Default Authentic or Fake? 1888 Goodwin Champions Bob Caruthers

What do you think of this 1888 Goodwin Champions Bob Caruthers? It looks at least trimmed, but I don't know if it's authentic. The back looks interesting with some kind of overprint or bleeding.

front looks fake (too much contrast?), card stock looks too thin for the issue, and the back repetitive overprint thing might have something to do with the company that made this ??reprint??
Not 100% sure, but thats what I see in the bad picture

edited to say the back is also the wrong ink color

Here is a real N162 Caruthers for comparison.

The card in your scan looks like a reprint.
