’62 Topps Printing Plate Scam

I Am Joe Collector spotted a great scam taking place on eBay yesterday and I thought I’d dig a little deeper on the subject.  He found someone claiming they owned the actual printing plates from 1962 Topps Baseball and Football.  This person is attempting to sell each individual plate for $60.00 to $80.00.  If those were real plates and/or proofs, they’d be selling for a lot more money than that.  So far it looks as if only one person fell for their little scam.  I e-mailed the seller and asked where they obtained these items, and they claim to have purchased them at the Topps sale of 1989.  Topps did sell a lot of items from their “Vault” back in ’89, but these were not on the list.  In addition to that, these plates/proofs don’t even come with a COA from The Topps Company.

This is suppose to be a plate of Mike Mercer from ’62 Topps Football.  Don’t you love the authentic label they slapped on there?  Any idiot with a label maker could do this.

This is a nice PSA look alike grading holder.  If its too good to be true, it probably is.

Pulls/Promos/Pickups at the ’09 National

One of my favorite things about the National are the promos provided by many of the manufacturers and various other dealers.  I obtained most of my promos from Press Pass and Panini, but did pick up a few from Razor and Dave & Adams.  In addition to the promos below, I also received everything that was stated to be in the VIP package.  Click on each photo for a closer look.

Razor Promo Set – Rich Franklin, The Kardashian Sisters, Donovan Tate, Johnny Chan, and an ’08 Razor Metal Michel Inoa.

These are all promos from D & A, Press Pass, and Razor – Aaron Hicks ’08 Metal Plate, Brett Wallace Freedom Cardboard, Tim Beckham Freedom Cardboard, David Cooper Freedom Cardboard, LeSean McCoy ’09 Press Pass Legends #’ed/5, and I pulled a Red Ink auto of Ozzie Newsome as a promo from Press Pass

I pulled some really nice low-numbered cards at the National while obtaining some of the promos.  Everyone got excited at the Press Pass booth when I pulled this Mike Alstott signed printing plate #’ed 1/1.  This is the second 1/1 I’ve pulled during a National.  I also picked up an Elston Howard 2000 UD Yankees Legends jersey and a Lou Gehrig ’07 UD SP Legendary Cuts 1 of 1 filmstrip piece.
