Brian:

The spider veins can be seen as creases, one and the same. Over the years when I was actively searching e-bay every day for Negro League items, I probably posted a dozen or more fakes on Net 54 as I spotted them as to avoid other Net 54 members making the mistake of buying and thinking they were legitimate. It happened to me when I first started collecting Negro League photos in 2006 and I learned my lesson the hard way. The seller disappeared from e-bay and I had to eat a $400 loss.

As far as wanting to keep the item, you should collect whatever you enjoy so if it makes you happy to have it, why not?

Default Negro League photo

I listened to a bunch of you (and my instincts) and returned this photo to the seller.
Ironically, it has now resurfaced on eBay:

I guess I should alert the seller as to my concerns?

Not trying to 'out' an auction, but I don't want anyone else making a mistake.

I call that generation of Negro League repros the "Yellow Fakes" since they all have a yellowish tint to them, trying for a sepia look but not quite getting there.

I let the seller know, but listing was still up last I checked.

Looks like the seller finally took it down a couple of days ago.
