You mean uppderdeck would actually do something? Don't call them, then I will NEVER see my spa replacements. Gives them more excuses NOT to close my case and ship the cards.

Good work guys.
I got a box of Sage Hit 3 years ago from bigboydsportscards to didn't have all the Auto's. I got on him about it and he said wouldn't do anything then was told problems with drop shippers. Well I sent everything to Sage and was promised a couple Auto's and even one I wanted at the time. Sage never called me back or sent my Auto's after I spent another $6 or $7 mailing it to them priority mail with DC. I got screwed twice on one box so I haven't bought anymore Sage boxes just singles. I've been thinking about buying some from BO but the way Sage did still pisses me off. I also just bought some Press Pass Auto's from cardboardpimping lastnight off ebay. I sure hope they aren't fake they looked fine to me and he had 100% positive is the reason I bought from him. I wouldn't have if I'd saw this in time.

I don't understand how they've been on ebay 3 years and have 100% positive feedback if they are selling alot of fake Auto's. I'd think something is wrong somewhere maybe ebay lets it go because they get all those fees. Fees screwed up my buying boxes owed ebay so much this month. I've also wondered with all the replacements and these sticker auto's if companies don't just slap them on regular cards and send them out as replacements at times. I've seen alot of Auto's that look fake and a few that look ok.

I was going to blame products like Topps Signature Basketball for flooding the market w/ cheap autographs and making it easy to get ahold of authentic Topps autograph stickers, but after looking at some of my personal cards I guess they could have gotten that style of sticker from all sorts of recent and older Topps products. Wow...

I just reported the Matt Ryan auto, I suggest you all do the same. Scroll to the bottom and hit report this item.

Edit: Looking at again, it does look a bit faded behind the sticker. Do you have a better picture of the AP?

it definitely fades near the point of the ball. none of the players i've seen have a completely solid white area.

for example:

Here's a list of people who have been doing this:

elkridgesportscards, t.wall, cardboardgems1, cardcontractor, onlytherare, unknownquarterback7, borninouterspace , bigboydsportscards3, dmarcus8, exquisite-baybuys,supercollectibles77, jns518, papakon51, xxbadabing, modernbreaks, little_victories, cccupps420, jmvariety09, cardboardpimping, eightieschick505, finestcard519.

I see several names on this list that I tend to see on about every negative ebay thread...and they are on the lists for good reasons from what I can conclude....its sad that after all the evidence found against these people they still have hundreds and thousands of cards selling at any given time.

Need a better scan of the AP. There should be a slight border break above and below the sticker area. If there isn't one, it's fake.

funny how 2 from this list bbsc & cbp have been on more and more current threads about scams, shills, fakes, etc, but every freaking thread gets deleted so people keep buying from them, and they keep pumping out bad cards into the market whether they are reselling from someone else. google is great to do searches on the names but if threads get deleted then they don't show up in searches.

I'd love to know what happened to the last bbsc shilling thread that luck15shop made. I know it turned into a pissing match between luck and the seller in question.

Sorry Russell, but I'm pretty sure your card is fake, as others have said before. There is no faded/window area behind the auto, leading me to believe that it was just a base AP ref that they put a sticker on. Sorry man

Gellman is definitely a good source to find out about fakes. He's a huge AP collector and has seen a ton on Ebay. Along with those articles, he's got a good post about fake patches called SCU Scam School.

SCU Scam School

If you're anti-Panini you'll probably like most of his rants against them.

Nope, that one is real. Fakes are very obvious, and the pen, signature and other factors like slant and pen pressure indicate it is real - on the auto. Not sure if it was meant to be a Peterson signature card, but the auto itself is real.

Sometimes the faded window doesnt come through well on the scans. This would be the first time I have been fooled if its fake.

Yeah, the auto didn't look bad to me (although admittedly I do not study AP's auto like yours), but I was just basing my opinion off of the lack of "window" on the card. Maybe a better scan would prove it more definitely. Also the fact that he bought it from one of these sellers makes me instantly skeptical (but not a definite that it's fake).
