BUYER BEWARE - FAKES ARE EVERYWHERE!
I've been seeing these 'Reprints' on eBay for the past year or more. I can usually spot them a mile away but recently I've been receiving emails from confused and concerned collectors. I decided to pick one up for $5 and see for myself. I don't want to get into how to tell etc - but when compared to a normal 1989 Fleer, it's obvious.
Buyer beware. I'm seeing too many people buying $50 White Scribble cards on eBay lately. These appear to be fake. Do your homework and be careful. Currently, there are dozens on eBay for sale.
Sellers that make and sell these are terrible for the hobby. They may justify it by saying that they put 'REPRINT' or 'RP' in the title. They know that people are buying these for $ and selling them as 'originals' for $$$$. My opinion is that all 'REPRINT' cards need it clearly stated somewhere on the card. Sure, it's nice to have a copy of a T206 Honus Wagner, but it needs to be clearly marked or clearly different than the original.
