I'll guess about 200-250 on O'Hara and 250-300 on Demmitt

Default T206 Reference....Guess how many Demmitt & O'Hara St Louis variations exist ?

Thanks guys for all you guesstimates. Let's see if we can a few more inputs ?

Incidentally, if you are searching for an affordable Demmitt (St Louis) card, you should consider acquiring the T213-2 Demmitt.
The image is the same, and so what if the name of the team differs, and it's caption is colored blue

There is usually one (or 2) for sale on ebay for about $100. Think of the $$$$ you save, allowing you to buy many more T206's.

The average number of the guesstimate inputs = 470 cards of each of these St Louis variations. One input, however, is somewhat
high and skews this average number more than I would guess.

Anyway, my number is a little more than just a guess, as have been tracking the St Louis versions of Demmitt and O'Hara for years.
Therefore, my "sort of educated" guess is = 350 +/- 50 cards each.

So, we are all basically in the same "ballpark"

Thanks for your responses.

Many collectors etc. know nothing about the grading services, and about 300 of each of these cards have already been graded. Wonder how many have not been graded ? Most cards in general have not been graded.

How many of the average polar bear common are out there?
Curious how this estimate lines up against the average polar bear population.

Good question.

There are 250 different subjects in the T206 set printed with POLAR BEAR (PB) backs.

American Litho (ALC) started their 1st press runs of the PB cards in the 350-only series (circa Summer 1910). There are 138 subjects in the 350-only series confirmed with PB backs.
The population range of these PB cards is 50 - 100.

Subsequently, ALC printed the PB backs on cards in the 350/460 series. In this series, 64 subjects are confirmed with PB backs. The population range of these PB cards is 100 - 300.

And finally, the PB backs were printed on all 46 subjects in the 460-only series. The population range of these PB cards is 25 - 75.

Given the above data, my theory is that the Demmitt and O'Hara (St Louis cards) were printed during the 350/460 press run.

Do you think the Demmitt/O'hara are notably any more rare than the average PB common? How would you rate it's survivor population vs the average PB common.

Much lower
Slightly lower
Almost equal
Equal
