I remember that post too. But I can't find it either. I think some of the old threads got lost when this site upgraded servers. Have you tried google?

As for a fake Jordan in a slab, there are two ways it could get in there.
1. If it passed PSA/BGS grading. This is not likely. They're pretty good at spotting fakes.
2. If the scammer got a real Jordan RC graded, then swapped out the real RC for a fake one. I have heard of this. But a PSA/BGS person can tell you if the case was tampered with (ie. cracked and/or resealed).
So, all in all, probably not. Most of the fakes are sold "ungraded".
