homemade e93 cobb?

Post by cccc on Mon Apr 27, 2009 10:39 pm

most laser copies you can usually tell right away but this one is giving me a little trouble. i don't like the washed out colors and on e93s printing process the figures are tinted so the players seem like they're jumping out of the background...hard to tell with the scan?

i'm still not positive one way or another, just saw it so didn't get a chance to talk with the seller...bleh.

you are right, the color looks odd. The corners are also suspect as they are too round to lack the foxing that you see evident on the other 2 cards. The stains are a nice touch and look legit, not like a card that was soaked in coffee and then baked. Definitely a card you would need to see in person.

Here's the LINK to the completed auction. Hate to see someone getting suckered in to paying $430 for a fake. And it definitely looks fake to me as well (colors are too washed out, the caption font is off, and the borders are wonky too). Probably a homemade job as Quan suggests.

Seems like it's common scammer tactic to combine a fake high $ card in the same scan with a few authentic cards, like the seller did in this case.
