sets from Rick and resell them on eBay calling them " rare and hard to
find" and quadruple ones investment.
I'm in the wrong line of work I guess.

>From what I know, the SS valve covers are produced from original dies,

What you're seeing is eBay hype and buyers that don't know about Rick's
offerings. A similar thing happened a few years ago where an "original"
