Hadn't seen those. Are you sure they're not originals?

No they are not originals. That seller copies anything they can find on the internet and sells it.

EDIT: Bob helped me on materials to use when making custom cards/items and people like the one stealing his stuff really irritated him.

Thanks for calling attention to this. If I'd stumbled across those cards, I might have thought they were the real things.

I think I bought one last year - before I knew about Mr. Lemke's.

Is there any chance it could have just been a resell of the original?

Not from that seller. Like we complain about some sellers on this forum the one in the link get complained about over on the BO forum. Another give away is look at the prices. That person sells stuff for $3-4 each and Bob never sold stuff at those prices. Another give away is the card stock they are on. That seller uses greeting card stock and Bob used 2 layers to get his desired affect and a much nicer card.

They look like very poor copies from looking at the listings, Bob's are very clear and well printed.

This looks terrible:

Well, the one I have is a 1967 Topps format of Koufax that matches the image shown on Mr. Lemke's site. Comparing it to the 1965 Spahn I just purchased via this thread's links, the quality is the same - though, under a magnifying glass, I can see the layering a little better on the Koufax.

Anyway, I hope my Koufax is legit - see what you think:

There is really no way of knowing from a picture. If you know what you are doing you can use any decent picture and make a decent card from it. I know I have made a few custom cards from pictures of custom cards a fellow member on here designed. If you make a high gloss Tiffany style custom card you can actually improve upon the image you copied.

Default Lemke customs

I'm just waiting for the ones I ordered to arrive. I got the 1952 Topps Paul Pettit, and the 1954 Bowman and Topps Charley Pride cards. I can't wait to see them in person.
