Re-Sealed/Fake Panini Flawless Basketball Case Sold By DACardworld

Sports Card Radio has come out with a video detailing what is pretty clearly a fake case of Flawless Basketball that was sold by DACardworld. Not good at all.

Take a look:

    This does all seem really odd that some individually numbered cards were sold thru an app mostly used in China called Card Hobby months ago, then reportedly D&A maybe purchased this case from some buyer then sold it to the breaker from the video that is in China,who does a break where those same numbered cards show up.

    Either those cards earned a decent amount of airline miles being used in some scam that saw them travel around the world or maybe Panini doube printed some stuff. 🤷‍♂️

    Well, the one patch is identical so it's highly unlikely the card was double-printed. And the plastic seal is off from a normal sealed box.

    I watched the video on my phone (mostly just listened) so I really didn't get a good look at the patch. If it wasn't Panini,which I wouldn't put past them with their history, then it was definitely something fishy.

    I'd probably give D&A the benefit of the doubt here when everything off about this story seems to be happening in/around China, they just happen to have sold a box to a buyer there.

    i have quite a few unopened boxes, not cases. I generally steer away from the expensive stuff. The two most recently that I paid over $200 for were two 1987 Leaf boxes. One came from a dealer in the 70's and the other was purchased by the guy in 1987 and he had held on to it. Both boxes and packs looked gem mint, no wear at all.

    The rest of my unopened were purchased when the cards were generally worth nothing. Like 1987 OPC. I picked up 7 boxes from Kruk for $125 about 10 years ago. Bought 8 jumbo cello boxes from a guy in Florida of 1991 and 1990 fleer basektball. got them for about $10 each, maybe less. But there had no been a run on the 1990 fleer. I think the jordan were going for $75 each for 10's.

    I would need to know the back ground on the case before I paid a lot.

    Work hard and you will succeed!!

    Sealed cases used to have a premium over loose boxes. After this potential mess and the Pokemon case, that may not be the case anymore. I left the high end box market when prices skyrocketed and mainly buy the lower end boxes like Donruss or Leaf. It safer in the hobby ghetto than in the hobby Beverly Hills.
