Heroes of Sport Card Trimming & Group Break Scam
It's with great pleasure we drag this clown through the mud.
Will Jaimet used to get on Cardboard Connection Radio (now defunct) and hate on @SportsCardRadio. His company, Heroes of Sport took out full page banner ads on Beckett.com and in their magazine.
This idiot got other sports card minions to promote him. Sports cards breakers who can break any product for whatever reason deal with this piece of s***.
Here is what he's been up to lately.
In late 2012, Jaimet produced a repack product, Heroes of Sport, & paid hobby blogs to promote him and also got dumb a**es to give him free publicity.
He got amateur group breakers like Boomo & Gelfman to sell it for him.
The "product" was not even entirely packed out before release. No checklist existed. "Hot boxes" were produced several weeks after the initial release date.
People are fairly stupid in the sports card world so Heroes of Sport hung around for a little bit and released some other repack products.
In 2015, Heroes of Sport returned with a product called "The Truth".
The product was sold exclusively though a private facebook group run by a co-owner of Heroes of Sport, Jesse Craig. Craig currently works at PWCC Marketplace.
Heroes of Sport posted 25 cards that were supposed to be in "The Truth" on Twitter.... but 22/25 of those cards ended up being sold on the PWCC eBay account.
In November 2016, Jaimet was popped on 1 felony, unlawful use of a weapon charge, and 3 misdemeanors in Oregon. He's currently on probation....that he's violated twice. Oops!
Jaimet resurrected Heroes of Sport in 2019 with an Iconic Heroes product.
Blowout Cards (hacked in 2017), Cardsmiths Breaks, Grand Slam Collectibles, and Layton Sports Cards all participated in breaking the product.
There appears to be trimmed cards in the set. Yikes.
All customers should be refunded ASAP!
This Clayton Kershaw pulled by Cardsmiths Breaks looks to have a mangled edge now gone.
In 2018 Jaimet purchased many BGS or PSA 9 colored border Topps Series 1, 2 or Update cards. Magically, there are a bunch of PSA 10 versions of those cards in the 2019 Heroes of Sport product.
Jaimet also appears to trim many other cards and sell them through PWCC.
Remember a former owner of Heroes of Sport, Jesse Craig, is currently the Director of Business Development at PWCC.
COMC user 3124508 has uncovered 9 trimmed 2009 Donruss Elite Mike Trout autograph cards.
In total, just from the original Blowout thread there is evidence of over 30 documented trimmed cards by Heroes of Sport owner Will Jaimet.
Have fun buying stuff on eBay.
Do EXTENSIVE research before buying anything of value to you.
Don't blindly trust PWCC or Probstein123. People in the hobby use these consignment services to dump off questionable inventory.
PSA and BGS don't give a s*** about you. How hard would it be to measure cards? They don't do that? LOL
Don't buy any Heroes of Sport product. You shouldn't be buying any of that re-pack stuff anyways.
Most of the people involved with sports cards are shady, BROKE, dumb and only have selfish interests. Always keep that in mind.
Cardsmiths Breaks in a statement posted to his personal Facebook page, points the finger at everyone but himself.
"We don't actually know how many, if any have been altered."
"Blowout & other breakers have carried his products."
PSA or BGS "might" refund you.
Grand Slam Collectibles posted a video about the situation.
They broke 25 cases.
Doesn't think anyone should bring up that Will has a felony.
Isn't sure Will trimmed cards.
Must send in your raw cards from the Heroes of Sport and Grand Slam might grade them for you.
Didn't bring up that in 2012 Heroes of Sport was packing out product AND made hot boxes after the initial product was released.
Didn't mention what he was dimed out to break the 25 cases.
Looks like our buddy Will Jaimet bought some 260pt One-Touches from one of our Amazon accounts & returned them!
Jaimet no longer has a need for card supplies with his repack business dried up.
Stay Broke My Friends.
