Default 1947 Exhibits Whitey Ford - Postcard Back?

I picked up this Whitey Ford Exhibits card, but it has a back I haven't seen before.

Is the "Postcard" verbiage original to the card or was it possibly added later?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Pretty sure the card and the stamped postcard back are both counterfeit.

Front is most certainly one of the repro/reprints.

Never saw that type of PC back on an Exhibit before.

But the fact that the card is not original tells you all you need to know

Default Postcard

The whole shebang looks bad ..... grainy front and a weak attempt at an old looking back. Not a very convincing fake.

There are a variety of 'aftermarket' PC backs and advertising backs made of Exhibits in the postwar period. Some are rare and valuable, others not. This one looks like a reprint with a PC printing on the back. Interesting but not valuable, or as they say on Antiques Road Show "decorative value only".

Oh, and a card:

This is one of the aftermarket valuable backs.
At ten all I thought about was card collecting. At twenty all I thought about was women. At thirty all I thought about was success. At forty all I thought about was money. Now all I think about is retirement...because all I want to think about is card collecting!
