Lou Gehrig Fake from Topps??
The material is completely wrong from the era in which Gehrig played...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/LOU-GEHRIG-Bat-K...53e958110c

Not sure if it came from Topps like this, or the guy altered it.. But if you have that huge of a card... Why mess with it?

Not a fake but really really really really really really really really bad quality control from Topps. TOPPS screwed that one up EXACTLY like they screwed this one up....

It only says the bat knob was used by Cobb on the back of the card.....not the jersey....look at it again

RE: Lou Gehrig Fake from Topps??
With issues like this coming up more more on higher end products as well as issues with ebay sellers faking patch cards I think that Topps or any other company should start taking pictures of any mem card and retaining it in there records with each product. This would help in two ways

1) If they are taking a picture of a card they can catch an obvious error
2) If a consumer on ebay questions a patch on a card they can verify that in fact the patch pictured is the patch or swatch that was present at the time the card was packed out.


We does everyone else think?

Nice idea, but too much leg work for Topps... Who does not really care.

As shown in the Tribute relic (bench seat) screw up.
