I have mentioned fake patches, fake autographs and scams in general on this site for the last four years. It seems like when it comes to taking advantage of uniformed collectors out there, these scammers come out of the woodwork in droves. When there is money to be made, there will be bad apples that take advantage of people who don’t know any better.
NSA is a “company” that has tried to capitalize on collectors’ obsession with game used material. I put company in quotes because what they sell is barely meets expectations to be a tradable commodity. They are likely a garage based group of douchebags who think that they can continue to feast on people who don’t know their ass from their elbow.
Normally they are right, as eBay has shown little interest in squashing this bug, but I think their recent idea takes the cake:
Obviously, these are not really game used, and even if they were, WHO CARES? If you search youtube for NSA jerseys, the video evidence is absolutely hilarious. I think they should be shut down, but I don’t think that will happen. Lets just hope that there isn’t anyone who doesn’t know better.
It’s a cheap attempt to make money, and if there is anyone out there who is going to buy in, its their own fault.
