There have been some rather weird eBay listings in the past, but this one really caught my eye. According to this guy who collects antique memorial photography, he came into possession of a photo of a man who looks remarkably like Nicolas Cage. I wonder if anyone can tell if the image has been shopped. He claims it's all legit; he wants 1 million dollars for it!



(The Thanatos Archive watermark is not on the original image)

Original c.1870 carte de visite showing a man who looks exactly like
Nick Cage. Personally, I believe it's him and that he is some sort of
walking undead / vampire, et cetera, who quickens / reinvents
himself once every 75 years or so. 150 years from now, he might
be a politician, the leader of a cult, or a talk show host.

This is not a trick photo of any kind and has not been manipulated
in Photoshop or any other graphics program. It's an original photo
of a man who lived in Bristol, TN sometime around the Civil War.

I've had a lot of questions asking where I purchased this. As followers
of my website know, I collect antique memorial photography -
images of dead people - from the 1800s. This photo was found in
the very back of album that contained an unusual number of
Civil War era death portraits (which is why I purchased it). All of
the other people in the album, living and dead, were identified
by name - this man was not.

Photographer is Professor G.B. Smith. A contact of mine forwarded
this interesting article (link) about the photographer, Smith. Turns
out he was a confederate Civil War prisoner of war photographer.

Guaranteed to be an original 1860s-70s photograph and not
a modern reproduction, copy or photo manipulation.

4" x 2.5".

Condition
Unevenly trimmed on all sides.

Doesn't he know no one cares about Nick Cage? No one, and no one would ever spend 1 million on him, even if stupid people think this is a picture of him and that he is a vampire.

Ebay, selling stupidity one day at a time.

Very, very interesting find, i have often wondered, if beings have been around for generations, thus the reasons nothing hardly-if ever changes on this planet?

Again star and flag for the find!

oh yeah the smallest similarities between him and this old photo mean that he is a vampire.
sorry, i don't see how this guy could be a 19th century version of mr. cage...
interesting find but nope, that's just rediculous.

Where is the vampire thing coming from lol.

Maybe he's a robot!

walking undead / vampire, et cetera, who quickens / reinvents
himself once every 75 years or so.

Quickening
Sounds more like he's a highlander now that I reread it lol.

I think Nick Cage is HOT!
That being said, if he's really a vampire I'd find him DOUBLY HOT


But sadly he's losing a lot of hair lately and the age signs are showing so the possibility is low
sniff

But we still have hopes that Keanu Reeves may be a vamp


Edit: After taking a closer look at Cage I noticed his ears aren't as rounded from the top like the guy in the old photo. So its definitely not him.

Well I suspect a lot of the value is probably in the age of the image.

So, form the 1870s through the 1980s, Nick Cage actually got younger. And once he became famous he started aging again?

Then:



Now:

I think there is a little bit more than a "small" similarity between these men.

So, is he wearing a rug in that picture then too? I mean, if he was a vampire, why does he have the worst hair in all his movies? Did he just get bit and converted at a lame time in life.....where you are middle aged, getting fat and balding? Awesome!

Wonder if this could be an ancestor of his, strange how there are look a likes for everyone.
BTW Nicolas Cage has a weird twist at the top of the ears this guy doesn't as one instant difference I can see.

Wow, there is a remarkable resemblance to Nicolas Cage in his younger days. Almost all facial features match. Except for the thinner jaw bone, I'd say that is in fact Mr. Cage. Lookalikes are common and most likely the case here.

The most intriguing aspect is the man in the photo is unnamed. This certainly deserves looking into.

What? So a picture from the {late} 19th century is worth a cool million? Since when? Oh right, never. Hell, pictures of actual famous/influential people of that time, and pretty much any time period, would never sell for that, ever.

Ebay, beware of the Stupids. This is right up there with people selling wind in jars from hurricanes & Jesus' face in their grilled cheese. Morons.

I hope the 3 people who flagged this nonsense so far are doing it purely for laughs. Make that 4 de dee dees

It looks very fake to me, look at the different ears and the different sides of his head, no one would give a million for this pile of cr*p

I think Aggie has really sealed the deal, but that is also a great observation. The look-alike has much more rounded ears.

If that were the case I'd be a hell of a lot wealthier than I am now.

I wonder if that's why he bought his pyramid coffin.

Although I don't think the photo is really of Cage, the two men definitely look like each other.......
