with all-star patches being the same, i can easily see why there was a mistake.
I would've been under the impression that the hologram would've been attached to the uniform before it was bought by Topps otherwise that would be pretty shady creating the card and then submitting it to MLB for it be authenticated?

I do agree there should be some competition but I think the other competitor would have to be willing to take the game-used part of the hobby a step further in being less vague and somehow corroborate that this piece actually came from a jersey that was game-used.

Also, even when there was competition such as Fleer, Upper Deck, and Donruss around. I believe they were just as vague and I'm under the assumption that a little gentleman's agreement would've been in place with regards to using game-used. One company is not going to pay top dollar for an actual game-used jersey when they know another company was using less than authentic game-used jerseys.

Yeah, especially with the card being a 1/1. That just exacerbated the problem for me.

Just an F.Y.I. there was a thread earlier in the year when Triple Threads dropped. There are a number of these with the incorrect patches in the booklet for the said player. This is not an isolated card. I don't recall what the thread name was but it does exist. Let me see if I can look it up.

First I've heard of this but unfortunately doesn't surprise me.
Don't forget the 90-91 UD French Hockey fiasco. UD only made like 100 cases of the french only version and they skyrocketed, I think the French Fedorov RC was selling at $500, of course UD sees the crazy prices boxes and singles were selling for and decided to re-start the presses and make a whole bunch more and flood the market.
Those French Fedorov RC's sell for maybe $2-$5 now.

I'm still mystified they are still in business, even if you only take into account the stuff they have been caught for and which has been proven, which is likely to be only a small % of the true total of their shady dealings.
