How To Spot A Fake Greg Maddux 1986 ProCards Pittsfield Cubs Card

A key card that any Greg Maddux collector can add to his or her collection is his 1986 ProCards Pittsfield Cubs MiLB card.  Valued at $70-$100, this is one of the earliest cards to feature the 2014 Hall of Fame inductee.

BE ON ALERT FOR COUNTERFEITS!  They’ve been making the rounds.

Here is an example of an authentic card:

ProCards were cheaply manufactured, which resulted in a minor defect in the printing of his last name.  The “DD” in his last name are slightly cut off at the bottom.  Every authentic card has the same defect.

Here is an example of a counterfeit card:

Not only is the font different, but the “DD” in his last name are completely in tact.  The “DD” on an authentic example have flat bottoms, where on the counterfeit you can see a curve.

Phillies Prospect Auto Contest! – NOW CLOSED

Anyone remember this dude?  If this were 2004 you’d be going nuts right now.  This contest is for a Greg Golson 2004 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects Chrome Auto.  Greg Golson was a top prospect to pull at the time.  Unfortunately this Round #1 draft pick didn’t live up to the hype.  He still plays though.  The last I heard he was with the New Britain Bees.  Good luck!!!
