Whomever doesn't see that is a reprint, in a split second, hasn't been doing this long enough. It is laughable it is so bad.

Not everyone sees the signs that it is a fake. Those who say it is a fake should give their reasons. This way the OP can learn to detect these in the future.

Just saying its a fake really doesn't help the OP.

What makes everyone so sure it is a reprint? I thought it was when I got it, but I have no clue.

A real one is now next to the poor looking fake in your first post. See the differences in print quality? Yours looks all washed out compared to the other real one that looks crisp. That is how to tell.

Many, myself included, are hesitant to list the noticeable signs that it is fake on the internet since counterfeiters can learn from that information. However, this one, as Leon suggests, is not a good fake. No one who has looked at several thousand 1933 Goudeys over the years would need more than about half a second to assess that it looks all wrong. It's like looking at a picture of Daniel Day-Lewis in costume as Abraham Lincoln and recognizing that he's supposed to look like Lincoln, and he does kinda look like Lincoln I suppose, but it's obvious that it isn't a photo of Lincoln himself. If you had to say what the evidence is you could certainly do it, but it just feels sort of self-evident if you've grown up seeing pictures of Lincoln.

Agreed! Also...what did this large collection consist of? Cards from 80’s-present with a goudey ruth thrown in? Use your head. Look for comparables on the internet...it only takes a few minutes. And if you don’t have the ability to critically analyze these cards to determine if they’re real or fake you should not be buying them ungraded.

Exactly! How many times have we seen this? One or 2 posts from a newbie when the info is gathered and then never heard from again.

i agree. the guy asked if it was real because he didn’t want to waste money sending it to psa. the responses he received tells him he would be wasting that money. so I think telling him it’s fake does help him.

All the OP has to do is to click the button up top labeled "Net54 Archive Center" and read all the articles at the bottom of the page.
