How To Spot A Fake Patrick Roy 1986-87 O-Pee-Chee #53 Rookie Card

Here are a few tips on what to look for in a counterfeit Patrick Roy 1986-87 O-Pee-Chee #53 rookie card:

  • Look closely at the O-Pee-Chee logo in the top left corner.  If you notice that the black lines in the oval and text are dotted, that’s a good sign of a counterfeit.
  • Locate Patrick Roy’s name on the front of the card.  On many counterfeits the white and blue bleed together.  Its important to note that authentic examples can have bleeding of these colors too.  The consistency of the two types of bleeding are different though.
  • The 1986-87 O-Pee-Chee Hockey set has blue colored backs.  Counterfeit Patrick Roy rookies tend to have alternative shades of blue.  Simply take a common card from that set which would have no reason to be counterfeited and compare it to your Roy rookie.  If your Roy rookie card is authentic, both backs should match.
  • Due to a printing error, a tiny black dot appears on the front.  This dot can be found directly above Roy’s helmet on the top white border.  Its a small detail that counterfeiters miss.  I wouldn’t trust a copy that doesn’t contain this dot.
