Default Fake 1952 Topps Willie Mays on eBay?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/302730192765?ul_noapp=true

Idk but this card looks pretty bad to me. The same seller also has a Clemente for sale.

That does look bad. The corners look cut to be rounded instead of naturally worn. The edges of the slab are very frosty too.

Wow, not even a good reprint. As fake as a $3 bill.

Nice work swarmee! That is the card that makes the psa serial number . I wonder if the 1955 Clemente also has a real example out there? I think the actual flip on this card looks fake to.

The last time it sold was March of this year. The seller back then admitted to it being a fake card in a PSA slab (talking about the Clemente). Here is the link.

Here is the real Clemente PSA 3 that sold in January thru Small Traditions auction house for over $700. Notice how different the real card looks to the reprint that people are trying to con people with.

Bobby, idk how you found out so much info about the card but way to go! So this guy is just fishing waiting for someone to trust in the SLAB! This is the problem with most novice collectors. I mean you should be able to just say hey itís graded by PSA itís got to be the real deal.
Maybe psa could come out with a tempered case. So that if itís opened even a little it gets cracks all over it.

I'm sure it's just a coincidence that these frosted slabs are being displayed on light/grayish backgrounds. Even looks like the fake Clemente and ebay Mays have the same background.

Before I joined this site I would have thought that if it were in a slabbed case it would be good to go.

I think my wife feels bad when I open presents and its eBay gift cards. I know she'd love to buy me actual cards instead of buying me gift cards but you just can't do that in this hobby. I have been reading and reading on here and I still am learning new stuff every day. I am sure I know about 0.1% of everything I need to know. This stuff blows my mind.
