Default 1933 Delong experts- Real or Fake?

Cards measure right at 2x3 inches. Feels/"Smells" like those of National Chicle but never owned any the Delong before these. Anyone see any noticeable indications if these are reprints please educate me. Thanks!

There are reprints of the set, but your cards seem authentic (aging of the edges, etc)

I've owned quite a few Delongs. You really can't ever tell from scans, although I'd err to the authentic side just from looking at them. Use a loupe and look at the printing and do a light test. If there's some torn paper, look at the paper to see if it's a bit fibrous, which it should be.

Thanks for advice. I am going to send these to SGC. They look legit and SGC running nice wildcard special right now so I'll gamble $7 each on these. Also going to send in 49' Bowman Musial from PWCC bought on bay. We'll see how they do.
