So this was the thread I pulled up via Google that got me to join this site.

There are a handful of us still out here with complete sets (plus some additional cards) that we all put together back in '91 after returning from the Gulf War. The trick was those of us in a relationship with another military member received enough cards to trade out for a complete set.

My wife & I (girlfriend at the time) put together such a set and promptly put it in a safe.

Fast forward Twenty Some Odd Years (damn...) to the age of FaceBook. I am a member of a FB group for our old Air Base (Myrtle Beach AFB, closed in '92). We have a thread that started out as a "remember when" kind of thing regarding all the activity surrounding the quests for complete sets. Turns out none of us have any idea how much these things are worth.

Apparently, from what I read, there are counterfeits floating around, I can pretty much guarantee that our set as well as the others that I traded with are legit. Is there something we need to do to prove they are legit? Other than all the stuff we saved (we actually saved all the wrappers and the gum, though I think and hope the gum was discarded or chewed back in the early '90's).

Thanks in advance.

The first fake they mention is easy to spot, the others not so easy.

Are you kidding? That's a great article !

One of many that I wrote for PSA several years back. They were nice enough to remove my name from each and every one of them...just because they got a little ticked off. Needless to say I was also banned from everything PSA, to include submitting cards for grade.

For those rarity collectors, there are also legit silver foil stamps. I've only seen about a dozen or so and have two in my collection.

+1. You also have to compare the logo to known authentic examples under high power magnification to be really sure--I did that in the early '90's, and really nice examples were few and far between. Still have the Griffey, Jr., Frank Thomas, Juan Gonzalez, Bonds, and Travis Fryman, but unfortunately missed the Chipper Jones rookie!

Best to all,

Larry
