Yup. Singular. Obviously different paper/ink. I don't know sports or cards so not sure of what you are saying. Sorry. Second was sold in 2013 for $175 raw. Now slabbed in a tomb unknown to me. Some kind of facsimile.
Eric, when you say one was sold in 2013 for 175, which one, please?
Whoa! Sorry - the sig I found online in a search, matching yours above (the loose one), is not the sig you see when you "click to see image/page in the search results!!!"
To be clear, the one I saw and "lost" in my search was the one shown raw here - it was in a 'cheap" unknown slab. Must be some kind of digital forgery some of these modern things. Likely several around. No reason to think the one I saw was the same as the one posted loose above
Right down to the slight stain floating above the "a". Color photocopy?
right on, Pete. so to you, these look like one and the same?
Thanks. I think they would fit perfectly superimposed - photograph angle is messing it up but enough is there to see - this was 3 seconds work too.
Exactly. Pete, see the bottom of "Best wishes" peeking out of the slabbed one!
They are identical. One is the original and one is a copy.
