A & G = Prime Target For Scammers

Because of its popularity, Allen & Ginter will always be a prime target for scammers.  Up until a few years ago, people could use a flashlight to see what was inside of a Rip Card, then Topps got wise and decided to place the mini card inside a black wrapper.  But with this set having so many different variations and parallels it will always be easy to fool uneducated collectors.

2010 Allen & Ginter has only been out for a couple of days, but altered cards have already found their way to eBay.  Take a look at this card:

Yes, this is a card about the revolving door.  Its not the most exciting thing in the world, but its an invention that you can see all around.  This card was not hand-numbered by the good people at Topps.  Instead it was numbered by some nut who claims its a one-of-one because this card got caught in an actual revolving door.

I’m not sure what the story is with this one.  The seller claims it came from the pack like this.  Its very possible for a card to get stuck in a machine, but of coarse they say its a one-of-one.  What do you think happened to this card?

Please be careful when purchasing a “rare” Allen & Ginter card.  Its very important to find out if Topps made it or not.
