Default Re-Backed OJ??

Need some OJ experts to let me know their opinions.

Does this appear re-backed to you? The edges appear to me that it is.

Thanks
Craig

It doesn’t look rebacked to me, or if it was, it was done many decades ago. A real OJ is a thin albumen photograph glued onto a thick piece of cardboard, so sometimes you get edges that look like this one when a card is worn. The true OJ experts can chime in if I’ve missed anything.

the card is a reprint IMO. The picture is blurry, corners evenly rounded. edges sanded off evenly, the staining on the back looks rubbed in and fresh compared to an older stain that would have probably blended together a bit more.

That is just my opinion

Something just doesn't seem right with the top, bottom & left sides being smaller than the backing. I also feel the wear is just so uniformed.

For me it is the wear on the card that is suspicious. As far as the reveal goes you have to take into consideration that it is a piece of film pasted to a piece of card stock. Taking that into account I would say its a good possibility to see separation on them.

Agreed. Reprint.

I've seen (and I own) apparently genuine OJs with similar wear, including slabbed ones. The only reprint OJs I've seen that weren't totally obvious fakes were derived from the photographic proofs at the Library of Congress, but those are all 1887 cards of major leaguers, and there were not aged like this. This still looks genuine to me. I'd be interested to hear what Jay Miller, Joe G., or other real OJ experts say.

100% agree. This is legit, and I don't believe it is rebacked either. Rebacked OJ's typically have different wear and tear than the front (if at all).

I appreciate all the info. I have 60+ OJs some with some separation but none so uniform at 3 sides.

I do believe it is genuine, just concerned with rebacking.

Jay & Joe do either of you care to chime in?
