Default counterfeit 1951 bowman

Does alignment of baseball on the back of 51 bowmans indicate fakes

Some fake Mantles have the "BASEBALL" text higher up than an original.

Basically the word "Baseball" is not centered between the 2 lines it resides within.

I would not worry about fakes on 1951 Bowman commons unless they are clearly reprints. Not really a problem in the hobby. I was just referencing 1 item that has been noted on fake Mantles.

Since the "baseball" and the rest of the back are two different colors some misalignment from registration that's slightly off would be normal.

Sounds like the source image for the fake Mantles was a bit off.

On a common I wouldn't worry.
