I don't get it. Aside from the useless pictures, what's the issue?

It's a scam... maybe a fake PSA holder... the pic of the back is a completely different card, it's an older PSA label than the front picture...

100% Feedback, yes...but I never deal with someone with as few (45) feedbacks as he does...certainly not for a 'big dollar' card.

There's enough clearly legit cards out there that anyone with half a brain should be able to avoid listings like the one the OP mentions.


...of course, if you do only have half a brain...go for it...P.T. Barnum

For those who have read Conrad's "Heart of Darkness", perhaps the seller's user name, Col. Kurtz, might have been a small clue all was not kosher with this offering

You might also notice on the front picture appears that something was whited out on the flip...

So you "bought it"? Why else would he ask you for PayPal gift?

I certainly don't claim to know more than the other members on here. But the card looks legit to me. The flip checks out and there's even pictures of the card from a previous Heritage auction. His previous, positive feedback all seem to be vintage card related as well. I admit, the Paypal gift thing is a little wonky. But, I'm not convinced this is a scam.

Flip aligns differently in the Heritage one, no? And different back holder.
