    Too Good To Be True

    What am I to think when an eBay seller has over 200 UD patch cards for sale and every single one is 3 or 4 color "sick" patch? Guess it could be legit, but I am not feeling good about making the buy. I see many single color patches from the same sets. Hard to believe one guy amassed all these multi-colored ones.

    Depends on the seller, if he's selling off his PC it could be legit. I think you would be wise to search the web for some of these cards to see what they looked like if they were posted prior to the auctions.

    Definitely search ebay completed auctions to see if they have recently sold

    Do you have a link to the seller's auctions? That would probably help us figure out if it's legit

    Give us a link and I'm sure long-term collectors will recognize the seller's name if it's a legit dude or a renowned patch faker.

    I promise not to bid on any of the cards you'll bid on. LOL

    Yeah, there's some people out there that have amassed insane patch collections. Without seeing the link, I have a hard time believing that he'd have 200 Fake UD Patches (I assume you're talking about the UD 1/2 Patch cards?). Many of those are really nice patches anyway..... and most the time when I've seen reports of Fakes, it's a guy selling 1-5 cards... that all have nothing to do with each other, other than the fact that they had great patches. This sounds more like a collection being sold off.

    Was a little hesitant to post a link. I didn;t want to shade the guy if it wasn't warranted.

    Some nice cards for sure, but nothing that would seem to set off red flags. A lot of the patches are just straight lines, 2-3 colours. Nothing too crazy or over the top. Most of the patches are from different years of SPGU Authentic Fabrics subsets which I think shows he was probably collecting these at some point.

    As many have said, do your your research and see if these cards have popped up elsewhere. Good luck.

    I would say it is all legit. Nothing stands out that I would red flag or have concerns with. I agree with the previous post that it is just a private collection that someone is moving on from.
