Albino FOIL Mana Echoes Real? Sunbleach?

Albino Mana Echoes

Picked this up after seeing Keith Chuck Taylor Adams video about albinos. The scanner seemed to pic up a lot of red in the card @ 1200 dpi. I don't know if this means it's fake? It's also foil so maybe that could explain it. The foil refraction looks completely normal. The more albino picture is the same scan w/ a filter that makes it look how it does in person. I've never seen a foil albino...these exist right?

Real? Sunbleach Fake? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

This is almost certainly real. Sun-bleached cards will still retain some blue traces and will not look identical to true albinos.

Thanks for the reply. I've heard mostly that it's fake from people who don't have albinos.... Trying to get some real advice. Seller told me if I think it's fake he'll take it back.

You're right, but Mana Echoes is a card nearly without blue on it.

I've sun-bleached a lot of cards and this one really looks like a card that you obtein after sun-bleaching.

2 exemples, Force of Will, a card with blue, and like Mana Echoes, Empty the Warrens, a card without blue on it.

Hi

To my knowledge foil Albino doesn't exist, this one will be the first one, but I'm not an expert.

If it's the one that no one bought on Ebay, I will be tempted to think it's sunbleached. IMHO
