Jacob poses the following:
Q: "I have a Hal Chase NY baseball card. it appears to be a T3 Turkey Red card. I've checked the card itself for any sign of it being a reproduction but I'm not exactly sure what I'm supposed to be looking for. All of the sites that I have been to have listed added features such as starbursts in the bottom corners or watermarks. The card itself has none of them. I was wondering if there was a good way to tell if this card was a reproduction or in fact one of the original cards."

A: Before I go into specifics, let me ask you one quick question...How big is the card? If it's the same as a regular baseball card (you know, the ones we used to pull out of gum packs), it's not real.
Real T3s are MUCH larger and made on thicker cardboard.
PS: Jacob's one-word response to this answer..."Nuts."
