Translation: everybody is buying so much shit online, they’re going to buy it whether or not we have ebay bucks. Might as well save that 1%.
Id bet within a year, we see ebay bucks disappear all together. I’ve seen an uptick in coupons targeting specific categories, and as another poster...
Randy, this DOES help. Thank you.
I compared my 2 base McGwires and 1 Tiffany. Zoomed in I see the “yellow” transition area in the Tiffany and one of the base. Turns out, one of my base McGwires hits most of the “counterfeit” characteristics, but I’m very confident the Tiffany is authentic...
So recently I bought an 84 Tiffany Mattingly which turned out to be counterfeit. Now I’m paranoid about all my Topps Tiffany cards.
Does anyone know how to spot a counterfeit McGwire Tiffany RC? Ive attached the photos of mine (with a regular Topps for reference). Is this one legit?
The blurry photo felt a little odd. sounds like it’s a “reprint”
As for the surge, I think RC collectors are just trying to upgrade their 80s rookies. A Mattingly 84 Topps is pretty common, but the tiffany version is a big step up.
You wouldn’t happen to have a Mattingly would you?
So I bought a raw 84 Tiffany Mattingly. It has the high gloss, so I know this isn’t a base version. My only issue is the card seems a little “blurry” compared to the regular 84 Topps. The stock and thickness feel right.
Did 84 have counterfeit issues? Or were they still figuring out...
Didn't read the whole thread. Once this took a crybaby turn, I veered off the road a bit.
But my initial thought was the same as everyone else. You personally inked the tag to make it display nicer. Shame.
Does anyone have a line on one of these? Prefer a red HBO one, but will take the aftermarket knockoff if that’s all we can find. Building a Kenny Powers shadow box and the foam finger is a necessity.
