Cards that never come up for sale

Post by ullmandds on Tue Jan 21, 2014 2:57 am

I have been searching for an E97 Nichols phil variation...the color one...not the b/w. I've seen maybe 4-5 over the last decade or 2 come up...but have not seen one in a long time!

What other cards...besides the obvious super rarities...just don't seem to come onto the market very often?

Took me close to 30 years to find the darn D304 Herzog with bar! I was wondering if it existed and ran a thread on NET54 a few years back and like 5 members each had 1! Ugh!

I was wondering how I missed so many, then finally got 1.

I thought I saw the Nichols on ebay? pose with no hat or is that Kelly?

Yeah, Dan...even the e97 nichols, Cleveland version is pretty tough...although that one comes up pseudo regularly...and there has been one on ebay forever...due to the over-exhuberant price tag!

I was toying with starting that set but it looks like it will get expensive!

Dad and I sold E cards to get tobacco and Topps and Bowman!

In recent years I completed E95 and E96 for fun and was toying with the idea of E97, I acquired 4 of them but sold them through Brockelman and Luckey a few years back.

In my 30+ years in the hobby I don't recall ever seeing the n172 Anson in uniform for sale publicly.

Didn't someone find a Madden on the rock a few years back in an original collection?

Anson in Uniform was in a Lipset auction around 2002.

I was completely out of the hobby from 1992-2002, so that would explain why I didn't see the Anson. Scary to think what that card would go for today.
