I have seen PSA grade factory facsimile autos as real but this is the first I have seen from BGS. Once the buyer figures out what they really bought they will be sad.

mis-flips happen. But I'm a little disappointed with probstein123 for listing it like that. They have to know that the card isn't signed. Yet, right there in the heading is "AUTO"..

i mean technically i don't blame probstein because he labeled it like BGS did but any good card consignor should have realized it was mislabeled. On the other hand any collector should also know that it is mislabeled.

I think you are giving the average collector way too much credit. Most specialize in 1 or 2 areas and know very little about cards as a whole(including myself). Yesterday on another forum I read were a person was complaining that the very high end vintage card they won from an auction house was so mishandled that the PSA case was broken and glued back together. The person never even considered they just got scammed with the old crack and switch card scam.

On the bright side, it looks like the consignor won his own card so the buyer will actually know exactly what they won. See? It all works out in the end.
