The repro overlays on the other hand are black and are die-cut from a vinyl-like material.

The reproductions also have an adhesive backing.

Thankyou all for your quick assistance.
I will now forever be able to correctly identify an original Magicard and overlays ;)
I came across a magicard with manual and overlays in a lot on ebay - no pics - so I asked for some and received the following (pic attached)
After asking some more questions regarding age and authenticity I got some vague and dubious answers.
I'll take a miss on this one :D

Wow, cameras that take excellent pictures are amazingly inexpensive these days. Hell, even the worst digital camera I ever had took far better pictures. I had an old Nokia phone that took pictures about that quality, but heck, that phone is probably 10 years old by now. :D

That is definitely taken on an older camera phone; poor quality indeed!

That pic was "Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T"
I always thought those Blackberry things were top of the line?

The poor picture quality is probably more due to low light, and too far away, then cropped.
