No one has said that ALL the errors are faked

Red herring; nobody claimed that anyone said that.

I think you miss the point.  The point is that the foil CAN be removed and copies CAN (and have) been faked. To varying degrees, depending on the extent of the degradation of whatever embossing process was originally used.  

As stated earlier, these books are not embossed. The issue is not (and never has been) that the foil can be removed and that these can be faked. No one, throughout the entire course of the discussion, has disputed that. The issue is whether or not they can be faked in a manner that will fool CGC, which was your original claim.

And I know for a fact that CGC has graded faked ones because I know someone who sacrificed a couple dozen copies or so of what he thought were good "candidates", and made 6 of them and got them ALL graded over a year or so period.

I want to make sure I understand you correctly: you know...for a fact, meaning you can prove it...that someone has slipped by faked copies of the Venom black through CGC? Did you notify CGC at the time that someone was defrauding them and collectors? If not, why not? Who is this person who is defrauding people? Where are these faked graded copies?

 If you have proof, show it. You have a duty and an obligation to out those who are cheating others if you have direct knowledge of it. Otherwise, impugning the ability of CGC to tell a fake from a genuine on their own message board is questionable, at best.

This. This is significantly different than saying they just got the label wrong. (:

Oh okay, so now you're acknowledging that the "error", can in fact be replicated.  Glad we agree on that now.  However....

First, you don't know what I have or have not notified CGC of.

Second, I have no "duty" or "obligation" to do anything.  

Third, this was years ago.

Fourth, CGC is far from perfect, and are subject to criticism, suggestions, etc from their customers like any business is.

Latsly, you have all the "proof" you're going to get, so consider yourself duly warned.  But in case you missed it from the two other times I said it when the topic became relevant with the sale of that sketchy looking raw copy on ebay- buyer beware on copies of that book.  (thumbsu

YES:foryou:

Be positive and don't get frustrated by better type-rs!

I just want someone to positively verify that they have seen or peeled the foil. I actually think the video i saw a while ago, did show the foil off, If it really is a glue issue, it could be a leftover pattern on the book that could be similar, depending on where the glue was strong on the book. If that is the defect I really don't see how CGC could ever be able to tell the difference? If that is the case someone has been making a fortune slowly making these and submitting them. I wonder if there has been a slow, but constant CGC sub of this RARE mistake? If it can be a manufactured error then it is a crime and CGC should stop recognizing it as a special book. Should say "CAN BE MANIPULATED" and should be 50 bucks,tops!

As I have already said, several times now, these have been faked. The issue is not whether they have been faked, but whether they have been faked  in a manner that will fool CGC,

That is correct. That is why "Did you notify CGC at the time that someone was defrauding them and collectors?" is in the form of a question, rather than a statement...a question which you have yet to answer.

I want this on record: you, Jaydogrules, are publicly declaring that you have no duty or obligation to out cheating when you encounter it, and do not care that other people are defrauded by such cheating. Is that correct?

Does time change the facts?

Absolutely, and you will find no one claiming otherwise. But criticizing them for mistakes, and willfully covering up fraud which you say FOR A FACT is occurring, are two entirely different things.

So, you come onto the CGC board, accuse a seller of selling a "fake" copy of Venom #1 black, accuse CGC of being incapable of detecting faked copies of same, offer absolutely no proof of any of this...and you're complicit in fraudulent activity by refusing to notify anyone that you know...for a fact, mind...that someone successfully slipped faked copies by CGC, and sitting back while others are defrauded by said fake copies.

Wow.

It's not a "glue" issue. Your logic doesn't follow: if these books can be faked in the manner that you and Jaydogrules are claiming, then they are damaged books, and should be worth little to nothing....not "50 bucks", tops or not.

Yes...I am one of them. The issue isn't that people have claimed that people have manipulated this book. The issue is that people have claimed that people have manipulated this book in a manner that will fool CGC.
