Interesting. I've never seen that card where the sleeves match the cap, but obviously there are other known examples. It seems to me that the black cap is way more common than the blue cap. To me, that should be catalogued as a variation. If it were only a minor color variation, I would guess maybe the ink was running low and what was supposed to be black turned out blue. But it's not a minor color variation. It's a totally different color. Again, I'm not sure why that's not catalouged as a variation. Good luck with your submission and let us know how it turns out.

It is an issues with a lot of reprints but I usually look for cropped picture more so because the colors can vary a lot. I think its real but im no expert, another reason to send it to SGC and get it slabbed.

Thankfully, sounds like disaster averted. Too bad this had to be aired out in full view. If it were me, I'd have preferred PM or email rather than false fire alarms in a crowded theater. You may feel differently. Sounds like you've got it well in hand, regardless. Carry on.

I have collected this issue and believe me there are so many color variations that it would be impossible to list. However, that should be listed as a color variation because of the cap. There is one listed now, #42. I believe that the Dimaggio should be listed as a major color variation.

I know no one on this forum wants to see anyone spend hard earned money on a reprint or fake. I know the amount of Exhibit fakes out there is unreal, I always hate telling someone his Mantle exhibit is fake, tough lesson to learn.

A lot of us have seen it many times here (and other chat boards such as Net54) when a board member shows off a new card purchase, only to find out it's a fake. There's no shame in it.

However, when this happens time is of the essence to get your money back - especially if it's an eBay purchase where the buyer protection is only good for a certain amount of time.

Most all of us have been taken at one point or another. A couple of ones that come to mind just off the top of my head were the fake Cobb auto that Joey purchased and the T206 Tinker reprint that Pat purchased. It happens even to hobby veterans.

Heck, I purchased a '57 Clemente that looked NM in every way and when I posted a scan Pat showed me a crease on the back that I had overlooked so I returned it for a refund. That card wasn't a reprint, but my point is that some times it helps when other people look at your stuff because you might miss what others may see.

Let me also say I've just joined a few days ago and I've already gotten so much more and better advice than any other sites I've been on ( one that starts with B for example)
