    Need advice, help!

    https://i.imgur.com/fssxtVY.jpg

    Came across a nice looking auto card of Penny and Stockton. It's an NBA Hoops with a Skybox COA emboss stamp. There's no COA printed on the back of the card. Can anyone shed some light on me whether this is authentic or a fraud? Seller says he obtained from a collector in the 90's. I know Scoreboard circulated embossed cards, but I think SkyBox has a little more credibility behind them than Scoreboard. Am I wrong on that? Any advice?

    thanks.

    Take what I say with a grain of salt. I would bet that the card is officially signed by John Stockton hence the seal by skybox. My guess is the Hardaway autograph was added after the fact. Another reason I say this if Hardaway and Stockton signed this card at the same time I would think that the autograph color would be in the same pen color. That just my two cents. Best of luck in whatever you decide to do.

    I have a few cards that are similar I believe. I'm happy to pull those and add scans for comparison. I've not seen these cards that have 2 autos on them before.
    Back into trading after several years off. WTTF: ANY Jazz cards I don't already have yet.

    Feel free to put up the scans. Perhaps others will chime in with their thoughts.

    Looks like a card from 1995-96 NBA Hoops. Either a base card from a subset or an insert card. Either way a pretty brutal image to be featured on a "John Stockton" card. Don't really any autograph cards being in that set though there is a small chance they did one of Stockton. They wouldn't have done one of him and Penny though. Can't tell you if it is from Skybox or something from like the Home Shopping Network but I do know that the Skybox COA seal and other seals like that can easily be faked on basketball cards. Namely the Skybox Autographics autograph insert line so I'd be wary of using that as the only sign of it being authentic even though the autographs look legit not knowing their signatures.
