Default E98 Collectors: Does this Cobb look real?--SALE CANCELED--

Hey Guys--

I'm a hall-of-fame collector, have plenty of tobacco cards but don't have any other E98's.

I just bought this one on the spur of the moment:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1910-Set-of...p2047675.l2557

Does it look authentic to you?

I realize that the seller's lack of feedback does not strengthen his credibility.
But he's been around since 2009, and so I decided to gamble.

I haven't paid for it yet. Would like to hear some opinions first.

If I do buy it and get it, I'll look at it under a microscope and should be able to tell if it's genuine or not.

Thanks for your input.

An e98 Cobb for $100? I think your answer is right there. My condolences.

Uh-oh.

I seem to do this kind of thing every year or two.
Thank goodness for this forum,
and thanks to each of you for your replies.

I really did do this on the spur of the moment, first seeing it with five minutes left.
But the front of the card looked good to me.

Is there anything about the scans themselves that make you think the card is phoney?

On close inspection, I'm not so confident about the back.

The image quality on the front isn't great but what really gives it away are all of those little cracks/lines on the back. They are common to a lot of the fakes on eBay that might seem ok at first glance.
