    1991 Desert Shield Chipper Jones — real or fake?

    I don’t have much expertise with this set, and I’ve heard about counterfeit ones floating around. Does anyone know if this is the real deal?

    Actually, just comparing it to the real PSA graded ones, this one appears muddy and placed wrong.

    So....my opinion isn't worth a lot. But I have been studying these off and on for two reasons. A) to verify the copies I have of the Alomar card are real, and B) to search for a counterfeit (I'd love to have an example of a fake in my collection). So based on that, my amateur take is that it just looks off to me. Can't put my finger on it, but it just seems wrong.
    Collecting Roberto Alomar. Over 4000 unique cards, but always looking for those I'm missing!
