Default BODA alleges problems with #1 BGS 1991 Topps Desert Shield set in Heritage

BODA has done quite a few posts about fake stamps and other issues with cards in this popular set. See this thread about the current auction of the top-ranked BGS set.

If indeed those are fake, the counterfeiters have really been paying attention...the seem to have fixed all the errors that made the fakes easily identifiable a few years ago. Maybe if you held them in your hand and could compare, the fake would jump out...but it sure doesnít in a photo and certainly not in a photo of one in a slab. At least not to me.

A couple of years ago I read all the good posts on net54 about how to ID fakes and was confident my chipper, Brett and schilling were legit...plus I had owned them since not long after Desert Storm. But I decided to not get them graded, mostly out of laziness. Based on these alleged fakes, I guess it would not have mattered ...canít imagine anyone taking a chance on buying ANY high dollar desert shield card now

If anyone has a good contact at Heritage they might inform them about the Blowout thread, the BODA member who posted it has studied this issue extensively and if he says some of the stamps are fake I would have a lot of confidence in that judgment.

Peter,

Thanks for posting this. There is a lot of good information in the numerous links and threads related to this. One of the biggest points I get out of this - and I am pretty familiar with the 1991 Topps DS set - is that the fakes are getting better, resolving most of the obvious issues with previous counterfeits.

I shouldn't be surprised that this has occurred, given the sales prices for DS cards.
