Article from 1989 on eBay

 I saw this article from January 20th, 1989 (and card) listed on eBay over the weekend.  Unfortunately the picture only shows about 80% of the Boston Herald clipping.  Still fun to see.

New Pickup June 2021 - Rack Pack

 Always like picking up rack packs with factory saw-cut cards on top.  This is a nice FF version on the middle pack with the slit going through the jersey #7.  Chuck Crim is underneath.

Fakes everywhere - Beware!

 I report all of these to (popular online resale e-place) but nothing ever gets done.  

The "Whiteouts" are too easy to make.  The same few sellers are creating these and unloading them all the time.  Turning a 50 cent card into $50-$100.  Check their feedback!  Selling dozens and dozens of these is a RED FLAG!

The "White Scribble" reprints starting appearing a few years ago.  No notations on them noting "Reprint" or "Fake".  Sure enough - now they keep popping up for sale as Original.  The fakes/reprints lately have been obvious to spot.  The yellowish knob is the real giveaway.  

Buyer beware!
