Seems to be a rash of these popping up — legit, or colored with a marker? Some of these are so bad they have to be altered. . .
All were on sale on eBay. . . I’ve tweeted Rittenhouse, hopefully they chime in. Follow me on twitter @the_real_webjon.
So far the non-sport card industry hasn’t been hit hard by the swatch/patch faking problem that plagues certain segments of the sports card hobby. Webjon hasn’t covered it much either, partially because it is unusual to see, but also because non-sport relics often aren’t numbered so proving a card has been altered can be next to impossible — well, that is unless the attempt to deceive is a hack job like this card a blowout card forum member alerted me to:
Inkworks 4400 Season 2 PW#5 Samantha Ferris as Nina Jarvis:
It looks like someone attempted to make this card into a bloody swatch variant, but got a bit over zealous and got fake blood all over the edge of the card. . . I can’t see Inkworks putting together cards with fabric that was sopping fake blood so this card seems questionable, at best. . .
This card keeps getting passed around, and each time it pops up it has shown up on webjon because it doesn’t look quite right. It’s a Topps Daredevil Ben Affleck autograph and has the hallmarks of an autopen signature:

Thank you to the blowout forum tipster for pointing this card out.
