I'm getting pretty sick and tired of seeing guys selling fake autographs and patches on eBay. They are ruining the hobby and stealing people's hard earned money.
We as a community need to stand up and stop this. I don't know if everyone reports these guys, but there are thousands of members here. We can make a difference and stop these crooks.
We also can't rush to judgement on every sick patch card or autograph. There are lots of legit logo patches, tag patches, etc. out there. Before placing a report, please check out the seller's other auctions (including completed auctions), see his feedback and see what others have to say about it here.
After a consensus is met that a card is fake, EVERYONE who see's the thread (and who is a member on eBay), PLEASE REPORT THE ITEM! It's simple and quick to do!
If you see a fake card on eBay or read about one here and don't do anything about it, you're not helping the situation. Sure YOU might look out for fake cards so you don't buy them. But there are lots of people in this hobby who get duped, and as long as there is money to be made they will continue to sell fake cards.
WE ALL NEED TO REPORT THEIR AUCTIONS, GET THEM KICKED OFF EBAY AND OUT OF THE HOBBY!
To report an eBay item:
Simply click the "Report Item" on the right-hand side of the listing.
Now you will see three tabs.

Under "Reason for Report" choose "Counterfeit item or authenticity disclaimer".
