I have had a quote from Gellman prominently displayed over to the right for a couple of weeks now. Take a quick glance over there and read it. Now continue...
My friend Kevin, the mortgage guy with the office near my store, and guy that drops off cool Kellogg's 3-d cards occasionally, stopped in today.
He handed me an awesome 2004 Fleer Clearly Authentics Ivan Rodriguez Patch card #29/75.
This is one of the coolest patch cards I have ever held in my hand. It has almost a complete Tiger head in it. It could be fake.
I have put this card under a magnifying glass tonight. Trying to see how anyone could pull out a plain swatch, and embed a fancy swatch. I can't see any visible damage. None whatsoever. I am amazed that Beckett declared this card questionable. How do they determine something like that when there is no visible damage to the card?
There's an auction for a Cal Ripken card here. The Cal card has what looks like the edge of a letter or number swatch. I wonder if it's fake?
Kevin paid a nice price for this Pudge card. Now he is left to wonder about it's history.
And we're all left to wonder about our patch cards some more.
