Default The Cup Malkin rookie 44/71, OK this is getting ridiculous x2...

Hey, me again. Yet another Malkin just listed tonight that has issues:

ebaygomaz's The Cup Malkin 44/71

ebay listing The Cup Malkin 44/71

Check this out. The guy actually says: "THERE IS SOME MINOR SURFACE WEAR AROUND THE PATCH" in the description. Do you think so? I wonder if that has anything to do with it being repatched!!! I mean really guys, unless you see the card pulled yourself (or it's a single color patch), these Cup cards are likely not authentic patches... I can't actually believe how many have been altered now that I started looking into this (over just the past week mind you!).

I hope these postings are useful for someone out there. At the very least, I want everyone to be aware of what is going on with these cards. I check for new Cup cards every day so it's unlikely someone is going to sneak one by me. I am filing every instance of fake card/repatch I find for my own records and will be bringing this up with UD in the future. I don't expect them to say much, but I think the more they hear about this sort of thing going on the more likely they will be to do something about it.

Cpatain, you talking about The Fake Patch Report website?

Welcome to Fake Patch Report

Edit: I dont see a bucket anywhere, so probably not.

Yeah, I knew about them. But they're not keeping track of fake cards too well. I mean, I started looking a week ago and I have more than what they have... the whole trick is to get a picture of the card before it gets repatched, otherwise there's no way to know that it's been changed.

I agree, but it will show you what style of cards are being re-patched and they also have a forum where you can submit and possible fake. I know what your looking for, but thats going to be really hard to find someone to keep up with it. It's time consuming and I don't think anyone pays yet to track fake patches. At least pay well enough.

I'm not worried about anyone paying. I was actually going to bid on some of these cards and thought I'd look into their authenticity because I has heard of people doing this sort of thing. Now I think I'm on to something. I actually have every single listing (except maybe one here or there that ended before I caught it) saved from ebay of the /99 ARPs and some of the /249 ARPs. I just checked and I'm almost at 500. I have yet to post them like ebaygomaz, but I do plan on doing it sometime this month. It's a good idea to have and really takes no time to save a photo here and there. I run an extensive ebay search for Cup cards 5+ times a day because I'm looking for certain ones so that's no extra effort.

I just made an offer of 9.99 and it was declined. I love how the threads are coming out of the die-cut.

I see the auction has ended early "because the item was lost or broken". I was thinking about a making a best offer of 9.99 as well.

Hey guys, I emailed him thru ebay and asked where he got the card. Said he bought it off ebay for $800 "last year". Then it disappears.......

I just put in a best offer of 9.99 for this one: Repatched Malkin 57/71. He might start wondering what's going on with only 2 best offers, both for 9.99.

I might make a slightly higher offer, but I think I will ask if I have have the original patch as well.
