Plus, the serial number is 13/100. Check any other FW Patch Auto; they always use a leading 0 if the first number is under 100 (the "real" version would be 013/100).

Remember the old days when you could contact other bidders directly and warn them about bad auctions? It got abused much more than it helped, but would be handy in cases like this. Now you have to report the auction to eBay, etc. and anything with them is such a PITA that it's not worth it.LF this ITG Decades 1980's Autograph: AMM2 - Mark Messier CAN SP. Also need many Emblems and Numbers from ITG Decades 1980's and may need Quads, Golds or other low print runs from that set.

It is a stock photo from UD when they were doing a preview of 10-11 sp authentic, stay far away from that listingCasey

Another aspect that jumps out to me is the shading on the patch. Compare it to this other ebay listing, which we can safely assume to be real since the seller has good feedback and you can see the sleeve in the scan.
you can see how the stock photo mock up has what appears to be some photoshop shading around the edge of the patch that you don't see in the "real" card. This ebay listing also has the leading 0 on the numbering and a slightly different autograph than the questionable listing. Avoid this card!Photobucket: Hidden Content
