Default Mickey Mantle Premium?

I have read the threads that have spoken about the 1951 Wheaties Premium but I have not seen an image of one that has a facsimile autograph of Mantle.

Does this premium look right and of the period, or just a fantasy piece?

Thank you.

Lucky

How big is it? The Wheaties premiums are like 8\10 and glossy finished. This looks like it is the size of a regular card? I have owned 100s of Mickey's and all type of oddball items, etc...and never seen or heard of something like this, so my guess is something someone created.

The 51 Wheaties are smaller than 8x10 but wouldn't fit in a regular top loader. I've never seen anything like that before.

This item was being offered to me for purchase and i wanted to get clarity on exactly what it was before i made an offer. The size of the card is 2 inches by 1 inch.

I thank everyone for all their valued input.

Lucky.

I'd say about 99% chance it's fake. Wouldn't waste the money.

I assume it's a fake or fantasy piece at that size-- though the Wheaties are blank backed. They really are prototypes and were never commercially issued.
