I just read a post about "why some people shouldn't buy or sell stuff they know nothing about". I have the opportunity to get something, but I don't know enough about it & this is the place for vintage hockey knowledge. Hopefully someone here can help out even if its not really vintage itself. This is the item in question:
It looks like a box of 51-52 "Parkie" reprint set (?). The seller linked the viper website as the original manufacturer and to quote their price to let me know what they wanted for it.
I'm interested in getting a reprint set of 51-52 Parkhurst & C55 because I can't afford the real deal and would still like to hold something in my hands. Sure, it'll be a little hollow, but even a poster of the Mona Lisa has that beautiful smile.
Frankly, I don't know what other reprint sets are out there, if this is a quality set or just a scam set with poorly scanned images. I only know enough to know that I don't know enough.
I'd appreciate any opinions on the matter or details on what I should know / look out for.
