Posted By: <b>Joseph1</b><p>Anyone care to weigh in on the authenticity of this item:<br /><br /><img src="http://i189.photobucket.com/albums/z36/1969mets_2007/honustrade.jpg"><br /><br />It's for sale on eBay and I was all set to bid when I see that the seller's <br />other items include many of the "suspicious" posters of the sporting genre.<br /><br />Lelands has sold a couple of these, one of which had a schedule verso and the other<br />ex-Halper. <br /><br />Sleeper or sucker?

Posted By: <b>Aaron M.</b><p>Super fake. Don't ignore all the red flags (ridiculously low current bid for what would normally be a very valuable item, private auction, selling many other fake items, etc.).

Posted By: <b>paulstratton</b><p>Is this the scan of the card or the reproduction poster? The card looks bad, private auction, made to look old, colors look wrong, etc...I think this is a scan of the reproduction poster. Just my opinion.<br /><br />I own one with a schedule back that I believe to be from the Halper collection, though I did not get it from the auction itself. <br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Joseph1</b><p>The scan above is from one of the Lelands auctions...<br /><br />Here's the auction:<br /><br /><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320143420545" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320143420545</a><br /><br />Check out the seller's other items.

Posted By: <b>paulstratton</b><p>Very fake. <br /><br />Sorry I did a quick ebay search and came up with the fake and the repro poster, which looks quite similar to the Leland's scan.
