I agree with several others...the white back (and edge) looks like a modern day reproduction. The soiling/damage along the right edge should've gone through the entire piece. I'd send it back.

Just my opinion, but sure looks like a fake to me: white back, cardboard looks like it came in the mail yesterday, and to my eyes it has that artificially aged/distressed/yellowed look of a lot of the recent negro league repros. It also has the glossy/glazed sheen common to those.

I had already seen it on ebay before this thread.
My first thought was "yuck"....

Sorry guy but you need to stop buying and spend the next few month doing research of vintage baseball memorabilia.

Find real examples of what you want, learn size, color, material etc and then make up a wish list.

This will save you a lot of time and money

What better way to learn than hands on I know what you mean, but it's a shame I have to continue to dodge scum on ebay continuously.

you keep going to ebay looking for a bargain, but you get what you pay for there.

Go to some of the better weekly auctions like Mears etc, bargains there all the time

Default Monarchs Poster

This Monarchs poster has been reproduced in large quantities. I see them frequently here in the KC area. I would never buy this poster without inspecting it in person, even from a respected dealer.
