Anyone know if this poster was an original or a good copy? I've been thinking about it.


UPDATE:
MY BAD, IT'S A RESTRIKE!!

Thanks,
Al

It says its a print from the orig. Negative. Hope someone didn't pay 899.

No, looks like they paid $600. Seems high to me, but not my area of expertise. If it really is the "only full-size" one of its kind, and is mounted to foam core board as they say/show, could it have been from a display at the HOF?

That's why i'm confused to why would someone pay that much for a re-strike.

That poster was in one of the HOF's tour in the past few years if I remember correctly

I have never heard of an original Spalding World Tour Poster. The poster that toured with the HOF exhibit was a Burke Ale that featured Cap Anson and Buck Ewing.

Neither have I.. I guess it's safe to say, it's a fantasy poster.
