Default Why so many bids on this fake Gretzky rookie?

Correct me if I'm wrong here. This card is fake, and easily identified as such. Yet there are quite a few bids on it, with plenty of time remaining.

Is this just a byproduct of the massive influx of new hobbyists? Too many people with too little knowledge chasing cards that are counterfeited too often?

I imagine the winning bidder will be someone to whom buying a Gretzky rookie is a new experience. Sadly, it's looking like their experience will be a rather unpleasant one.
