I agree with alpingloin about how easy those bookplates look to be duplicated. With the instant price jump the original books saw, it is going to be very easy for others to try to capitalize for a quick dishonest buck.

I hadn't noticed the Yeltsin and Vonnegut bookplates last time I looked through his auctions. It seems unbelievable that eBay doesn't do something about sellers like this...

He's also well-stocked on Vonnegut bookplates, timely once again.

Incredible how such people get away with it!

To make it even more laughable, his auction for the 'Boris Yeltsin' bookplates says that Yeltsin passed away on "July 23, 2007."

To make it even more shameful, though, the item actually has a bid.

If you look at the seller's other items, he also has 'Boris Yeltsin' Signed Bookplates. How timely!!! I wish Ebay would be speedier to remove items which have been reported. At least suspend the listings until they are investigated... It is such a shame how people continue to be taken in by these fakes.

Sadly, it now appears that two of the fake bookplates have sold on EBay and the item has not been de-listed.
