..At least as far as I can see from a smallish scan. Anyone have doubts?

why doesn't it say T206 on the label, but 1911 instead? Is this typical of some T206 cards?

Looks like a bunch of really bad photocopy Mattys to me

I like to sit outside drink beer and yell at people. If I did this at home I would be arrested, so I go to baseball games and fit right in.

BCD,

Are those for real? They can't be. Did you print those out with your printer?

Part of Auction Description:

The eye appeal demonstrated by the example offered here is better that the vast majority of its peers encapsulated with the PSA 1 designation. Honest corner wear and multiple creases have not diminished the impact of Wagner's regal portrait. The viewer's concentration on the image is enhanced by near perfect centering. The instantly recognizable image remains sharply focused, rendered in rich color that rivals any of its brethren.

What "poetic license" this writer used. I know it's a t206 Wagner and this may be blasphemy, but that is one butt-ugly card especially because of that brutal crease going through his left eye. If I had an extra $100,000 laying around for baseball cards, I'd rather wait for a better t206 Wagner or buy something else. I don't mind imperfections in baseball cards, but not in the facial area - for me the face on the card has to be clean or no bid from Steve, even for a Holy Grail t206 Wagner - LOL

The Cracker jack Matty is so bright it looks like a reprint. I need to turn down the brightness OR post these in the holders they now are in. The photo is 20+ years old. But considering Jay owns nothing and hides in the boonies in an rented trailer igloo,I don't think comments from him about other people's cards will bring much weight. If my collection was the asset value of Hal,Greg or Chad's toe nail,then I suspect what Jay brings to the table is beggers gloves looking for scraps to make it through any other day~ Give me a break Jay- maybe I'll go post the 3500 SGC cards I have on thier set registry so you can find something you like and assume is a photo copy! It's cool Jay,you can cut down my collection.But at least I have one and all my cards are over 80% of the paper intact~
