You list a BIN for $1,200, but you have a price listed on the card at half that. Then you list the card manufacturer as Topps, that it is from 2010, and the era is Modern. Never mind you have only two feedback.

Maybe take Tyrus out of his plastic confinement, and have a shot of the back. That would do a better job of trying to sell the card than their words.

The grade is 3! I hardly ever click on a reprint card on Ebay. I can usually tell from the pic if it's a reprint and I only use my cell phone.

Default By no means am I an expert, but

is this combination even possible? I was just curious and asked the guy for a back scan or image, saying it would make a difference in the value of the card depending on which tobacco brand was advertised, and the series number. He almost instantly sent this .....

shot with a phone, I'm guessing, but I can't make out anything in the smaller print. Is this combination even possible?

Are we sure that this is a reprint? After 8+ years of collecting these, I'd like to think that I'm fairly well versed in T206's. I can spot a reprint almost within a split second. Other than the "chipping" around the edges, at first glance this looks completely 100% legit. Without seeing it in person, I wouldn't be so quick to rule out that this is truly authentic....

I actually don't think it's a reprint. I think most of the concern is based on the seller's low feedback, the initial lack of a back photo or even a mention of what it was, as well as the odd $600 price tag. I don't really touch four figure cards that aren't graded and that I can't see in person, but my impression from the photos is that it's authentic.
