Poll wrap-up: Return a counterfeit card?
It's almost unanimous, 9 of 10 folks voted to return the 1971 Bazooka of debatable authenticity. One said to destroy the card, which would protect any "downstream" collectors from buying something questionable. I completely understand and would've considered it more seriously for a cheaper card. (Apparently, my "take one for the team" cutoff is somewhere below $20.)
To the card seller's credit, he did accept my return and process it quickly. This whole deal's just one card transaction in an ocean of buying and selling, but it's the closest I've been to a 1971 Bazooka's numbered proof set #5. Quoting many a baseball team, "just wait 'til next year!"
