Posted By: <b>D. Bergin</b><p>I've never, ever seen blank back T-220's before. No way to tell from the scans but I would assume they're fake without a better look or actually handling them.<br><br>

Posted By: <b>boxingcardman</b><p>The curl leaves me suspicious, though, especially if they are machine cut. The only scrap from this set that I've ever seen was a reversed back and was hand-cut. If you want to send one to me I can take a look. LMK<br><br>Sic Gorgiamus Allos Subjectatos Nunc

Posted By: <b>David Hanvey</b><p>They do look like re-prints on nice white paper.<br><br>I came across something similar to this not long ago (ie blank backs T cards). I guess everyone has seen a blank backed T225, but has anyone seen a blank backed T223 ? Somebody emailed me about a set of blank backed T223's, on thick card stock (like an ad poster). The thing is though, I have never seen a T223 ad poster.

Posted By: <b>D. Bergin</b><p>First the Red Cross N266 Cards, then these T220's and now the T223's David mentions...............all recently appearing in blank back form? Or are these the same as the T223's?<br><br>Either way something fishy going on here.<br><br><br><br>

Posted By: <b>boxingcardman</b><p>I was contacted on the T223s as well. I may be reviewing a sample. It seems very unlikely to me that these are all of a sudden surfacing. Something's stinky in the popourri. <br><br>Sic Gorgiamus Allos Subjectatos Nunc

Posted By: <b>Keith O\'Leary</b><p><p>I agree that they look too white and vibrant and*I've only seen scans and don't have them in hand to examine them in person, but....I wanted to add that these came from a long time tobacco card collector's collection and*while I'm not sure how long they were owned, I would think a tobacco card collector would be able to ID a modern reproduction with little trouble. Just wanted to throw that out. I do have large scans if anyone wants to look at them. Keith</p>
