    2000 Finest Gold Refractors... backdoored?

    This seller has a whole bunch of 2000 Finest Gold Refractors listed and multiples of some big names. Upon closer inspection the ones he has listed don't have the jagged/saw-like/die-cut border they're supposed to have (example below):

    Are the ones he has listed backdoored versions? I messaged the seller and he said they came in a collection he purchased.

    He also has a crapload of unnumbered 2000 Stadium Club Chrome First Day Issue cards. These are supposed to be numbered /100 but the ones he has are missing the serial number. And those aren't the only 'missing serial number' cards he has listed.

    I'm picking up the Brady Anderson. Likely cut from a sheet that was backdoored.

    He has multiple versions of some tough gold refractors too, like 8 copies of one Vlad card I was watching. Seems like they must be backdoored, as odds of having that many copies is high.

    Accidentally bought a few of the 1999 before I realized they weren't serial numbered - got too excited and didn't read the description, wouldn't have bought them otherwise, so there's $25 down the drain

    I would buy the 2000s, though, since they weren't serial numbered anyway. Unfortunately I have most of those.
    I collect all cards of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
    Especially interested in: Brandon Webb, Paul Goldschmidt, Daniel Hudson, Luis Gonzalez, Jay Bell, A.J. Pollock, Steve Finley, David Peralta, Zack Godley, Stephen Drew

    I actually bought *because* they were missing the serial number

    The collection of Finest and Stadium etc was purchased from someone involved with the Chromium products. Which is technology involved with certain product lines. Seller did not cut them down, don't know exactly in what form the previous owner obtained them.
