caveat emptor on eBay

I am often amazed at the mistakes I find on eBay. Today, I found this postcard up for bid on eBay. The seller claims that the postcard depicts "Red Sox Icon Ted Williams."

For starters, the guy is wearing a Brooklyn Dodgers cap not a Boston Red Sox cap. And although the guy has a slight resemblance to Ted Williams, anyone familiar with Ted's image knows that this guy is not Ted. And anyone familiar with 20th Century baseball stars would recognize the guy as the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodger's pitching sensation Sandy Koufax.

So, if you use eBay, don't count on the seller to know what he or she is selling. Do your homework before you bid on an item.
