Lamest Fake Pack Ever
« on: January 04, 2019, 05:45:56 PM »
So in my never ending quest to put together perfect reissue sets, Iíve been opening a bunch of 4th series re-ish packs Iíve picked up over the years. As shown below, I pulled some very nice cards from many of them.

Then I opened a pack and to my amazement, it contained no gum and...wait for it....6 ANS 1 cards....with the stickers PEELED!

Iíve only gotten these packs from supposedly trustworthy sources, but it was only one pack so I donít really care. Still, sad that someone would actually fake a $3 re-issue pack.

Wow.  It is amazing that someone would actually take the time and effort for something that is barely worth anything.  it is bad enough worrying about buying rarer packs and series 1 Ludlows that could be fakes, now I have to inspect reissue packs????

Seriously, I have a many boxes of reissues, I am good with assuming they are legit.
Still looking for Series 17

I guess I'll put ANS 2 cards in an ANS 1 pack. Seems like a good idea.

Tough to reseal the foil packs though. Thatís exactly why they started using them in the 90s.
