Default eBay seller selling mysterious superfractors with no stamp - back doored?

Guy is from texas and topps has a printer in texas, right?

Boomo and I opened 94 cases of 2012 Bowman Draft between us and pulled 2 base superfractors - there should've been 5 and an autoed one.

This is platinum:

Seems odd. Their printing facility is really close to my house. I've always wondered what could be found in the trash there. Maybe these were pulled from the trash.

That is very weird. I don't think I would trust an un=serial #'d refractor/superfractor etc, especially a high end one unless it could somehow be authenticated.

I remember reading a thread on here a few months back (football section maybe?)
where a fellow was printing "custom" superfractors for himself.

Mind you, not just designing them in photoshop, but printing them.
They looked good.

And if one person can do it, so can another

You can know if these are customs by finding the real cards.

These look like they were stolen from the printer to me.

Definite, definite backdoor job (from the factory). Couldn't be more obvious. Of course topps will just blow it over and say "we're looking in to it", or say nothing at all.

The mere fact he is explaining why he has a new account set up for selling 'these' cards, to me is another RED FLAG as perhaps he has had another account closed due to prior issues/complaints!

So you mean it's not tax purposes

Maybe they are just error cards.

I had gotten two cards this year I posted about in another thread and had emailed Topps about it. They replied and said they were error cards.

Now trying to get Beckett to list them as errors in their price guide and on their website since Topps did confirm they were errors.

I wanted to ask about the following cards and what happened with them and
what exactly they are.

These seem to be the red refractor versions but are not serial numbered.



Any help would be appreciated.



Thanks
