Default 1952 Wheaties (is this a fake?)

I purchased this low grade Ted Williams card on ebay. The printing under a loupe looks fine to my untrained eye. It appears there are some variances in the cardboard with some other cards I own, but the Williams card feels just a bit thinner than my others.

I read in the Standard Catalog that these cards were "extensively counterfeited circa 2002".

Is this a fake card?

Feels thin and looks different . Seems a little fishy to me.
