Huh?? Am I missing something here?


I think the seller means the polybag that UKG sent it back in after grading.

I think realistically it's time to start looking out for a new ebay ID selling his remaining stock

I was thinking the same thing that he if not already will start using another account to sell the other baggies he has.

I really hope whoever has been sold a fake from Jeff and was led to believe it was original gets a full refund soon. By Jeff's lack of effort to come on here its coming across he's not bothered about anyone.
I now wonder if he is serious about opening all the fakes he receives back and keep them out of circulation.

Looking at the two pictures I would say they do.

They look identical to me... right down to the pressure used on the individual letters. Either they were printed at exactly the same time, on the same printer or one is a scan of the other.

Look at the R on 'Eureka' - same on both. Also, look at the R on 'Rd' - different pressure pattern, so I'd suggest the missing bit on the Eureka R is down to pressure on the paper, rather than a damaged/worn R on the machine (Daisy wheel printer maybe).

I'd love to see a massively high def scan of the boxes; you should be able to see tell tale signs of modern printing.

Can't say 100% but the box looks like it might be ok, the address sticker is what concerns me with it having the exact same one as the confirmed fake and the same fading and traits on the ink in the letters that looks identical, all mailers have an individual number so none should be the same :?

I had my doubts about it too, and as ive said I asked Stephen at UKG a couple of times to make sure as I did mention that it had the same address as others. I guess either mine could be the one that the others have had the label copied from or as you say the box is okay but the label could be fake but would that be enough for it to be rejected by UKG as they do grade mailers that have no address on the boxes?

Tbh mate it was the box that made me look twice at the mailer as a whole and had to look very hard at the label and compare it originals, the print on the originals have print that's similar to dot matrix of the 80s

If it's just a case of the label being iffy I could see that getting past the most seasoned collectors, like I said the mailer should have its own number(s) on the box, it could be the original that was copied but considering where it originated from I find it hard to believe

Try and get the best pics you can in natural light of the label and the tape when you have time and will hopefully get to the bottom of it ; )
