    Large submitter Selling Altared cards

    Hi,

    I hope it is ok to post the link to another board, but i do feel it is an important one.

    https://www.blowoutforums.com/showthread.php?t=1276110

    There is a member who discovered pretty alarming evidence of this seller having many altered cards in stock and for sale. While the final outcome is still ongoing, i think there are some takeaways which the hobby needs to address:

    - How can BGS/PSA combat this? For serial numbered cards, it can be traced - for non-serial numbered card, less so.
    - Are the grading companies even willing to take steps to improve it?
    - in light of the findings, how can we put any confidence in buying graded cards?

    That thread is a must read. Long, but it's like a Lifetime movie for card collectors. Set aside some time and enjoy.

    PSA - Don't buy high-end MINT and GEM MINT cards, cause they're probably trimmed garbage.

    Side note, tonedef2008 is obviously that board's mod's second account used to create support for his awful actions as a "mod" (more like a BO corporate shill). All tonedef2008 ever does is blow Houdini and attack anyone who says anything against him. Strange.

    OMG. The best is when SSIGuy came back into the thread under "different" new member Iceman1982. Fantastic stuff. Only a narcissist would think he could get away with that. lol
