You owe me one new computer screen, the old one is full of red wine now :errm:

...though I do have to agree that the similarity to that photo of Nicolas Cage is stunning.

Seller has 100% positive feedback and most his images are period photos.

This has got to be making his day too.

I love the questions at the bottom of the page:

"Q: Why are you trying to sell this for one million?
A: Because I thought two million might be a bit unreasonable in this economy."

Seller looks like he is enjoying himself with auction questions also.

Or, lets say this is not a fake photo. EBAY for heavens sake, try Christies.

I love those cards! I found one with my name which is fairly rare though I don't believe he is any relation:

recently I saw a similar auction (maybe same seller...?) with "John Travolta" as a vampire.... - almost same text.... and same price....

Nice mugshot Harry!

There is that casino that buys crazy stuff, maybe he has his sites set on them noticing...

Heck, I'll sell my early Robert Redford for half of that, and throw 3% to APUG to boot. Any takers?

Your namesake I see was a "puddler" Harry, which was a process to turn pig iron into wrought iron.
