Default How rare are 1917 D328 Weil Baking Co. cards?

I was just curious how tough the 1917 D328 set are to find? Looking through the population reports there doesn't seem to be very many of them that have been submitted. Thanks, Andy

you're right, the population reports would suggest that they are far tougher than Boston Store and E135 (Collins-McCarthy), but comparable to the Standard Biscuit back:

PSA:

Boston Store = 328
Collins-McCarthy = 356
Weil Baking = 6
Standard Biscuit = 12

SGC:

Boston Store = 1,030
Collins-McCarthy = 876
Weil Baking = 73
Standard Biscuit = 42

Those are pretty significant differences. I picked up my Weil Baking Sam Rice rookie on eBay back in 2004 and haven't seen another since. Here's a front and back scan of the card, which has subsequently been graded by SGC (one of three Rice Weil's graded by SGC):

Default How weird is that

I saw that Oscar Vitt and thought immediately that I used to own that very card. Except turns out mine is(was) a Standard Biscuit with almost the exact same off-center look:


Anyway, I still have ol' Pinch Thomas:


BTW, I believe the blank-backs are even tougher than the Weils, but demand doesn't seem to be all that great and thus I have not seen a significant premium attached for them.

Default 1917

I only have one. They are tough. A beat up common sold on ebay a couple of weeks ago. I was expecting it to sell for fifty bucks or so but it ended up at $328. That shows you how much I know about their values.

The 1916's are pretty easy to find and many of the lower grade commons sell for $25 to $40 but the 1917's seem to more scarce.

What is the difference between a 1916 and a 1917 Weil?
