The items were then cut up into small pieces and inserted into cards. The dealer claims that the companies should have knew they were fake, due to the fact that the jerseys were being sold far below market value, however no charges have been filed against the companies.
As for me, I'm an autograph collector and don't have a whole lot of relic cards. Maybe less three or four at the most, but I am concerned about these "fakes" getting pass the buyers at the card companies. It's all about trust and credibility when it comes to sports memorabilia. That's why relics and autographed inserts generally sell for premium. The buyer trusts that the company behind the card has done everything imaginable to ensure it's authenticity. If customers feel like this trust is broken, they will leave.
