2021 Topps Museum 1/1 Canvas?

Excited to pickup this "1 of 1" FF piece.  Licensed by Topps.  Unique item for the 2021 Topps Museum Canvas Collection.  Drawn by Gary Kezele who has done several of these for the major card companies.  Sports and non-sports like Star Wars etc.  Beautiful work by a popular artist.

Obviously, this card was never in a 2021 Topps pack.  Selected artists are sent blank "1 of 1" cards to work with and sell.  This is how Topps (and others) compensate these artists.  

Below is the 'selected' Ripken canvas reproduction card from the 2021 set by artist Josh Trout.

New White Scribble Pickup

 New White Scribble Pickup!  Only the 2nd time I've seen the saw-cut on the left side of the bat knob.  Neat little print dot on the letter B too.  Something different for the collection.

New FF Pickup. FF cut from sheet.

 Newish pickup this summer.  Oversized FF card cut from a sheet of cards.  Probably saved from a trash can or dumpster in 1989.  Zoomed in to find a decent blue ink offset too.

CSG grades a FF "Mystery" card

 Another one slips past the experts.  Currently a CSG 9 FF is up on eBay.  After closer examination - it's a FF "Mystery" card.  Not an original FF error.

Fakes and more Fakes! BEWARE!

 Too many fakes being created.  Here is a current eBay listing featuring a FAKE White Scribble - "authenticated by PSA" and a FAKE FF with a FAKE signature.  

 The 'PSA' White Scribble is a FAKE card placed in a FAKE slab (note the missing PSA embossed logos) with a FAKE flip using a serial number from a real PSA 8 WS......

Buyer Beware!

 eBay listing has been removed!  Seller's ID was pacestrading

New Loop Scribble Pickup

New pickup this month.  A Black Scribble w/ Loop version with a slightly angled saw-cut.  Not a new version, just something different.  The cut is the closest to the bat knob I've seen for this version.  😁
