Ok guys just wanting a little help, Im looking at a Nolan ryan rookie psa8 rookie card on ebay that im wanting to add to my collection, however, I know there has been some fakes, and will always be fakes, it seems like psa is the worst company.. I told myself I would never buy any high graded rare rookie cards again because of the possibility of it being a fake.. Some of you may have seen the post I put on the basketball boards a couple of months ago about a sgc 1986 fleer Michael Jordan rookie card I bought.. Well it turned out to be fake and I am still working on getting my money back.. Anyways here is the link..

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281154621506?ssP...1423.l2649

this seller has no recent card purchases or buys so not really sure about it, just wanted to get some advice before I go buying something again this high in price vaule.. any help would be appreciated thanks
Go with with gut feeling.

Sometimes it's easier to regret something you didn't do then to regret something you did.
i wouldnt take the chance.

wouldn't I be able to get money back from ebay if it turns out to be fake>?
So now we have to worry about cards that are "professionally graded" being fake as well?

yes.. those are probably worse than not graded.. I wouldn't worry about bgs cases because they are more thick and harder to get into.. but lets just say be careful what you buy, if it sound to good to be true it is.. I bought a sgc graded Jordan mint 9 rookie and turned out to be fake.. defiantly fooled me..and like I said the guy on ebay hasn't had any transactions dealt with cards and randomly has a Nolan ryan graded 8 rookie.. would love to add this to my collection but just cannot risk it anymore as im out of 1100$ for right now.. but working on getting my money back. It sucks because I am only 20 years old, it took forever to save up that money and just to know that I should of just went out and rolled down my window and threw the money out..

heres a video I just watched cannot believe their are scumbags out here that would do this..
