Are You Sure That Card Is A 1/1 Don’t Be Fooled!!!!!!!

Pulling a card out of a pack that is numbered 1/1 can be one of the highest momments of a collectors life.  Just knowing that you beat the odds is exciting enough but now you have a card that is the only one like it in the world.  Cards that are numbered 1/1 can hold a large value which is why people try and make a non 1/1 numbered card into a 1/1 card.  People have found a lot of creative ways in which they will take a high numbered card or low numbered card and say that it is a 1/1. I have created this guide to inform people on how to stay away from cards that say they are 1/1 but aren’t.  Below is a list of the many ways people create a 1/1 card that isn’t a 1/1:

  • Jersey Number – Say a card is numbered 10/100.  The seller could say that the card is a 1/1 because the player’s jersey number is 10 and thats the only one like it.
  • First One Made – People may say that a card is a 1/1 because it was the first one made.  For example, a card numbered 1/100.
  • Last One Made – People may say that a card is a 1/1 because it was the last one one made.  For example, a card numbered 100/100.
  • Statistic – Someone may claim a card is a 1/1 because the number matches a statistic from their career.  For example, height, weight, birthday, debut, etc…
  • Math – By doing addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division people may claim a card is a 1/1 because just by doing math and using the numbers the answer may match up with the players birthday, jersey number, or statistic from their career.  For example, a card numbered 12/20 being considered a 1/1 because 12 + 20 = 32, and 32 is the player’s jersey number.
  • Only One They Have Seen – Some people may say a card is a 1/1 because it is the only one that they have seen.
  • High Grade – Cards have been considered 1/1 because the seller thinks that it would get a high grade.

    As you can see people have become very creative when taking a non 1/1 card and trying to turn it into a 1/1 card.  I hope this guide will help you avoid these people that are selling cards like this.  The only way a card can be a 1/1 is if it is stamped or written on by the company it was made from.  People are always coming up with new ways to consider cards to be 1/1.  Please be careful when buying a card that the seller says is a 1/1.  Read the description carefully and check the sellers feedback and you should be just fine.
