Chrome Proofs Are Garbage

Last night I received a question about these so called “Chrome Proofs” you see up for sale.  They wanted to know if these are authentic 1/1 proofs from the manufacturer.  The answer to that question in no.  These were once base cards from a Bowman Chrome set, and then someone dissolved away the cardboard and what was left is the chrome front.  When cleaned up it looks like a proof that came from a manufacturer, but in reality its nothing more than an altered base card made to fool collectors.

These cards fit nicely into the same category as those 1/1 proofs containing the multi-colored bars.  Those cards come from an uncut sheet that should have been discarded by the manufacturer but somehow found their way into the hands of a scammer who thought it would be a good idea to cut them up and try to pass them off as proofs.  Manufacturers really need to find a better way of discarding the leftovers of past products so they stay out of the hands of scammers.

While doing a little research for this post, one of the biggest sellers of these counterfeit proofs is none other than ljbiggestfan2, who also is a huge seller of NSA “game-used” cards.  For those people who defend NSA because you can’t admit you got scammed, just look at what else this person is selling.  It sure doesn’t add to the credibility of NSA.  Be sure to check out my other posts about NSA which have attracted a lot of attention from the collecting community.

    I think you are fishing for something that is not there and have been for a while and it is a disgrace. Just because someone has opened the items does not mean that they are not real, and actually they look quite real to me. I have also looked at some of your photos; maybe you should thank God that you have a chance at life-
    Clearly you do realize that you are just giving NSA more business! I am also sending a copy of all this to NSA so now they are aware of what you are doing.
    Since I am a lawyer I hope they sue the shit out of you.
    All you are doing is writing about a product so you can get hits on your blog meanwhile boosting business for them and making yourself look bad in the process.
    It is very apparent from their response to you they have done nothing wrong, any smart person knows there are only 3 companies that do professional authentication and to only accept game used memorabilia from these companies is highly professional of them.
    Maybe you just need to get laid…your blog is a joke
    I will represent NSA at this point, if they would like for free or maybe trade for some of their great products.
