I'm not an expert on reprints by any means, but being fresh form the 54 market and namely researching and recently buying a 54 Aaron, I wouldn't touch this with a 10 foot pole. First off, the buyer seems sketchy at best...has zero feedback as a seller, and hasn't bought anything on this account in over a year. The corners looks "manipulated", and the back doesn't look right. That much corner wear and no creases? I doubt that. The front overall looks too dark as well, but that is a crappy picture...another red flag.

Just my opinion, could be wrong, but I wouldn't give that listing a second glance.

My sentiments exactly. And honestly, even if it WERE real, it's just a bad card, miscut and trimmed all to hell. Others may differ but for me, even if you're not looking to resell the card any time soon, there are good and bad ways to invest your hard earned money. And with a key card like the Aaron, I think you should try to get the nicest one you can for what your funds allow, one that hasn't been futzed with or trimmed, with decent centering and with eye appeal. Because to buy a junk card, you're throwing money away because the resale value is much more diminished, because collectors want something with nice eye appeal.

I say keep looking, and keep saving if need be for a nice Aaron rookie. Because you can do better than that one.

Looks like a scan / reprint. Orange lettering for the name, and the image of Aaron is not crisp, kind of grainy actually. Pass on this one. Bidding ended anyways, or was pulled.
