just wondering if anyone has seen or heard of counterfeit hookups decks? I bought a naughty geisha 1 reissued deck from eBay and the graphic looks really good, but the only thing I noticed it that the logo seems a little light/faded and the it doesn't say "Made in USA" under the logo. When I look at the catalog picture, it shows the "made in USA" text on it, so I'm wondering if I was sold a counterfeit board.

I recall thinking WTF? when I purchased the re-issue.. that's when I realized they had switched manufacturing to Mexico. I had informed the skateshops that they would want to contact Jeremy regarding stock photos for accuracy before submission due to the fact that such differences could cause issues with the buyer.

Nah, it was when Jeremy was still in contract with Blitz Distribution (not of the same quality as the late 90's early 2000's) and there were other issues as well. The difference in eye color for the two re-issue Chiquita Girl decks I have that are featured on my collection page was not deliberate but one of those QC checks that the production team overlooked.
