’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.
