Default Pieces of the past relic question

I bought pack of vol. 2 and got a cool looking Reagan relic that shows all of “Ronald” in typed text. My problem is that in the pic of the document used, it is a blank piece of paper with Reagan’s autograph in the center. Clearly my piece can’t be from that.
Is anyone familiar with this product? I contacted them but haven’t heard back. I’ll try and get a pic up soon. It’s a cool relic, but I’m worried about it...

Edit: here’s the card


And the back which shows the document. Clearly there is no typed text.

Thatís my problem. My piece doesnít match ANY of the Reagan documents. On the back of the card it also shows the document. Itís a blank paper with an autograph and no typed text. My piece is clearly Ronald in typed text.

Keep in mind I haven't seen your card... But I just checked the website myself and there is one document that would perfectly match what you described.

http://thebartradingcards.com/gallery/

Keep your eyes down the middle of the page and pretty quick you'll see a Reagan signed postcard where his name is printed multiple times. Still doesn't change the fact the wrong document may be pictured on the back of your card. But it looks like there's at least a possible matching relic.

Nope, already saw that. Ronald is spelled just like this, big R and the rest lower case. Plus the paper isnít that white, more tan or aged white. I canít find it anywhere. The card is at home and Iím at the GFís house so will get a pic tomorrow.

I've had issues in the past with Historic and they've always been super helpful and responsive. They should be able to square it up. Heck, maybe they have the BACK of a document up online for some damn reason.

Is that a recreation or an actual film/photo?

It says there are 10 so probably a recreation. Itís a cool card though.

If it was taken from a book maybe there was writing on the other side of the sheet.

Thanks. Why wouldn’t they show that side too? Weird decision on their part.

First and foremost, let us apologize for the issue with the image on the back of this specific Reagan card. As others have surmised, the scan shown on the back of the card is indeed the signed side of this postcard/ticket. It was a last minute decision to use the printed side of the postcard instead of the signed, mostly blank white side. It simply created a better looking relic. So, while it's a more interesting relic, unfortunately the image is of the correct piece...just the wrong side.

Everything said, this specific Reagan is the single rarest relic in the set.

The Clearly Historic American Moments cards are indeed limited to 10 copies of each of the 10 cards.

Thanks for the reply. It is indeed a cool piece. Honestly though, on your website it would have helped to show both sides. Would have been very cool to show off the card to friends along with where it is on the document. If you have the other side in your databases, I would love to see it.
