Posted By: <b>JimCrandell</b><p>I love these regionals. I believe there are 13 cards in this set but the Sihugo Green is impossible--only 1 card graded in total last time I checked. Here is a PSA 9 beauty from the set.<br /><br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1192973271.JPG">

Posted By: <b>Anthony</b><p>Jim- Why is Green so tough? Was it pulled from production for some reason?<br />

Posted By: <b>JimCrandell</b><p>Alan,<br /><br />No--I bought it raw 12 years ago and have upgraded it since.<br /><br />Anthony,<br /><br />That would be my guess. The card is ultra-rare.

Posted By: <b>Anthony</b><p>But why is it ultra rare? That is the story that always interests me. Was it a legal issue, like '59 Fleer #68, or a personal issue like '48 Leaf Graziano? Or deliberate like '32 US Caramel Lindstrom or George C Miller Ivy Andrews? To me that is often what makes a set a lot more interesting. Anyone know why this card is so tough?

Posted By: <b>Robert Dimand</b><p>Any idea why these appear to be more plentiful and in higher demand than the Kahn's?? Or is it that the scarcity of the Kahn's reduces demand??

Posted By: <b>JimCrandell</b><p>I think all Kahn's Basketball sets are incredibly scarce...especially in high grade. Essex Meats I would call moderately tough except for the Sihugo Green which is impossible--just had a higher print run.
