This one'e been around for a while, but I recently saw another one of these "super rare cards" surface on ebay. I'll show you what I'm talking about here. There "proofs" are just boiled down Topps/Bowman Chrome cards, it's really easy to do and in fact I've done it to a few no namers just to see it it actually works (not selling them of course :D). Anyways, I saw this one here just go for $10 and it just outrages me to see such selfish ebay sellers, willing the exploit the naiveness of new collectors. A sure sign of a "chrome proof" is that the boiled version is actually reversed from that of the original card... a dead giveaway. I'm almost tempted to send the seller a message asking where he got this rare card and if he has any more for sale. PLMK thoughts, opinions, ect. on this subject. Thanks! :D :D

the seller has written the discription vauge enough though that if someone challenged it he could say "I never said it was a pack pulled or company produced card"

And, you can tell it's not a real plate just by the design of it....:)
