Default hype or reality?

Hey Doc,
Ebay link shows someone selling 'FAFNIR made Exclusively for SNYDER - VERY Rare Vintage 8 Ball BEARINGS 37K5'.

Is this someone hyping their auction with the special Snyder notation, or is there such a thing? Is there markings on the bearings a such (which are not shown)? I'm skeptical.

Default Good discussion.......

......but the question could have been answered even before asking - why not show a pic like Doc and gotsk8s did in their auction? Yeah, I could have sent a request for a pic, but but but (insert confounded Aflac duck for visual).

Seems like such a simple thing to do.
