Question What the....

08-09 UD BLACK MICHAEL JORDAN /15 LEBRON JAMES DUAL AUTO PATCH $1400 BOOK VALUE | eBay

For those wondering, those are not Lebron James and Michael Jordan's autographs.

Edit: It just sold for $1.4k. Who would have bought THAT!?

Yeah vision18 and this other dude is trying to sell that fake auto card, autos probably had smudges so they decided to wipe it with some alcohol and redo it themselves.

What a shady move, I hope no one thinks its a steal if someone does fall for it

If you're going to wipe off clean and redo the autographs of Michael Jordan & Lebron James, you could at least practice first. Does anyone have a pic of the original REAL card?

I stumbled upon this a week ago and checked the checklist if this card existed since the autographs were so off. Had no idea there are scumbags out there who can polish the autographs right off these cards.. wow.

Wow, nice work dude.

Makes me want to throw up. Card was great before, the wipe ruined it - if you're going to be a piece of #@#@#@#@ and try to do this kind of thing, at least TRY to do it "professionally"...

Why did they wipe the autographs off in the first place? The original one looks awesome.

Perhaps they got smudged a bit? If so, who cares. Leave them smudged. They are better smudged than fake!

Wow. We have now seen it all....

My guess is that the autos got smudged from being handled badly, so the owner tried to clean it and made it worse. UD Black autos need to be handled with care. I treat mines with white gloves lol

You can still see on the Lebron side where the old (real) auto used to be. Then on the Jordan side when they wiped off the auto part of the rainbow finish came off where the auto was and you can see that still. Don't they think the eventual winner will notice this???

Card is probably better off without the autos, I would wipe it clean and sell it as a quad patch card.

But on the back it states autographed versions. They should have put some crazy title like "1/1 NO AUTO ERROR PMG?!" lol.

Also someone should send the seller a link to this thread, seller is a freakin idiot

Made an offer of $1 with the following message: Since the autos are fake. You should at least practice a few times on plain paper so they will somewhat look real.

Offer was automatically declined. Oh well.

Someone make a free listing with the real picture and title the auction "Linsanity_17 is selling a fake UD Lebron Michael Jordan Auto" and explain everything in the description.

Hmm, so is this sale legit too?

Piping jersey patch /75 for $723?

05-06 UD ULTIMATE COLLECTION MICHAEL JORDAN /75 EXQUISITE JERSEY PATCH 3 CLR | eBay

Or what about the Jordan rave for $695?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/97-98-Skybox...#ht_500wt_1182


^^^They are both back up, now as auctions, and in BGS cases...


He also keyword spams "NO AUTO" and "NO EXQUISITE"

And is the guy selling his Lin Auto Patch from NT for $25,000 for many months now...


This looks shilled:

eBay.com Item Bid History


And he pulled the dual listing with this:

08-09 UD BLACK BOX AMARE STOUDEMIRE AUTO JERSEY 1/1 YAO MING LOGOMAN DUAL 1/1 | eBay


Listed with a super high buy-it-now and also double listed as an auction at the same time.





yikes!

Wow!!! Why in the world would they ruin the card in the first place? The autos looked awesome originally, and now the card is ruined. Things such as this are really starting to push me away from the hobby. Also, as mentioned before, the card was listed by Vision1818 but ended up selling by another eBayer. Pathetic.
