Shame on you for suggesting that people should take some responsibility in knowing more about what they are buying! That is just so unreasonable.

I have no issue with that at all. Collectors should have as much knowledge as they can before spending a few hundred or thousand dollars on a baseball card. Something as simple as knowing when to avoid a specific Ebay seller or passing on a deal that seems too good to be true could have helped avoid situations I've read about on this board.

And I know at least one person who got burned on a 52T who would have avoided it had he taken an hour to learn the basics of how to spot a bad one. Not a one off situation either, a few years back when I was looking at buying one there were several questionable ones on ebay, in what appeared to be PSA holders.

My saying is "Only collect what you can authenticate yourself."

Though I thought the main point of third part graders was to identify trimming and give an independent judgment of condition grade, something that is hard for the buyer to do online or via mail order. Certainly, authentication can be a part of that.

I still stand behind my initial comment. I'm not out to chastise PSA or AH. The point was, if someone were to come along and introduce a new holder or service that would prevent most of these fraud cases, they could challenge the commonly-held understanding that PSA would always be the most-reputable and command the most $$$$.

It may never happen, but I think there's a potential opportunity if someone were to figure it out.
