A photograph collector from Ontario, Canada, claims he has found a picture of John Travolta from a previous incarnation in 1860.
John Travolta is a member of the Church of Scientology, which believes in reincarnation and asks some members to sign one billion year contracts of service.
The 150-year-old photo of a man who looks remarkably like John Travolta has been put up for sale on eBay.
“When you look at it and into the eyes of the sitter you will see what I mean!
“I believe this is the photograph of a very young John Travolta taken around 1860… This is a ruby glass ambrotype photograph and it is one of a kind.
“It hasn’t been changed, tampered with or altered in anyway. It is clear and is as nice as the day it was taken roughly 151 years ago.”
The photo is listed on eBay at $50,000 or nearest offer, and while it has a large price tag comes with free shipping and gift wrapping.
The listings comes after another antique dealer joked that he has a photo that is proof Nicolas Cage is more than just an A-list actor – he’s also a vampire who lived during the American Civil War.
The eBay seller claims to have a 4” by 2.5” carte de visit photo from around 1870 of a man who looks exactly like Nicolas Cage.
The seller, who has put the starting price at $1million, says the photo is 100% genuine and was taken of a man who lived in Bristol, Tennessee, around the time of the Civil War.
“My theory is that he allows himself to age to a certain point, maybe 70, 80 or so, then the actor “Nicolas Cage” will <<die>>,” Jack Mörd joked.
“But in reality, the undead vampire <<Nicolas Cage>> will have rejuvenated himself and appeared in some other part of the world, young again, and ready to start all over.”
“The picture was found in the back of an album that contained many unusual death portraits from the Civil War era – but the Nicolas Cage lookalike was not identified by name,” Jack Mörd said.
Jack Mörd has a 100% positive feedback rating on eBay and his profile says he is interested in collecting and selling Victorian Era post-mortem photography, as well as other vintage pictures.
The eBay product description for “Nicolas Cage is a Vampire / Photo from 1870 / Tennessee” says:
“Original c.1870 carte de visit showing a man who looks exactly like Nick Cage.
“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.”
It is believed the photo was taken by a confederate Civil War prisoner of war photographer called Professor G.B. Smith.
Jack Mörd joked that Nicolas Cage could be a walking undead man who reinvents himself once every 75 years – and might be looking at going into politics or talk show hosting next.
