Some People Are Dumber Than A Bag Of Idiots



Check this auction out, brought to my attention by the guys over on FCB. Its basically a very similar situation to the fake Pujols card that I posted on earlier, only this time, the seller just re-signed the card in a different colored ink.




Though a huge checklist disappointment, last year's Mayo was one of two 2008 Topps football sets to feature on card autos. This year, they switched to the usual ugly ass stickers, and at the same time, allowed stuff like this to run rampant.

Like the Pujols, the guy took his cheaper LeSean McCoy blue auto that wasnt numbered, wiped off the auto with rubbing alcohol, and re-signed the card with red ink to signify a card numbered to 10. Because Topps was stupid enough to not foil number these cards, someone got screwed. Seriously, they have almost as many numbered parallels in their products as Panini, and yet the Rookie Premieres and cards like these continue to go unnumbered for some god forsaken reason.

On another, equally stupid note, who the fuck thinks that this card is real? Are people THAT fucking stupid? I mean, this one isnt even close. Then again, there are people who still pay 175 dollars for those ridiculous fake rookie premieres, so I guess Im not surprised.

  4. All it would take is 30 seconds of research to see that this monstrosity is not real. There is not even a sliver of doubt on whether that is real or not.

  5. Has anyone ever considered buying a real item from these scammers (something for a buck or whatever) and just leaving negative feedback talking about the fakes?

  6. Unfortunately, eBay removes those pretty quick per the seller's request that the purchased item arrived perfect.
