Anyone care to weigh in on the authenticity of this item:



It's for sale on eBay and I was all set to bid when I see that the seller's
other items include many of the "suspicious" posters of the sporting genre.

Lelands has sold a couple of these, one of which had a schedule verso and the other
ex-Halper.

Sleeper or sucker?

Super fake. Don't ignore all the red flags (ridiculously low current bid for what would normally be a very valuable item, private auction, selling many other fake items, etc.).

Is this the scan of the card or the reproduction poster? The card looks bad, private auction, made to look old, colors look wrong, etc...I think this is a scan of the reproduction poster. Just my opinion.

I own one with a schedule back that I believe to be from the Halper collection, though I did not get it from the auction itself.

The scan above is from one of the Lelands auctions...

Here's the auction:

Very fake.

Sorry I did a quick ebay search and came up with the fake and the repro poster, which looks quite similar to the Leland's scan.
