Beware Of The Fake Mariano Rivera Rookie Cards!!!!
Loyal ’30-YOC’ reader Matt shared this article with me the other day and I had to do my duty and pass it over to you to read too.
I have read the story 3 or 4 times now and I am still shocked. I’d heard about cards being doctored-up before, but I never considered it would occur with cards that are still relatively affordable – and modern. 1952 Mantle makes more sense to me – but a 1992 Bowman baseball card?? Color me naive…
Anyway, I am more than appalled by this story. And I am also very, very happy that I do as much ‘homework’ as I do when buying older cards.
Hopefully this has not happened to any of us!!!
