Default Ivanko Competition Plates

I have a chance (Maybe, the listing is quite old, I need to check craigslist more often) to get 175# of Ivanko Olympic Competition plates for $100, don't exactly know what shape they are in but does anyone have anything bad to say about Ivanko plates, seems like a good deal whether they show some wear or not.

It's 2x 45#, 2x 25#, 2x 10#, 2x 5#, 2x 2.5# plates

Are they OLY or PL plates? If they are OLY plates that is a good deal.

I watch craigslist all the time. Almost every plate listed says Olympic when what they are referring to is the size of the hole not the type of plate. Like Joe said if they are Ivanko Bumpers that is a super deal. Most of the time you can get plates for .30 to .50 cents per pound depending on condition.

Let us know what you get.

If they're legitimate Ivanko bumpers, that's a great deal. But since the seller described them as "competition plates" and listed them in lbs, it makes me suspect they're not.
