Hey folks! So i've seen a few of these Reggie Bush RCs pop up in the past year or so and was curious if you guys thought it would be worth it to send it in to authenticate it? Since the Topps sticker system is jacked up & not really reliable, or last I heard anyway. Any advice? All is appreciated!

Fake.

With all the hype around Bush... it would have been advertised if he signed stickers like that.
I completely agree, this would have been used on advertising for the product and shown up in Beckett if it were real.
isnt there usually a Congratulations / coa for the auto on the back?... maybe a promo .... maybe a fake
dont know about this years .... but usually there is some kinda lighter box printed on auto cards that sit behind the sticker .... may be wrong about that

1st answer, NO for 2006 there was no congratulations or COA other than the sticker with the number on the back of the card.
2nd answer, YES there was a box that was lighter than the regular card for the sticker to be placed in. If you look at any other autograph from the set it's obvious as the box was ever so slightly larger than the sticker.

Here is an example to show what I am referring to.

Thus the odds are the card in the original post is a forgery.
I did an eBay search and found an interesting flip...First auction (eBay Item # 232183323616) ended on December 27th for around $20, then on January 27th the EXACT same card sold (eBay Item #152400586025) for around $40. I know it's the exact same card because looking at the bid history of the first auction, the buyer was the same as the seller in the 2nd auction.
This alone is not a big deal, just interesting. However it does make me wonder if there really are more than 1 or just the same one that keeps flipping from person to person.
Thanks a lot folks!!! Appreciate the help!

I love the use of the obscure Reggie McNeal as your example.
