Is this a common mistake by card companies? - bakerman8419 - 11-05-2012 02:24 PM

Placing "PRIME" patches into base jersey versions?

Example:

Base versions with PRIME patches

and

PRIME version with PRIME patches

Anyone see other examples of this? Is this common or uncommon?

Nice looking cards there, but I don't know if it's a mistake or not.

I'm not sure if it's common, but I have run into similar things while chasing Palmer cards once in a while. I'm pretty sure I 've even seen a base version with a better jersey piece than the prime version before. I always just think that the card companies just don't pay attention sometimes when making their products.

Any chance you think of being fake?

Oh definitely that thought crosses my mind sometimes. If I do get that uneasy feeling, I usually just drop what my max bid would have been. If I can pick it up cheap, fake or real, it's good. Otherwise someone else can take it, no sweat. Kind of on the fence with the card you showed. Doesn't scream fake... But I'm just an amateur...

So if the regular version has prime patches then its fake?
