    Fake cards is a big concern and it always brings some risks when buying on eBay. Getting cards graded is always a way to at least confirm they are the real deal! Hope that charges are laid for people who are producing fake cards like this Lafreniere!

    Tons of articles also about people selling fake autographs, that is another area where fraudsters seem to be lurking
    Both Canada and USA addresses available for shipping!

    Makes me want to never buy anything on ebay again. You wonder how much fake stuff is out there, and how much of in is already in my PC

    This is why I think all cards should be serial numbered - at least SP's, parallels, inserts and other cards printed in limited amounts, and IMO there should be a site where you can register your cards.. It will certainly help against fraud, not only that but help collectors have an idea of just how many of a particular card could potentially be out there in unopened product among other useful information about that particular card or cards in general..

    The only problem with that is it's really not worth it to grade a card sometimes for numerous reasons.. I mean I'm not going to grade a card unless it's financially feasible for me to do so, and I would presume I speak for the strong majority because there is really nothing to gain and everything to lose by getting some cards graded.. Look, for pretty much any modern card if I get it graded and it comes back a 10 I will probably only get high book value, perhaps a premium if I'm lucky, if I get a 9 I will probably get what the card is currently selling for raw, perhaps a little more but not enough to justify having it graded when it costs $10-15 bucks to have it graded, and if you get an 8 then you're totally screwed and out of pocket - I mean in that situation you would be better off just cracking the slab and selling it raw, but that's pretty "dishonest" as well. And I say that because maybe the individual that graded the card was just having a bad day, I mean the grade placed on cards are still subjective...

    Anyway my point is - don't hold your breath because like I said there are plenty of reasons to not have cards graded just so the buyer can sleep well at night knowing it's been authenticated, but I get your point...

    I would prefer to collect 80's stuff. But because of all the fake/trimmed cards that a possibly out there, It's hard to pull the trigger on the buy button. Therefore i'm sort of forced to buy newer stuff.

    I bought a Mint Luc Robitaille rookie last month off ebay. I'm pretty sure it's real because I haven't read anything about fake LR rookie cards roaming around, but I did win it for 20 bucks with no competing bids which is kind of strange.

    It's probably not as much as you think, and you probably don't have any fake cards in your PC..

    If someone is going to make fake cards and sell them online they're going to get caught because certainly there will be a sales record of that fake card being sold.. Not only that but most counties in the United States - I don't know about Canada have a "cyber crime task-force" and the second they get a whiff of that they will investigate.

    With that said, someone would have to be stupid to knowingly sell fake cards just due to the fact they're NOT anonymous..

    And since this thread is about fake cards - there are actually collectors out there that collect and pay good money for good fakes/counterfeits just due to the rarity of good counterfeits - it's usually older stuff tho and the rookie cards you would suspect like Gretzky, Brett Hull, Mario Lemieux etc...
