I began noticing these obvious forgeries months ago on Ebay, but with Ebay heavily-populated with forgeries, I really didn't think much of exposing them until I began observing them in numbers and that's when I knew I had to expose them.
Immediately below is a link to Part 1 of "Derek Jeter Forged Counterfeit 1994/1995 Upper Deck Baseball Cards."
For those who do not know Derek's autograph, I can understand people buying these because of the Upper Deck COA on the back of the card, and unfortunately, that's what people are purchasing.
They are purchasing the back of the card.
The source of these counterfeit cards picked a card that they knew would sell because of the UD COA on the back of the card.
I have in my possession one of Derek Jeter forged/counterfeit 1994-1995 Upper Deck cards.
The moment I picked it up, I knew immediately it was counterfeit.
The card itself is very rigid (stiff) and heavier.
It is a 100% counterfeit card.
This is serious stuff.
One seller has sold at least two dozen of these forged Derek Jeter counterfeit cards.
Make no mistake; these are counterfeit cards.
Please note also that I am investigating other forged/counterfeit cards.
The source was clever enough to counterfeit cards that have the COA on the reverse of the cards.
These are obvious forged/counterfeit cards. More on this card at a later date.
I will be posting a blog on the below "Koufax" cards also in the very near future.
Just a quick note on the reverse of the Sandy Koufax 2000 SP Authentic counterfeit. Immediately below is an example of a counterfeit.
Observe how close the "Sandy Koufax" is to the outside border.
Before we continue on with the forged/counterfeit Jeter 1995 Upper Deck card, just a quick note below on the Koufax forged/counterfeit 2000 SP Authentic cards.
Not only are the forgeries laughable, observe the back of the card...
Getting back to the Derek Jeter forged counterfeit cards...
Immediately below are both cards: The forged counterfeit Derek Jeter card and the authentic Derek Jeter signed card.
The one on the left is the forged counterfeit and the one on the right the authentic autographed card.
This is the back of both cards. The counterfeit is on the right.d
Here are graphic comparisons of the two cards.
1. The holograms on the front of the cards.
2. The holograms on the back of the cards.
3. Professional Baseball Logo.
4. Back Of The Card Micro Comparisons.
5. And, of course, the front of card where it reads "Derek Jeter."
Observe the obvious bouncing of the letters in "Derek" and, of course, the raised "R" in Jeter.
Looking at all of the above comparisons, the differences are glaring!!!
Observe the fuzziness on the counterfeit cards....
I am certain they are collectors out there who own this forged Derek Jeter counterfeit card, and I can only hope they find this blog and take action.
Now you know how to avoid them.
