You may notice the garish “Diamond Edition 1 of 1” logo printed near the bottom. Basically, some company called Masterpieces Collectibles bought a bunch of commons, defaced the front of the cards with an embossed silvery logo, then sold each one with a “certificate” stating that they would not deface another copy of the exact same card.
Wait, no. No it does not. That seems stupid. And I feel pretty stupid for buying this card.
The eBay auction stated that this was given away at a show. In the past, card companies would give out variations of their standard cards, usually printed with the name of the show and an edition number, i.e. 1/1 or 6/10. Other than the foil stamping, these were pretty much the same cards you’d pull from a pack.
But this card wasn’t even modified by Upper Deck, and I doubt it was given away. It is some sort of unlicensed aftermarket modification by a company calling itself “Masterpiece Collectibles.”
What a scam!
Maybe I should take all my old Pro Set cards and stamp them “Puck Junk 1 of 1 Edition.” And then I would have found a way to make Pro Set cards even more worthless.
