Does CGC Cards certify rebacked cards or clipped Beta Cards?
Rebacked and clipped cards are not eligible for certification by CGC Cards. In most cases, rebacked cards are produced by sanding the face of one card and the back of another and gluing them together. This is always done with less valuable cards to create a forgery of a more expensive card. Clipped Beta cards have had the corners made more rounded to imitate an Alpha card. These cards are not eligible for CGC Cards certification.
