Seems like a real bargain! Lucky that this guy is just "too lazy" to send it in to get authenticated!

From the description " Great card and TRUE GEM for a fan to add to their collection ! Don't miss out !!"

He is even to lazy to clean up his cut and paste from another description...

I love his use of phrases like "possible rare find" and "If this is legit" .

Seems like that should be clear cut case for authenticity disclaimer, which is against ebay policy.

I am sure they let it run though!

Sanded down the whole ball too. I guess it's cheaper than getting one from Mathewson's era.

He's not lazy. He just "never had a chance" to send it off for authentication. I totally understand that.

It is better than staining the labels dark brown and then shellacking the whole ball.
