Brian Irving bigbamboom...drums Ripped me off with a replica collectable item described as being authentic. Whittier California
In the latter part of March, 2013 I responded to an ad on Ebay for a vintage "Shelby Cobra Racing Team Shirt." The sellers name is Brian Irving. I responded to the ad and based on the sellers description I negotiated a price of $750.00 payable in installments. I am an avid collector of authentic Shelby American items and a seller and buyer of Shelby items as well. The seller is also in the business of buying and selling race related items as well. The seller's description of the item was: " This cool Shelby Cobra shirt is totally authentic and came from the collection of a most famous and well regarded West Coast sports car racing photographer. Someone who was ther at the time, virtually part of the history itself. The shirt is in mint, unworn condition- this photographer was given dozens and dozens of authentic team shirts and jackets from Cobra,Chaparral, etc,etc-most of them he just threw in a box for storage. The shirt is totally clean and unmarked. Notice the heavy, thick embroidery work on the Cobra logo on the back. After keeping the shirt for a while, I listed it for sale on Ebay in July of this year. After doing so, I was contacted by several members of SAAC ( Shelby American Automobile Club). They are the experts on all Shelby automobiles and memorabilia. They forewared to me pages of information on this item and descriptions of what authentic shirts are really made of. They made me aware that the shirt is a reproduction and I took it off the market. I contacted Brian Irving and sent him copies of what I received from the folks at SAAC. His response was- no refund. It seems to me that if a person is selling this kind of collectable item that he should be sure of what he is selling. There is no room for bogus items and carless sellers in this kind of collecting. Alot of transactions in this business are done on trusting the seller is indeed selling what he describes. This seller abviously does not have the necessary integregrity needed in this business. He now needs to be accountable to me and realized he screwed up. I have never had anything like this happen to me, selling and buying online.
