check out this auction:
Yoda 41 back Brown Snake (http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-MOC-ESB-Yoda-41-back-rare-brown-snake-version_W0QQitemZ110008151715QQihZ001QQcategoryZ50 274QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem)

then heres the auction for what seems to be the exact same figure, that the seller won earlier:

Yoda 41 back Brown Snake (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=50274&item=190004322838)
Only difference is the newest auction's figure looks to have a price sticker over the same spot where the earlier auction's figure had sticker removal damage.

HMMMMM ....MAGIC!! How does this seller maintain such perfect feedback, and why would they risk it?

Definitely suspect - nice sluething!

Actually I thought the price was really good, too good actually, so I just checked their feedback, its the first one at the top of the list...

Although it's buried in the description, he does mention card damage under the price tag. It is still shady of him to do that little trick. He doesn't cover his tracks too well either if he just got feedback on the figure.

How clever!

The seller changed the description between the original post and yours -- no doubt to add that disclaimer since he'd already been busted.

This is why I'm very careful when I buy carded figures. I'm always suspecting something like this from the seller no matter how high his feedback is - especially if I think it's a good deal.

Thats why no matter what figure it was i would never buy one with a price sticker on it, not even if it had been graded as you never know after a while the glue could just become dry and fall of and there might be a nice rip underneath it
