86 fleer jordan sticker rp?
I have two copies of the 86 fleer michael jordan sticker card. One is graded a 7 by PSA, and the other was bought ungraded from a collector show. When I look at the two cards side by side the authentic one looks a little brighter in the front and has a brighter background in the back. Do people really fake this card like the 86 rookie card because I am debating on sending it into BGS.

People will create fake cards for any card that has decent value, especially high graded value. That Fleer sticker of Jordan has seen some pretty big numbers in terms of high graded value. So it wouldn't surprise me if there were fakes being made.
A lot of fakes are easily distinguishable with a small magnifier like a jewelers loop. Just carefully look at how the images and words look printed on each card to see if the printing process looks different. In the case of the sticker card, look carefully at the edges where the sticker would be peeled to see if they appear to be cut the same way.

Stickers always intrigue me because of how many people just stick them on something, like I did as a child in the 1970s. How many are left? It's tough to tell.

post a scan if possible. People will reproduce ANYTHING that will sell.

Usually counterfeits will be darker and less clear, sometimes foggy or pixelated.

I'd send it in to be graded just to be safe.
