Real or Fake Grant Hill Autographics?
Somehow I came across this closed Grant Hill Autographics card listing when surfing around the internet....

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1996-97-SKYBOX-A...true&rt=nc

Do you think that it's real or fake?

- Stadium Club Co-Signers (1997-98, 1998-99)
- Topps Autographs (1997-98 to 1999-00)
- HOF on-card autographs, and anything that catches my eyes

The card appears to have the SkyBox stamp on it and the printing looks right on the card. Why do you think it could be a fake?

At a first glance, I feel that it's probably real too. The card color looks right, the stamp is there.
But I know that there are so many counterfeits on the market for this set. With improving technology these days, I am curious.

Its real. Looks just like mine (which got graded an 8.5 by Beckett).

The color fading from white to blue is good, autograph is consistent with most of his other signatures that year, and chipping along the edges is consistent with the condition sensitive set.

I've never actually seen a fake autographics card, always hear about them, but I've never seen one

Its my belief that history is a wheel Inconstancy is my very essence says the wheel Rise up on my spokes if ya like but dont complain wen ya cast back down into the depths Good times pass away but then so do the bad Mutability is our tragedy but its also our hope The worst of times like the best are always passin away
