Default E98 Experts: Is this Wagner the Real Deal?

hey guys i just gambled on this E98 Wagner

the pics aren't great, but after comparing to other blue background versions, i thought it was worth a shot. plus i wasn't able to find any fakes in the blue background.

any thoughts? real deal or fake?

I'm not betting my lunch that's it real.

But hope that it is.

Impossible to say for sure without having it in hand, but if it's a fake it's a scary good one. You might've struck gold. Wish he had sold more similar items. Mostly a video game guy.

It actually looks authentic. Interested to hear the outcome.

Cool, good luck!

Assuming it's authentic, and grades a "1"...what's it then worth? Just curious, as I do not collect this set.

Hard to say—there is a blue background Wagner on ebay in PSA 2 condition for $1800 so definitely less than that but maybe $700 to $1000 is what I’m guessing

No, I don't think it's real but not sure. Check out the lettering of his name on front. Also, on questionable cards I am never a fan of perfect or almost perfect centering. That said I am not 100% on it so there is a chance .

ps...in looking at it more it could be the real deal and a good deal if it is!!

Like Leon, the print is the one thing that gives me pause on it. To me the printing looks quite heavy/bolder than normal. However, there are known authentic E98 examples that also have this same heavier printing of the name, so I think it is real. I also like the fact that the registration is slightly off and the way the top layer of the bottom corner is peeled off and toned. If you are going to make a fake, why not use one with better registration?

I'm always hesitant when someone knows enough to put it in a screwdown holder, but not enough to know what they have.
