Great pickups. FYI you have to watch out for the Star XRC's since there are alot of fakes out there. If you have a scan I might be able to tell.

I am sure there are lots of fakes out there, but silly as it sounds if I have a fake I ALMOST don't care............almost. I don't have a scan up on my bucket yet, probably tomorrow I will get one up there.

Don't get offended I'm just trying to help out another scf member. Reason is I have been in contact with the guy who is an expert on authenticating and grading star cards. He is one of the guys grading companies like GAI, SCD, etc rely on when they authenticate these cards. I have sent some that I have picked up along the way to him and some have come out fakes. This guy is working on cracking down people selling these counterfeit cards on ebay. I still see some fakes being sold on ebay. If you almost dont care about getting ripped off then its all good. Let me know if you want me to take a look when you have a scan.

Yaofan- Is his name Steve? This is the same guy that showed me a few things.

I also bought a fake Ewing. The authentic has more border on the left, making it look off-center. I also bought one, but worked out something with the seller.

yeap steve and you are also right about the seller. After authentication thru him it quite easy to tell which are authentic and which are counterfeits.

Sorry to hijack the thread...

But Yao, what characteristics are there on others besides Ewing? Ewing is the only one that I am confident in knowing what to look for, and I bought 2 already...

I appreciate the help if I can get a scan up I will definitely do so. As for it being a fake or not, obviously I want it to be real, however if it happens to be a fake I would certainly take appropriate action but it has been a while since I bought one of these so I am happy to get it regardless of the price......to a certain degree of course. dpeezy, I will look for the item number for you and try to get back here in a little while with it, maybe you can tell by the scan. I am a BIG Ewing collector, I am trying to pick up all of his cards someday and getting closer since mainly I need just the high-end stuff and some later year cards. Thanks for the interest though....

I sent this one to Steve to be put in the reference books at GAI grading.

Judge for yourself, more border on the left is the best way to spot an authentic...
