So I have had a Jordan RC in a 4 screw screwdown for over 10 years now. Recently looked at it and thought about having it sent to BGS for grading looks very good surface/edge/corners to me, centering is 60/40 or so, so I know thats gonna be a hurdle. However, a buddy of mine has told me that there were a ton of fakes out there. How would one know if what you hold is the 'real McCoy' or not?

Thanks
There are many articles on the fine points out there. The best advice is to purchase a common base card for under $5 somewhere and compare it since no one faked a Bill Cartwright. You could get one of him for a reasonable price, I suggest getting someone from that Bulls team.

Now when comparing the cards, compare the feel and weight of the stock. Also compare the Fleer logos on the front of the card. Fakes are notorious for missing outlines and printing dots on that little logo at the top right on the front of the card.

The usual dead give away for the best counterfeits is the Bulls logo on the back. The eyes should look the same as your cheaper base card of another bulls player. If the eyes of the bull can be made out (pupils and all) then it is probably good, but if the eyes are solid-you have a fake.

The copywright symbol on the back of the card should also be in the same place on both cards. Fakes sometimes have a lower placement of that symbol.
if you send it for grading, would bgs do the same analysis and only grade if they were sure it was authentic?

yes they would but they wouldn't refund your money, so its best to see if you can find out first before submitting it for grading
