Default Extremely worrisome possible trend.

Saw this listing on Ebay yesterday -

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lot-of-9-BGS...cAAOSwnipWY7a5

What is the possible benefit of purchasing cracked flips unless you plan on reusing them? I do not like the path this is headed.

WOW! That should be illegal. You are right, what else could you do with these except use them for making fake flips? So I guess whoever buys them is probably a crook. And why would someone crack open cards that were graded a 10? VERY STRANGE

Those aren't 10's. Those are BCCG 10'S - which are Mint or better. A 9 really.

It was nice of him to include his address in the listing so that we can send him hate mail

The "why" to me is the grader. BCCG grading is not exactly considered worthy. So, perhaps cracking out a 10 in order to get a PSA/SGC/Beckett 10 is the idea. But, I agree with both of you. The only reason to buy the flips would be to do something less than reputable. Should it be illegal? Well, no. It is your stuff and I can't see any reason you can't sell it. But, I can't think of anyone that would use this stuff for anything beyond reselling other cards inside with these cert numbers.

I wonder if this is something that goes on: A crook submits a legitimate card and gets a grade. He cracks it and resubmits and gets another legitimate grade. He repeats this several times, thereby getting 6-7 cert numbers for one card. Then, he takes lesser (or fake) cards and uses the legit cert numbers. They come back legit, because the numbers are legit. Just not the cards. Nobody is the wiser.

There probably aren't many Beckett Slab fabricators out there. I have never seen one cracked that could be reused with or without the frosting.

All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

I if they were real PSA flips that 10s or 9s than I would pay attention....not those flips..

remember if cards were resubmitted for the big payoff grade..that means the flips that weren't used are for a grade where it was worth it to try to get a higher grade.
