Posted By: <b>Julie Vognar</b><p>The front of this (phony) card looks very real--there are various even, shiny spots as if it were a lithograph. The back is sadly--pink, and the print under the photo is very dark pink (an unfortunate color: Pink Fraud).<BR>I payed $20 for it because I liked it, and thought it might be a genuine work of art--BUT--DOES THIS IMAGE<BR>PERHAPS OCCUR ON A REAL CARD? An e card, perhaps? The guy advertises reprints; maybe it is a reprint after all. Anybody?<BR><BR><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1077062890.JPG"> <img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1077062922.JPG">

Posted By: <b>Hankron</b><p>It's a modern fantasy card (made up), which is distinct from a reprint.

Posted By: <b>Dave</b><p>I sure can't find any card like this, but it does have great eye appeal. If the unform is correct for Pittsburg, it would be from 1915 to 1919. Those are the only vintage years with red P on both the jersey and the cap.

Posted By: <b>Julie</b><p>...velly interesting! I wish you could see the surface of the front, which looks so lithographic.

Posted By: <b>runscott</b><p>...semi-ashamed to admit that I bought an inexpensive grouping of the t206 Wagners out of morbid curiosity.<BR><BR>I received 3 large portraits (red, blue and yellow back), a large "in action" one (complete body profile), a small "in action", and two small portraits (blue back). I think I paid $8 for all of them, and they are kind of neat.<BR><BR>I also had a friendly email exchange going with the seller of these "fantasy" cards. He makes a lot of them and said the Wagner picture came out of a book.
