How to Spot a Fake Rickey Henderson 1980 Topps RC #482

Rickey Henderson is one of best players to ever play the game.  His 1980 Topps rookie card #482 is one of the most popular rookie cards a collector can have.  Below are some tips that will help you spot a fake version of this card.

  • Take a look at the words “Rickey Henderson” at the top of the card on the front.  A fake version of this card will have a name that is made of many small dots instead of solid black ink on an original.
  • On a fake Henderson rookie, a green and white dot pattern will make up the background of the “A’s” logo.  On a real version, the green background is a solid color.
  • A counterfeit Henderson rookie will have a broken circle around the © logo on the back.
