Default 1888 N28 Allen & Ginter grading question / Ward

I have an 1888 N28 Allen & Ginter card of John M. Ward and have a grading question. The back print is off - center by a lot - wondering if it is worth getting it graded. The front is decent shape, centered and good corners.

I would compare it to a real one before I made my decision.

My apologies for posting - I thought this was real and have been informed it is a fake - bad one at that - live and learn.

If you compared it to a real one you would see how much brighter the colors are, and the background would be white and not the beige color of yours.

This (experience) is the only way to learn. The more you see/hold fakes the more you will know real ones.
