Check that seller’s item photo

Many people know that you shouldn’t buy something online without seeing a photo.  Thats great, but what if the deceptive seller posts a picture that isn’t their own.  If you find a card that you really want to buy check past auctions that have taken place.  It could be possible that the seller stole the photo from another person.  It also is possible that they stole the picture from the card company.  For example, Upper Deck, like other card companies, posts pictures of their products online.  Most of the time, when a company posts pictures of their product they will have their logo across the picture and the serial number on the card may look like this, “xx/100”.  Companies usually don’t show the first two digits of the serial number.  If you see a picture like this in an auction listing, thats not the actual item you will receive.  Here is an example of what a picture from Upper Deck looks like.

Stealing video box breaks

Talk about being low.  This is lower than low.  A short while ago Upper Deck launched something called Diamond Vision.  This allows collectors to video themselves while opening any Upper Deck product and submit it back to Upper Deck where they can be entered into a contest.  Well, it has been confirmed that people have been stealing videos from YouTube and sending them in as their own.  Someone that won a box of 2008 Upper Deck SPx baseball cards stole a video from YouTube.  If you do video box breaks please be careful and check to see who is linking to your videos.  The user name pro HAIR DESIGNER is the one that stole the video.  Upper Deck clearly states that it must be a video that you created.  Here is the video that was stolen.  The person in the video is the true owner and should be awarded the box, their user name is Luke2411.  pro HAIR DESIGNER is the user on Upper Deck that stole the video.
