Default Do you guys think this is authentic and unaltered?

30 day returns so I pulled the trigger.

It looks good to me. But always hard to tell if trimmed.

That card has really wavy borders and is trimmed in my opinion. I have a feeling that it has also been bleached, as it is very fresh looking, but has some super light staining still evident on back.

Bad news I'm afraid. The seller bought a nice authentic card and cracked it out, hoping to get someone to pay more for it thinking it might get a number. Here it is graded - it sold 9/24/2017 on eBay for $282.

Happy to help. I bet you can send the seller a message and ask him to cancel the sale without even sending it as he has 30 day returns - can save the shipping at least. You might also start a thread about him too...

I say have 100 people email him and let him know. Quick question - do you know for sure that he was the person that bought the card last year for $282? What if he bought it for $400 and is trying to flip it?

That is a valid point Fred, I have no idea who bought it for $282 in September, so it could well have changed hands in the interim.
