Default E105 Mello Mints...Scarcity?

Posted By: Dave

How easily have people been able to come across these? At least for me..I rarely see them on ebay...I feel they are harder to find than what some resources actually say about them. I also feel prices on them are somewhat unknown...or flexible at best.

By the way...Leon, are anyone else in Texas...is it true these cards still pop up more often in Texas?

Default E105 Mello Mints...Scarcity?

Posted By: leon

As a relative "amateur" in the hobby I have always thought these were scarce but not rare, whatever that means. With that being said there are subsets of Mello-Mints, relative to their scarcity, imo. Some, like Bescher, Knight (I think), Lajoie, and a few others ...are seen often, while others are almost never seen. In that respect they are sort of like Tango Eggs cards. As for them being found more in Texas, than other places, I have not seen that be the case in my short tenure in the hobby. I am sure others know far more than I and I hope they will chime in...best regards

Interesting...I realize they aren't E107's...but putting a set together of Mello Mints none the less would seem to be pretty darn difficult. I believe it was old cardboard that said they were found more often in Texas..but I don't know how old that information is either.

That is funny Denny....I swear I've seen that Knight card in PSA 7 several times on ebay...unless it's the same exact one that keeps coming up for auction. How long have you had that one?

Posted By: Joe D.

not knowing much about the set....

Along the lines of what Leon mentioned....
what is the theory on some players having a bunch of known examples.... and others very few?

the often seens, and the never seens

Maybe people are sitting on the lowest grade-pop ones, and they will show up at some time?

is there a prevailing theory?
