Default Did I Overpay?

I paid $140 for this card and I was wondering if you guys think this is worth it. A 1996-97 Upper Deck Collectors Choice Buyback Auto of Kobe Bryant. I'm a huge Kobe fan so I went all out to win it. Thanks for your guys input.

With buybacks I would be suspicious if it were a fake. I've never seen a 96-97 CC buyback. Post a scan of it with the cert of authenticity.

It doesn't have a COA but it has a stamp on the front from ScoreBoard on it. He has a lot of other buybacks with the same stamp so I'm getting a little worried. If you go to completed listings on eBay you can find it there also. Thanks

bad news i think bud, those scoreboard stamps have been faked a lot i hope im wrong
but do some research i think the stamper was sold in a bankruptcy auction
and some piece of garbage has been putting out counterfeit cards ever since

Yikes, it's normally a rule of thumb to not touch Scoreboard items with a 10 foot pole.

Lots of fakes, lots of illegitimate items.

Hopefully yours is really! But paying $140 is severely overpaying for a Scoreboard Kobe auto.


But if it is real, and you like the card, then you paid just right!


You should link the auction so we can determine if you were misled in the auction?!

Look at the 150+ completely FAKE autographs this guy has sold/is selling.

And people are so concerned about cracking BGS cases and selling.

Focus your negative, witch hunting mentality on guys like this seller who is blatantly creating fake cards to rip people off and getting away with it!

(not directed at you murrke03)




OP, judging by this guy's other auctions ... you bought a fake.


Looks like this seller has a scoreboard embossing stamp in his possession and is quite the artist as well.


Rules of thumb:
-Don't buy a non-licensed autograph (UD, Panini, Topps, UDA, PSA, etc)
-NEVER buy a Scoreboard autograph
-Do not buy any questionable merchandise from the Philippines...

You overpaid because fakes are worth $1 on a good day.

No that is not it. Mine ended yesterday at $137.50 from a guy from Alabama. If I knew how to post the link I would but I'm using my phone and don't know how to.
