARE-AUTOGRAPHED-LP-/110595735152?pt=Music_Other_Formats&hash=item19c004fe70

If so, I have transacted with that seller, on and off Ebay, and he is a genuine and a very trusty bot who others can vouch for as well. See these threads from TK:

the first link is here:

http://cgi.ebay.com/BUCKETHEAD-KFC-SKINPILES-VERY-RARE-AUTOGRAPHED-LP-/110595735152?pt=Music_Other_Formats&hash=item19c004fe70

and considering that guy has sold his entire buckethead collection over the past few months. i don\'t think its fake...

except i\'ve seen that same exact listing before from the same seller......

^I\'m not 100% but I think that may of just been relistings and/or altered/reduced asking prices...

Why do you think these are "fake"?

Just the bogus appearance of the autograph?

I\'ve never really scrutinized over them, but it looks fine to me, the picture of it looks strange, it looks like it was photoshopped on there or something. But it certainly doesn\'t scream fake to me.

Also, perhaps the sig is slightly different on the LE\'s where he is writing 500 of them over a short time, vs. as it was when he used to hang out with fans after shows and sign stuff... ???

None of littlebobito\'s listings are fake. They are all genuine items from his massive personal collection, and he\'s a great guy to deal with as I\'ve bought several rare items from him myself.

That particular listing for Skin Piles has been relisted several times now because it hasn\'t sold.

True. I think the reason it hasn\'t sold is because his initial prices were pretty steep. (I think when it was first listed he wanted $299?). It\'s at a fairly reasonable price right now...Since it has the autograph.

Agreed! Littlebobito is legit, I recently purchased ISOT LE #189 from him. Great person to deal with!  ;D
