For Your Hobby Amusement

I just had to laugh when I saw these cards.  Has anyone ever seen Fake Takes before?  They are totally non-authentic and are made just for your own amusement.  This Sammy Sosa is suppose to have a piece of cork in it.  I’ve seen others that feature a piece of betting slip which is supposed to have been used by Pete Rose.  I love the fact they say “Unauthenticity” across the top and the “Tenish” grade it received.  Believe it or not, but people have even been purchasing these things.  They only sell for a couple of bucks though.  Click on the picture to enlarge.  I’m sure you’ll get a chuckle.

  1. I have been looking all over for these to do a post on and you beat me. They have a Barry Bonds with the tip of of a syringe also

  2. I used to buy these directly from the maker. The maker gave me a couple free ones at his booth at the 2004 National Sports Card Convention. Unfortunately, I lost touch with him and his faketakes website is down. I used to have the whole collection…I remember a Pete Rose with “game-used” betting ticket, Barry Bonds with “game-used” needle, and about 5 others.
