Default Fake Crosby Patch/Auto

Perusing for patches and came across this one. Didn't think much about it until I viewed the close up of the patch. The scrape marks on the top edge make me feel that the original was taking out and this is a new one. Would I be mistaken or over analyzing?

I wish sport card companies when they make cards they have a site with the number and the card design so people can look it up before buying it would cut down on the falsifying the patch auto's

The seller has 4,876 feedback with never a neutral or a negative. I believe it is real with wear around the patch opening. This opinion is less than you can take to the bank.

If it is a fake, the seller did not do it as he bought it that way.

Good find, cardsrus, and I don't see why it's fake, just a small ding like earlier suggested, but if there's something I'm missing...

I don't blame you, though. Unfortunately there are a handful of people that are doctoring cards (and much more these days), to the point where we sometimes are overcautious. Who would've believed that the card company's COA is no longer enough proof?

If people fakes patches they make 'em sick patches. (Which is interesting because that all but makes it obvious to experienced collectors that they are fake). I agree, even if this patch was fake, not worth it for the patch that's there now.
