Default CNBC show Treasure Detectives to exam questionable T206 Wagner

I think this will be on tonights episode. I watched last week but they only examined some art and a very cool old glass/crystal auto hood ornament. From what I've heard hobby experts have already said this Wagner is not legit, but the owner keeps trying to find someone to authenticate it.

Is this the graded and purported cut from a sheet example?

no, this is a fake. I think it is another Wagner non-tobacco issue of the time that mirrors the T206, pasted onto an authentic T206 back. I'll know more tomorrow

I thought this was going to be about the Gretzky/McNall T206 Honus Wagner which is purported to be trimmed.

Nope, but there is a good ESPN 30 for 30 short about that.
