You can see the case has been tampered with because the borders are heavily frosted.

The cards do not match the images. The real Gehrig is very off-centered left to right.

if the pictures were more clear would the "tampering" be visually evident?

Likely not in the images; again, holders have different levels of frosting. OfferUp is intended to be a local site to facilitate in-person sales, right? Easier to analyze the level of frosting (resealed slab) in hand. Also worth it to scan the Cert Number with the PSA app and try to transfer ownership of the card on PSA's inventory system before shelling out the dough. If the card is already registered and the person you're buying from can not release it, it could be stolen or faked. The bar code should also work.
You can also tell them that you will buy it on the contingency that they send it back to PSA for a reholder and will pay their additional fees *IFF* (if and only if) PSA validates it by slabbing it in the new lighthouse label. If they balk at sending it in to PSA, you have your answer.

Neither the slabs or cards match the previous auction. On the slab, look t the red boarder and spacing between text/barcode on the PSA label. Then look at the borders and cut of each card (especially the Gehrig). They are very different

Default Slabs

A collector I know traded a 1933, and 1934 authentic raw Gehrig's Goudy's for a two PSA 9 Jordan RC, (not the latest labels)--turns out both Jordan cards were fake enclosed in fake PSA holders, although both had PSA label SSN--which were pirated-

I personally owned the 1934 Goudy at one time and offered to purchase but the collector said the trade was better for Him-okay I said!

After the fact the red flag in my opinion the guy sent the Jordan's for inspection before he sent the Gehrig's--- the deal was made outside Ebay where the Gehrig's were listed! Just one example of many different collectables faked for the quick dollars.

Default Should we be concerned?

Are the fake cases a real problem?

So what happened with the seller at the end - Did you try and discuss the problem with them?

Yes, I told him of the issue and he acted ignorant to it. Said he bought them from another seller and felt they were real. I will follow up to make sure the posting gets removed.

Concerned, sure. There is a lot of fraud in this hobby/business. Do your due diligence before making a purchase anywhere, and always use PayPal goods & services when paying online.
