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

The lettering was the one thing I was concerned about too. But if you look at real ones the type is also fairly bold and dark

I searched endlessly for another reprint in blue background, even went to a popular reprint seller and they had a red but no others. So not an exact science but hoping it’s real for sure!

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?

Thanks! Sorry prob a stupid question what exactly do you mean by “registration”?

registration is the image clarity. Think of it as focus, though with these older cards it also comes down to the successive ink colors lining up correctly on each pass through the press.

My guess is that it's not real, but the images are not good enough to tell for sure.

See how the yellow color bleeds off the top because the sheet wasn't lined up properly when it went through the yellow plate? That's bad registration. Makes the picture of Mantle blurry.

I just think it might be ok, but then I am always the optimist on what is a close call with this Honus. Let us know the outcome.

I am not an E98 expert, but that looks real to me.

I'm also not an expert, but I can say that I was quite surprised at how bold the captions were on my e98s when I got them in hand. I think the caption looks good on this Wagner in question. I think you may have found a great deal here.

Default E98 Wagner

I've handled more than a few E98s over the years and this one looks good to me.
