Anyone ever get touched up autos off eBay before?
Anyone ever buy an item off eBay and notice when they get it in the mail that the autograph looks touched up? I'm sure it happens a good bit, but I haven't heard of it happening for a very long time... Here's what happened today:
I bought a few cards I didn't have in my collection off someone last week. I paid after I got my paycheck and got the package today. First off, the card I got in the mail wasn't the card that is pictured on the auction. I don't like stock photos for this very reason- you can't see what you are actually paying for. The seller had a few of this same card and they all had different pics posted maybe they got them mixed up, not sure why I got this monstrosity..
This is a base 2010 Bowman Jason Heyward auto RC, and there are serious issues with the capital "J" and "H". Either the sharpie he was signing with was pooling ink real bad or someone had an auto that was faded or smeared and tried to touch it up. I'm getting a picture now and uploading to my bucket so I can show what I mean. I have a Blue Refractor of the same card and the auto looks nothing like this.
There are 3 spots where the ink is wider than the rest of the signature and much darker.
Anyone else get stuff like this from eBay before or hear about something similar??
Ah my cybershot camera has dead batteries have to wait a while to charge it, I will post pictures when able. I have 3 cards like this and only one looks like this.
