Nice list.  I remember back in the early 90's, the primary card store I used to shop at had this guy come in, trying to sell a Wayne Gretzky O-Pee-Chee rookie......At the time I was only about 12, but I knew this was a huge deal so I couldn't help but eavesdrop on what was going down.  The guy gave the store owner the Gretzky rookie to inspect, asking what he could give him for it.  Now this card shop dealer really, really, really, knew his stuff.  He was no joke.  The dealer thoroughly went over the card.  It was intense watching him work, then he finally looked up at the guy and told him "sorry, I'm not interested"...and simply left it at that.  This guy had no idea what he was getting himself into LOL, he was like "well, why not?"  "It's a Gretzky rookie"....and blah, blah, blah, then the dealer told him, "because it's a counterfeit Gretzky rookie."  The guy totally freaked out, it almost seemed sincere, and I wanted to believe that he truly didn't know he had a fake card, but he probably was a con artist.  He just happened to walk into the wrong card store that day.
