Embroidered Patches

Have you seen these up for sale on eBay?  There are a ton of these embroidered patches up for sale with logos of sports teams.  They may seem harmless, but many people buy them to create their own patch cards.  Once the person obtains a patch like this, they will cut it up and insert them into cards and try to pass them off as real patch cards.  It is very important that you check the feedback of the seller to see what their record is like.  They could have 100% positive feedback, but they may be buying a bunch of these patches.  Be sure to check the numbering of the card and the condition of the patch window.  If the window has damaged edges, that may be a clear sign that they altered the card.
