To my knowledge that is not a UD hologram. And they've had the same holograms for years now so it most likely wasn't different back then.

Just ask for a close-up picture of the hologram and contact UD with the serial number on it. They are supposed to be able to tell you what the hologram is from. I agree with everyone else that it appears fake but if you are interested get the serial #.

I contacted him about the auction just to see where he got it from and any details about the card. I havn't heard back yet though.

I follow golf cards religiously and I would say that is a fake. The autograph doesn't look right and the fact that it's on a card that's already #/100 makes it even more suspect. The card itself is worth $60 unsigned so it looks like somebody ruined a perfectly good card.

If you are going to fake a card, go big or go home.....

Unfortunately that always seems to be the case. I guess that's their problem if they want to throw away money like that. HOWEVER, I believe there are enough uneducated buyers out there where the seller can get a decent chunk of change as long as the card isn't too out of the realm of reality. That's sad...

Why are all his listings/winning bidders private?

I love the close up of the "1/1".

i like how Craig''s continues to get all this bad media for bad people abusing the system, yet eBay continues to peddle fake stuff in the hundreds of thousands of dollars a year with NO repercussions.

If I recall, doesn't eBay flash a warning regarding the validity of an autograph whenever you list an item? I cannot recall what the warning is, but clearly it isn't enough to stop people from posting these...

Short of there being criminal repercussions, no warning popup is going to stop people from listing knockoffs.

The autograph is fake but the hologram is real. The hologram is the holograms used on the 2004 SP Authentic Baseball Buy Backs, They usually read like this AAA382942. As for how they are removed from a card and placed on another is actually pretty simple. They take a cheap buy back autograph soak the card in warm water with a little bit of dawn dishwashing liquid. The hologram will start to peel of by itself without damaging the hologram. They then take the hologram lay it face down allowing it to dry. when it drys the glue on the hologram becomes tacky again, they just place it on another card with a fake autograph. I wish I could find the article again that told this. I know that it said it was really bad in the Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Illonois, Wisconsin area and that there were alot of these cards appearing there. All of the Buy Backs are suppose to have a COA card with a matching hologram with the players name on it. The yearly baseball and football becketts list all the buybacks in them and states what years have what serial numbers for instance AAA369584 was one year BDC539345 was another each year and each sport is different. As for the Tiger Woods I am pretty sure the buy back was number to 3, besides that s the 5th or 6th one of those thats been listed not having the accompanying COA card. The warm water and dawn trick also works on any holographic sticker and has been used also on Helmets, Mini Helmets, Footballs, Basketballs, Jerseys, Bats, and Pucks. So honestly guys beware when buying anything thats not an on card auto certified by the card company. Thats why I only collect autographs I obtain in person or that is on card from a pack.
