Exceptional price, but also one of the nicest copies I've seen in years. Its almost shop fresh. Looks nicer than the one my dad bought for me when it was released!

You'll never regret paying top dollar for the genuinely high grades of anything.

It'll be interesting to see what these two go for:

My mate Steve told me someone is selling a Victor Summer Special 1983 as Phil-comics and they have even cut and pasted Phil's description.

Your mate Steve is quicker than me! I just spotted it 10 minutes ago.

I've told Phil and he just laughs as there's not a lot he can do. I must admit that personally, it immediately makes me suspicious of a seller and I wouldn't buy from them.

He has a few of them up with phil-comics on now

I'm the same. Who knows how far their duplicity extends.

Actually there also is another reason for this - if someone goes to list an item and looks up one that is already listed or has already sold and clicks on 'sell similar item' eBay will pre-fill in the title using the previously listed one.

Its actually a design feature.

Its happened to me a number of times whereby I suddenly recognize a new listing using my exact wording.

Also if Phil complains, he's stirring up more trouble than its worth, mainly because what he's doing isn't actually allowed by eBay - keyword spamming (albeit with his own username)
