Yes within the last few years there were complete sets made by "Vipercards". They have been actively sold on eBay bith in set and single form, but stated as reprints. I am not sure of the identifing marking on these cards but I beleive a trained eye can recognze them?
Yo, Jason:I purchased a reprint set of these cards on E-bay and they are produced by Viper Cards. I wanted to have a set for comparison purposes so I could see just how close to the real thing they are. As someone else has remarked, the print is not very good compared to the real thing. Any time I see a high grade card available for the 51/52 Parkhurst set that I still need I check the scan and also the feedback of the seller who has the card listed. If you found three sets I'd be extremely cautious. Ted
I agree--if a seller has 3 complete 1951 Parkhurst sets for sale, I would be cautious. It's not out of the ordinary to see a complete set, but not 3 at once! 105 cards almost 60 years old are not easy for anyone to find. Now, if the seller is well known in the hockey card industry, you can usually bid without fear. But if you aren't sure, check with some of the people on this forum before bidding. You can also email the seller for more info on these cards.
I figured that eventually people would start counterfeiting cards and the PSA / SGC holders that they are sold in. I NEVER buy cards, PSA or otherwise, from anyone on eBay that just signed up & has no feedback. That, to me, is the biggest red flag of them all.
I do have another question about these PSA holders. I received 3 boxes back from PSA last week, but not one of the holders had black trim on the outside of them. Is this something new fom PSA that I haven't seen, or is that planning on the scammers part?
