But what gives me hope is that it is numbered out of 39, and i cannot find a numbered version of this card to 39 leading me to believe one of 2 possible scenarios. Number 1 being it is a fake and someone forged an auto and somehow numbered it? OR that it is a real, but rare card? (i hope? lol) Any thoughts on the serial numbering here? The numbering looks authentic enough.

Also, i sent a message to the guy i purchased the card from on ebay. Hope to hear back from him soon to get his take.
