You may have seen these cards popping up all over eBay, and I am starting to wonder what is going to happen to them. The cards are out of 2009 Bowman Sterling Football, and I have to believe that these cards are going to be a playground for fakes.
Last week, a few collectors over on FCB noticed that a number of Red Sterling 1 of 1s were being auctioned off without the sticker or jersey attached to them. This could mean that someone with devious intentions had the chance to buy a cheap “1/1” that wasn’t meant to be sold, rip a sticker off another card, sign it, and sell it for big money. For all intensive purposes, a player super collector may want it as well, so it may not all be bad.
Today I received my normal Peterson/Harvin emails in my inbox from eBay and saw these two different cards. They are not the 1/1s and are just regular cards that probably will be purchased for under 50 dollars. The cards themselves sell for over 150 when real.
It looks to be another shipping mistake from Topps, so watch your ass for any fakes you may normally bid on without question.
