Default Unknown Babe Adams Strip-esque card

This is what I believe to be a fantasy piece, but does anybody recognize where the image used for it came from? I posted about this card here ten years ago, and had no definitive response as far as identification, and thought it was about time to re-post this inquiry and see if anybody recognizes it. At that time I had seen another card on ebay, this one of Waite Hoyt, that also had a similar look in design and artwork, which would probably make it an early 1920's issue, if it were real. Unfortunately did not save image of the Hoyt example.

Here is the link to the original post:

it's from a W515-1. I'm pretty sure I have one, but I'm at work and don't have a scan. Here's the image I googled:

Good call Jason...definitely looks like it was derived from the W515 card, or perhaps from whatever photo that the makers of the W515 set used to create the Adams card.

I'm bored at work. Google is passing the time. Maybe this is the photo that was used?

Being bored at work can be the time when we are most productive in our collecting interests.

I would say that the photo shown is most likely the source image, especially because of the background match on the W515 card.

I have heard that the strip cards with blue lettering were reproductions.
