Beware of fake PSA slabbed items

Here is a good example of an eBay scammer. It's a sure bet someone would pay for this item, get a box of nothing and the seller would disappear.

If you look closely, you can see the "Babe Ruth signed card" is not actually inside the PSA slab, it has been placed on top of it. It appears the PSA label is also sitting on top of the plastic.

I have also seen this trick pulled with slabbed CGC comics. It's probably a safe bet it has been done with coins as well.

It's a jungle out there. As always, caveat emptor!
