Good news to hear they go caught. The bad news is there are probably many out there that still think what they have is real. Yeah it's funny too because when I talk to family about this story and others like it, they are in the same thinking that a coa means it's not fake. But people need to be educated about this kind of thing if we want to keep our hobby legit. I know I have reported at least 3 frauds on eBay, they too had hundreds if not thousands of pos feedback. Who knows, maybe I might have helped in this case? I know I saw another story recently about a $22k pair of supposed game used Jordan's from his freshman year at UNC. They were authenticated by a reputable source, it was a reputable auction house, and yet it took a ballot from tat years team to clarify that they were not the same that the team used in EVERY game that year. Stories like that one make me worry about the future of the hobby.
