Robert Johnson Photo On Ebay?

There is a photo on Ebay which the seller claims to "believe to be Robert Johnson." The price of the starting bid is $795,000, which is kinda steep if you aren't even sure it's him. You're probably saying "why the fuck would anyone pay that much even if it was him?" - well because their are only two known photos of Johnson and he is perhaps the most influential bluesman to ever live.

I've actually studied Delta blues and Robert Johnson and my opinion is that dude ain't him. They have a similar look but I'm pretty sure that's not Robert Johnson.

sure looks like him to me. the wide set eyes, the thick wide nose.
Still, that is a bit steep.

certainly there are people who specialize in verification of this kind........
