This is going to blow some of your minds, especially you high end rookie collectors out there.
I was browsing some sports card forums today and saw something I thought I would never see, although it doesn’t surprise me. The “holy grail” of 2011 Topps Inception cards, the 1/1 Cam Newton autographed rookie, had been sold on eBay. When the buyer received the card, he noticed something a little strange on the corner.
After further inspection, the person who sold him this card for $1300 had taken a black sharpie and attempted (poorly) at coloring in the corners of this card as it may had been chipped or had a bum corner coming out of the pack.
Why someone would do this to a card is unfathomable, especially a card of that value. Obviously he was trying to get an extra buck. From what I understand it’s some idiot kid. This same idiot kid runs group breaks as well on eBay.
Sports Card Blog recommends you never buy anything from nicksellsgamesncards on eBay or iamboxbreaks as this seller can’t be trusted for obvious reasons.
It’s a shame that such a great card will forever be tarnished by someone taking a sharpie to the corners.
You can see the buyer airing this information and his complaints at this link right here.
