Real or Fake Pippen Autographics?

Real or Fake Pippen Autographics?
Both cards look beautiful, but because there are many counterfeits in the public, it might be safe for me to ask for opinion first before deciding whether or not to bid.

(a) http://www.ebay.com/itm/290739289283

(b) http://www.ebay.com/itm/290739290612

Also, look at the stamps - the seller even put on a closer scan of both - they are embossed differently.

What do you think? Do you think that both cards are real or fake? If only one of them is (potentially) real, which one? (a) or (b)?

Thank you so much.

I think they both may be bad copies. Just something seems off on both.
but between the 2.....
PERSONALLY, I believe the second one (B) is a fake.
The gloss is a lil high for those cards.
The auto looks quite a bit off (the S looks more like a Z).

If they are fakes, they are very good ones that someone put a lot of effort into.

I look for career Chicago Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs, Fire, Red Stars, and Sky players in their respective Halls of Fame. Add to that list some personal favorite lifers from past and present rosters, and everything else in my collection is up for trade.

Check the annual. They warn that there are known fakes out there (that also include the stamp). People will go out of their way to fake a high dollar insert.

RE: Real or Fake Pippen Autographics?
Both Pippen's are real, the chipping along the edges of both cards are consistent with typical damage to that product. Also you will note that the blend from the white to red (or vice versa) is even and not choppy. The gloss looks fine, the shine you see is from the flash. As for the stamp, well those can be easily reproduced so I cant really comment on that one.

Overall both Pippen's would be safe to bid on, Ive already seen these a few days ago and looked over them several times, and given the seller's feedback and other high dollar items for sale/sold I wouldn't worry about it.

Looks real to me. It matches the one he signed for me at a card show a while back. But is it worth paying $500 for an auto that you can get in person for $100?

Good question. My guess is that it depends on whether or not you are trying to collect an insert set.
