Card of the Day: Absolute TOTT Tim Hudson Fake Patch
In today's sports card market, a multi-colored patch card of even minor stars can bring in over $100 on eBay. The above Tim Hudson card is an example of such.
The sad thing is that the Hudson card is an obvious fake along with several of the seller's other listings. The seller dmarcus8, a well-known patch faker, has several cards registered within the Fake Patch Registry.
But how do we know this card is fake? Well it is easy.
Take a look to the left of the left of the patch window. It says "Game-Worn Jersey." But with Donruss/Playoff and the Tools of the Trade set, that means a standard jersey swatch. "Game-Worn Prime" would grace the patch window of an actual patch from this set.
