Default Diamond Stars- Dixie Walker??

I've never seen this card before... anyone know anything about it? Doesn't look like a diamond star.

Looks sorta like a young Ben Chapman to me, but not Walker. Neither was with Philly in the Diamond stars period. Fantasy piece or Frankenstein?

I think it's ok. There are others on the web and Batters Box is legit.

Default Dolph Camilli

Ad has ended, when you click on link you see the correct card.. the question was about the earlier ad.

Front scan was a chopped up 1936 R316 Pastel of Dolph Camilli. Back scan was a 1936 Diamond Stars Dixie Walker

When I first saw it I had that bad gut feeling. Most times our guts are right.
