NonSportsCardForum member JerS86 was kind enough share some questionable cards in their collection.
In these unfortunate collecting days it is great to see collectors continuously reaching out to share their stories and contact other buyers of questionable cards. . .
In looking at the scans JerS86 set, I am in complete agreement. Here are JerS86′s comments as to why the cards were being questioned:
I noticed the Dafoe was fake when I saw what someone on this forum posted about ilovenewyork. It’s the same as the one’s he was selling.
Then, I started looking at all of my autograph cards under a 10x magnifying glass and I pulled out the ones that looked a little too perfect.
I originally suspected the Dushku was a fake when I saw how bold and perfect the signature was. I compared it to all of the Dushku’s I could find on eBay and none of them looked as bold as mine. Also here’s an auction that prooves it’s a fake, same exact signature: eBay item: 360221543215, Seller: whysteve.
The Carpenter signature was also a little too perfect. So, I checked eBay and found the same exact card being sold by ihatehappypeople.
I hope this helps.
The Dafoe and Dushku cards that have been questioned multiple times, but this is the first Charisma Carpenter Veronica Mars autograph I’ve seen a collection question. As you can see the Dafoe and Carpenter autos have the tell tale ‘dots’ at the ends of the lines in the signatures, and the Dushku is an exact copy of several others that have been sold.
I have been hoping to do a detailed analysis of these cards, but I haven’t been able to find the time, it’ll come at some point. Thank you very much to JerS86, hopefully this will have more field reports in the future, with any luck it’ll simply be alerts to eBay auctions, and not about cards that have already been purchased.
