Default Real or fake? Yankees patch card

Really like this card but for some reason it just seems too good to be true, it's extremely hard to find Yankee patches like these. i will let you guys be the judge!

While it screams fake, this is one of those situations where it's too hard to tell. I'm sure it would be hard to fake patches in those small windows.

Trying to find that exact card for you... not always possible.

Found it!

Now it is time for a callout video... (with full credit to the OP)

EDIT: The slight variations in color are just differences in camera/scanner. That is the exact same card.

Weird, it says access to the webpage is denied when I try to open it, that sucks.

Anyways OP, I'm sure whatever Houdini posted is correct and should answer your question, he's the law around here for them fakers

I'm guessing he bought that monstrosity. Most of his other cards look good with only a few that I wonder about. Nothing anywhere near as blatant as this though.

The seller has a lot of "too good to be true" Arod patches.

Nice catch Houdini.

Additionally, the yankee hat logo is only something you'd see if it was from an all star jersey. I cannot recall them EVER using it on their actual uni's, and this has been stated by numerous Yanks fans as well.

it's actually always easy to tell... the yankees NEVER wear their top hat logo on their uniform. 30+ years being a yankee fan from the bronx, i can't remember ever seeing it. so unless it's some all-star/exhibition type deal, it's fake.

EDIT: beat me to it while i was typing metdude!
