Are you an unhinged billionaire? Are you a sucker for impulse buys? Do you sit around wondering if the fellow née Nicolas Kim Coppola is an immortal Confederate soldier who feasts on human blood? Then have I got an eBay purchase for you, pilgrim!Behold this recent auction titled Nicolas Cage is a Vampire / Photo from 1870 / Tennessee
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.
(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.
The seller claims the photo, which does bear an uncanny resemblance to the Ghost Rider star, is completely authentic and shows a man who lived in Bristol, TN around the time of the Civil War.
As of Sept. 16, the seller had received 78 offers on the photo, all of which have been declined.
