How anyone can collect that stuff after watching those interviews is just beyond me. Collectors should buy stock in Santa Claus as he seems more real than the majority of the shiny crap out there, at least according to those guys talking about how they all used stamps to autograph things. Just another reason I can't stand most new Pro sports athletes or new sports cards.

To be fair, to an extent, auto pens, wife signatures, secretarial, and bullpen signatures plague the vintage as well. Of course the difference is those weren't backed by a third party stating they were genuine.

Yes, we should not forget the Sinclair Oil Ruth balls given out as prizes to people.

I think the only real issue with modern cards is the redundancy. And the secondary market seems to play that out nicely. Sets that are basically legacy products at this point (Topps, Topps Chrome, Bowman, Bowman Chrome, Heritage, Archives) cost pennies per pack compared to the super redundant high end products (Museum, Tier one, Immaculate, etc.) but the big cards from the far cheaper products outsell them 10:1.

I know Judge isn't the best example, but look at his Heritage, Finest, and Archives autographs and variations compared to Museum, Tier One, and Platinum. It's not even close. Same goes for guys like Benintenti, Bregman, KB, Trout, Harper, you name it.

Here is an interesting article about some of the most prolific mistakes by Panini.

http://www.sportscardradio.com/panin...cams-mistakes/

For those of you that prefer a summation it includes the following:

1) Fake Game used
2) Fake Autos
3) "Event worn" materials being labeled as "game used" - which, to me, really just sounds like an unprovable, passable, excuse for using fakes.
4) Cards being held back and not released in the original release of the product, or released in the wrong product.
5) And of course the Auto Pen

Hopefully, that contract extension is likely, "you're going to sign for cheap, your going to sign a lot, and for a long time." also, did Dak apologize?

Either way I don't really collect to much of the premium era stuff with the exception of what I am still working on with my Maddux PC (which doesn't go past 2009).
