The sticker is on upside down fool!
I was looking for Adrian Peterson autos on ebay to show him an example of why I hate sticker autos, specifically when the sig runs off the sticker. Adrian Peterson is one of those people that does that. So I did a search for Adrian Peterson auto and saw how many Rookie Premier autos came up. Some of the fakes are terrible. I ran across this auction.
Ok, any person that is even close to familiar with either auto knows that is a fake from a mile away. It is a terrible fake. Here are some Legit AP autos:
The BGS card above, I believe, is actually legit. If not it is one of the best damn fakes of all time. Regardless, I sent an email to the seller of the Peterson/Lynch:
IamJoeCollector: You know that's a fake right?
Waxpackcity: doubtful since we pulled it from a pack ourselves, there are many fakes in this set. but the ones with the congrats message on the back with the players names are hard to fake, topps just doesnt just give those out without sigs, and its definitely not a reprint, those are easy to spot up close.
To which I replied: That is a fake. You did not pack pull it. Everyone knows its fake that's why you can't sell it for that $88. Really?
**update** Waxpackcity: What is your evidence besides random accusations, we just listed it, pretty sure it will sell at this price.
IAMJC: First, the peterson auto is not even close to what his actual auto looks like. Compare it to any number of AP autos. Second, Rookie Premier Autos are one of the most faked autos out there. There are hundreds of fakes on the net. That is why Topps has gone to serial numbering the cards in 2010. Third, your price is not even close to the value of a real version.It may indeed sell, but to an unknowing buyer.
Waxpackcity: I know more about fakes in this set and other sets than anyone I know. This is the real deal, not all of them are fakes. We pulled this from a pack, I wouldnt lie having 7 years of perfect powerseller feedback.
IAMJC: Can you point me to ANY other AP auto that looks like yours? There aren't any. Yours looks nothing like any legitimate AP auto out there. If you know more about fakes in this set and other sets than anyone you know, then you know this is a fake. Come on man, this auto is so bad it's ridiculous. Please, show me ANY AP auto that looks like this. None of the Upper Deck autos do. None of the Donruss do. None of the Topps do. http://sports-cards.shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=adrian+peterson+topps+auto&_sacat=64482&_odkw=masterp*****&_osacat=64482&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313 other than all the fake Rookie premier autos, none of the real autos look anthing like yours. Of course all of the fake rookie premiers have a ton of variations of autos. So, I'll ask you again to point me to ANY other AP auto that looks like yours.
Here are some Lynch autos for comparison:
