Its not like EVERY patch card is fake

Still has a valid Kobe auto which is way better than any piece of cardboard that looks like every other one in the print line.

Just some people choose to ruin great cards

wow, this makes me nuts

my question is lets say i would have bought this card ,wouldnt i know right away that it had been tampered with ,or are these guys this good

i have a big mix of cards pulled myself and purchased mostly on ebay
how can i know if i have been screwed on cards i havent pulled myself
because if you dont realize that you had seen this card with out a patch in it nobody would know that they faked this card

nice catch by the way

You probably don't need to go through a different company, I'll bet Beckett will slab that sucker right back up without even batting an eye.

Such a shame, those are nice cards, and this is not the first time I've seen cards from that set tampered with. I've seen it with the Durants, Kobe, & Lebron before as well.

Someone should totally send that to beckett... wouldn't be surprized if it came back with a better grade! :P

F'ing disgusting practice though. I really wish these people would get caught and punished cruelly.

Whoever faked that did a good job. Would they have had to slice that card in half to insert those patches? I don't see any major damage to the foil cut-out window.

Some base cards sell good because of a few super shilled sales in the beginning that others fell for thinking the cards were actually worth those prices and they continued to pay those prices of them lol.
