Perhaps it is a clever money laundering operation? ;)

Otherwise I cant see why anyone would pay so much for such a poorly printed piece. I think i cut better screens in my high school graphics class.

If you thought the Champion fakes were only Blue Bars on ringer tees....think again. Nice touch on fraying them too....

And all of this coming from a guy who typically deals genuine stuff and is in the business. Sad.

Seems like a lot of work creating these fakes just to list them for $60.00 but I guess if you get good at making them it becomes a volume thing.

Sell 16 of them at $60.00 and bam! You just made a $1,000.00.

Yup - and he was getting $100-300 quite regularly - probably scoops them up for $15 each.

This might be a naive question, but can his listings be reported (even the ones that say "repro") if the tags themselves still say "Made in the USA"? He says that he only ships to the US, aren't there laws about misrepresenting a country of origin?

Lots of reasons to report it....mostly mis rep. and intellectual rights...counterfeit...none of which ebay takes seriously unless its harley or champion who engage in their vero system.
