Hi, yes there are tall boy replicas out there. I am nervous about your copy due to the suspiciously even wear on all corners. Also the upper right of the back scan looks to be showing white under the wear.

I agree with econteacher. Those corners do not look naturally worn. Also I can see some brighter white on the upper right (back)side of the card. I would think if those corners were naturally worn that the bright white chipping would look darker due to the natural aging.

Default Yep--a reproduction--Okay to sell as reprint?

Comparing this Alcindor with a know authentic 1969 Topps this card shown doesn't have any print pixels but a cross type pattern printing lines - I suspect a reproduction to deceive?

Here is my question I see Ruth goudey and T206 Cobb reprints being sold on Ebay all the time, usually fibbing in the description saying the card was their grandfathers cards, or in an estate so not sure a reprint etc, sometimes selling hundreds of dollar (sad for our hobby)

If i post describing this fake as a definite copy is it okay to resell?

As long as you sell it as a reprint it’s just fine. Sorry it wasn’t good.
