how are sellers getting away with selling all of these miniature millhouse tobacco cards all over ebay? its always the same 2 or 3 sellers offering them for sale, and they use the same 3 or 4 pics of each athlete and just created more and more variations of the cards. plus they sell cards for just about every entertainer/singer/tv star you can think of as well. these are all clear copyright and trademark infringements.

Trouble is, no one goes after them. They find people to buy them and keep selling...

"Millhouse Tobacco" cards are produced by a scam artist named James Leavitt of Gilbert, AZ. He runs scams under the alias "ROBERT WYLAR"

I wonder if artist Ron Lewis and all other sports artists are concerned that James Leavitt is stealing their images and putting them on his fraudulent "Millhouse Tobacco" cards. Here's a cool Nolan Ryan with the artwork of Ron Lewis.

The one in the middle on the top is a stolen Ron Lewis image. This is one of HUNDREDS of examples.

Wonder how Upper Deck feels that James Leavitt AKA Robert Wyler AKA Millhouse Tobacco has stolen the design of the 1988 Fleer Basketball to use on his 700+ card set? I don't like being stolen from........I assume that Upper Deck doesn't like it either.

Put this next to a 1988 Fleer Jordan Card and compare:

PostPosted: Tue Jul 15, 2014 8:38 am    Post subject: FRAUD ALERT Reply with quote

Just confirmed........INTERNATIONAL MINUTE PRESS of Chandler, AZ (480-963-1616) is the printing company responsible for producing most or all of James Leavitt's fraudulent items. MILLHOUSE TOBACCO cards along with phony Olympic items have been verified to have been produced at the IMP Chandler for James Leavitt AKA Robert Wyler. This fraud appears to still be going strong at the time of this posting.
