I don't like the overall look and quality.

I just checked images of a couple dozen other examples of this card and none of them have on the left and right sides those lines of background color that go from his shoulder down to the black of the name plate.

Even in Poor condition that is a $400-$500 card. If you paid $210 than that is a too good to be true price. I would get your money back.

Be careful...in certain states it is illegal to drive while photographing vintage cards.

Not an expert, but here is my expert opinion...it does look off to me. Pete offers a good reason why this is likely fake.

And never be afraid to remove a card from the holder. That way you can do a sniff test, and any card will photograph better too.

What if you are photographing new cards that are made to look like vintage cards?
