Exclamation 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle PSA 10 on Ebay - FAKE

Just curious as to whether anyone else has seen the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle PSA 10 on Ebay. I have studied the picture and have come to the conclusion that it is fake for the following reasons:

1. The same card is on the PSA website as the stock image for the PSA 10 version and the font on the slab in this auction is significantly darker than the one on PSA's website.

2. The barcode on the auction image is running together whereas the barcode on PSA's website shows distinctive gaps.

3. Marshall Fogel owns the #4 PSA set of 1952 Topps. Someone with that kind of money doesn't sell the best card from the set to some random guy, he sends it to an elite sports auction where the right buyers are located.

4. Most importantly, the seller responded to my private message saying he paid Fogel $800,000 for the card. To begin with, that would be significantly higher than this card is valued at and he would be dumb to "flip" it on Ebay. Additionally, the moron has 400 feedback as a seller with no items over $20 and most between $1 and $4. Someone with $800k to spend on a baseball card doesn't waste their time selling items on Ebay for $4.

The font on the label seems off

Also you think that it would at least have signature confirmation

Fogel has gone on record several times saying that he has turned down over $2,000,000 for this card. No way that it traded hands for less than that.
