Default Colgan's & Ju Ju Drums

I always thought of these as neat issues. E254 being obviously the most common. Then Red Borders and the Tin Tops about the same for availability? With the Ju Ju Drums being much tougher to come by then any of the Colgan's.

Would love to hear input and see any discs from others collections

My one and only.

I can't add much value due to a lack of experience with Colgan's in general, but these cards have really grown on me. I'll edit this post later with a pic of my Honus Wagner Colgan's I got at National.

I always liked this issue too. It has a lot of minor leaguers. Some of the cards are exceedingly tough.

There is a near set in the fall 2018 REA auction.

In my opinion, here is the order of scarcity, from most common to least:

E254 Colgan's Chips (by far most common)
E270 Red Border
E270 Tin Tops (just slightly tougher to come by than Red Borders)
E286 Ju-Ju Drums
E254 Colgan's Chips with '208 in Present Series' on back (may be about same
as Ju-Ju Drums, but definitely don't see them as often)

Brian

Those are great, Jeff. If you need the Atlanta Walker just let me know which you’d swap it for. 🤑

Andy, thanks for info link. You guys remember the Skydash find? Many thought he wasn't for real, but then he posted, sure enough they were real and he had them. The Jim Thorpe amazed me! Would love to have that one.

Default Round Candy Issues...

I have always loved these little round candy issues! Here are a couple of super rare disc and a Colgan's Invoice... (I believe the Welchouce is the only known Tin top of him as about 10 years ago it was not in the SCD, and I sent in info and they added it to the checklist the following year. Of note, I bought the Tin Top from a small find in Canada via Ebay)

Default Colgan's

Since the Skydash Tin Tops find I think the Red Borders are the toughest to find and really hard to find centered. I wonder if anyone has ever attempted to put either set together I would think that would be impossible but you never know what could be out there.

The double whammy of rarity! One of the top 10 toughest cards in the set with the toughest back. Great card!

The Flick with Series of 208 is a great little card. This E270 red border came with its container. Not much border chipping at all which is nice on these.

I imagine Violet Chips had a floral flavor. Not something that would be very popular today but it was a different time.

Cool ad. If that was a container which held a card then the price of the card was less than .10 cents and probably a lot less relative to the product. Not bad for an E270.
