I was getting ready to update the price guide for the 1-XXX cards, and thought I would post on what is a semi-common occurrence in this set of cards. The Nickel Tour says that multiple publishers were working on printing these cards (that’s why there are slightly different number combinations 1-xxx, 1-xxx SCxxxx and 1-xxx DTxxxxxC). Sometimes the same images are on cards with different numbers, sometimes different images are on cards with the same number. In this particular case, we have a different image, but an identical back.
I am just guessing, but the park must have been using three producers of cards because they were selling tons of them. Nowadays, a lot of these cards are very common and not hard to find. Some are harder…but I have to believe they are out there somewhere.
Anyway…I’ll have this section of the price guide up in the next day or so.
Until next time…
