I will also state as a collector/dealer who worked on those sets, those 7 cards tended to show up on most want lists and were far easier to sell.

Also -- I know someone in the DFW area who accumulated a couple hundred (I did not count) of the Mantle and I would certainly call Mantle a Double or even a Triple Print

Rich-
I've seen 3 of these sheets in 20+ years of looking, and own/owned 2 of them. They were all exactly the same.
In the '70's Dodger Stadium used to sell envelopes of '64 Giants, 25 cards for a buck. We bought TONS of them, as it was the easiest way to get cards of players that had retired before my friends and I started collecting. Koufax was almost as plentiful as Mantle (and way more popular in LA) and there were tons of Stuart, Cisco, Mays, Causey, etc. When we started trading thru the mail about '73 my friends and I put together and sold complete sets, and it didn't appear any card was tougher than others. At the monthly card meeting in Garden Grove one guy always had a table stack high with them, I assume he had access to vending cases. So based on all of this and the sheets I don't believe there were short prints on that set.

FWIW when I was putting together a high grade set about 10 years ago Johnny Romano was the card that eluded me for months in PSA 9.[/quote]

Anthony:

I will say one thing -- a "card" scarcity can certainly be a different object than a "grading" scarcity. I'm sure there are cards which are on one level easy which do not grade well and cards which are difficult which usually grade very well.

I'm sure there is a reason for the "scarcity" of those 7 cards since that goes way back. But there is one thing I can agree with 100 percent based on that sheet and based on personal knowledge. The Mantle card is ridiculously easy on all levels in that set.

Default Philly Show "1947 Bowman" cards sheet

OK guys, I'm stretching the timeline with this post. But, I consider this a special issue worthy of displaying here. These cards
were created for the 2nd Philly Show (1976).
In 1975, the famous "Willow Grove" Show was initially set-up at Spring Garden College (located in a Philadelphia suburb). In
1978, this Show was re-located to Willow Grove.


Partial sheet of a 49-card set.
