Attempted "Yu-Gi-Oh" Trading Card Fraud

It used to be that counterfeit "Beanie Babies" were the subject of government prosecutions, but the latest seems to be ""Yu-Gi-Oh" Trading Cards.  Fraud Update here has a press release from the Central District of California that reports on a plea to trafficking counterfeit.  The item attempted to be sold was "counterfeit 'Yu-Gi-Oh' playing cards that would have been worth more than $1 million if they were legitimate."  The defendant had a substantial problem in his sale in that the buyers were undercover federal officers. Thus, it is not surprising to see a plea entered here.
