It's not a counterfeit operation. You can tell the difference because the card stock used to make the cards is noticeably cheaper in quality. The cards, when held in hand come off as very fragile. Also, none of the VZs have any gloss on them like their American counterparts. Topps made them to take advantage of the growing popularity of baseball in Venezuela. Those are the #1 ways to tell the difference between a VZ Topps card and an American Topps card.

Now, if you're talking about the '67s, oh ya, those are counterfeit, IMO.

As of now I'm two cards short. I messed up my master list and deleted a card I don't have, so I need the '59 Bruton and the '68 Aaron. I have a lead on the Bruton, but the Aaron is gonna be my white whale. I've only ever seen one on eBay and I was offered to purchase another one through the yahoo vz group, but it was a psa 6 and they wanted mid-hundreds for it and that's way outside my budget at the moment.

Any info on these being counterfeit would be greatly appreciated. Don't have any just trying to add a little knowledge. I did have a Joe DiMaggio Retirado and I could easily see it as being a fantasy card with the horrible picture quality. The one I had was in both SGC(X2) and PSA slabs.
