Fake David Ortiz Jumbo Patch?

Tuesday, March 11th, 2008

Tell me what you think about these David Ortiz 2007 Topps Sterling Jumbo Swatches #’d 10/10.
The World Series Patch is on eBay right now (See Auction here).

I still have some doubts that this is a fake patch. There are two sets of Ortiz Jumbo Swatches in 2007 Topps Sterling, each #’d to ten. Example:

David Ortiz 3David Ortiz 4

However, as you’ll notice the pictures on the cards are different in the two sets. Now is it possible that Topps mistakenly used the same card template in both of the 10/10 cards? Well, we’ve already seen their quality control in this set. So the jury is still out in my eyes. I don’t want to jump to any conclusions. What do you guys think?

2007 Exquisite Football is hot off the presses. In case you didn’t know, Exquisite Football is like the Rolls Royce of football products. Since I can’t afford to buy a box myself, I figured the least I could do is compile a list of the breaks on youtube so you can see what it’s all about. If you see a card you like, check the eBay links. They might be up for sale right now.
