Default FAKE Calvin SPA Gold on Ebay

So so sad. This hobby frightens me beyond belief sometimes.

I don't know what's worse:

1. That UD put a 1 color piece in a RPA /25

OR.

2. That this idiot faked a patch on a RPA /25

I agree one colors in a /25 are terrible. I can't say for sure that he faked it. He may have been duped too. I don't want to accuse him personally, just know the card isn't legit. His Ebay ID looks familiar

I am pretty sure this late in the game the seller will end up being a victim on that card. That card turned whore awhile ago

The change in jerseys over the years with color and all makes it fairly easy. Better when you have a one color reference to go to though

that looks fake being horizontal anyway...all that year were vertical I believe, last one I think brought 900 or something so the price is definitely a indicator of iffiness by the owner trying to move it fast

I really think they are a member on here. That name rings a bell for some reason.

I have a 1 color gold too. I paid $500 for mine. The price is insanely low for a 4 color

Anyone care to write this person? Have a feeling they may not know its fake if the last evidence of it being a single color was back in 08

yeah he said he got like 3 messages and wished we were around 4 months ago. Poor guy

Dear wheeler281,

you are the third person in two days to tell me this. i checked on your website and see that you are correct. i honestly didn't know. i bought about 6 months ago for $800 .. my only question is this: I have had this listed for over 4 months now and haven't heard a word about it. Now, in two days time, three people have informed me that the card has been tampered with. I'm curious as to why now instead of months ago. I could have attempted to get my money back .. anyway, thanks for the heads up. i hate these #@#@#@#@#@#@#@s that tamper with cards. they spoil the fun.

Don't ever get into militaria then. Cards are pattycake compared to the fakes in that field.

I believe that. People want to believe they are buying a piece of history. And there are plenty of people that are willing to fake it for them.
