I thought you were exaggerating, but no, that's pretty damn bad.

So I can't tell if this card is faked or not

I can't see why they'd make that card and put the new shield in it, especially since I've seen inception shields with the old logo in there from 2012 I think.

But why would you fake a shield card just to put in the new shield?

I'm so confused

Uhhhh....so I'm guessing this was tampered with? All the ones I've seen looked like this: 2012 Topps Inception Mohamed Sanu NFL Logo Patch Serial 1 1 Nice | eBay

Wouldn't it make sense for a scammer to take the real shield out of a lower value card and replace it with the newer less appealing shield? Then they would take the original shield and put that in a higher valued card that would have a broader appeal?

I have no idea...but then again I can't wrap my head around why many people do the things you do...especially the unscrupulous people.

We'll have to deal with these shields until Nike stops making the jerseys

It's real. The card was produced before Topps knew about the logo design change. It was designed for the old Reebok shields. Topps didn't have the time to redesign/print new cards before release

People are way too damned paranoid.

not paranoid when all of the other shields to come out of 2012 Inception have been the old kind, and then this one pops up with the new shield in an old shield cut out

...I'm sure Topps exhausted their stock of old Reebok jerseys and used new ones as well.

It's not like they don't half-ass everything else they do

This shield is off a fake jersey too. Doubly crappy.

I don't think it's wrong to be paranoid, but I agree that this is probably a real patch because of the reasons stated above

I think he was a redemption so it would stand to reason they may have had him wear different newer jerseys than the other guys that were live. I think it is real.

If I was someone in charge at Topps I would have made an announcement explaining this card- but no they would prefer half of us to think it's fake.

This. I'm waiting on 3 redemptions of him...if the Reebok license expired before he wore/signed, they probably had to have him throw on the new Nike jerseys, hence that shield...

I think its real also. It just doesn't make sense to take the time and effort to make the card worse...Especially since he is a redemption he probably doesn't have many if any Reebok jerseys he "wore"
