ALERT: Fake – Trimmed – Altered – Graded Cards by PSA or BGS

Fitting that the very first card PSA ever graded was trimmed and they didn't catch it. 

Here are just some of the fake, trimmed or altered cards that exist in real PSA or BGS holders.

Except for the Vegas Dave card that PSA claims is a fake holder, all of these mistakes could have been caught during the grading process.

Most scammers, trimmers and cheats submit cards to eBay consignors PWCC Marketplace or Probstein123 to sell. 

Heroes of Sport had a unique method of selling some of his trimmed cards. Put them into a re-pack product and get idiot group breakers to sell to unknowing collectors. 

Assume any valuable card you are looking to buy is fake and prove to yourself it's real before deciding to purchase.

Apparently it's fine to mess with your vintage cards and slab them?  

Removal of dirt, glue, pencil marks, wax are all ok. Sometimes chemical substances are added to the cards to remove imperfections and improve appearance.

1998 Bowman's Best
Peyton Manning - Autograph
Evidence: ​Emailer

Peyton Manning didn't sign these cards like this. You can see examples here.

For me the proof was how far the 'M' in Manning trails down. On all his other cards you can't find any even close to these.

Most likely what happened was the autograph faded, which is common, and someone reapplied or tried to trace over the original one.

I greatly enjoy your posts, I’ve had a gut feeling about these shysters and their good ol’ boys club mentality. Keep exposing these punks and eventually we can force them to go legit or close up shop. Thanks for bringing this to light when others are afraid to do so.
