Full Version: Why cant I find information?

I have been searching various sites including Ebay and I cannot find anyone selling a 1937 O pee chee V300 Johnny Allen card? Why is this? Is it so common so as to have little value or so rare that no one wants to sell one. Any thoughts??
The set in general was limited and though not the rarest set out there, they are not the easiest to come across when looking for particular cards in the set unless you're looking for a star or a high grade version that someone is trying to flip. Being that Allen is one of the "commons" in the set, it's going to be that much more difficult to locate one, in my humble opinion anyway.

Here's a completed auction of a partial set (25/40) back in 2009 that has some info.

PM on the way as well.
The quest for Pre WWII cards is tough. Add to that, that this issue is OPC, Depression era and short printed. Then it becomes almost impossible to even find any known copies in any condition.....JMO

Thanks...its not that I am looking for a Johnny Allen card of that season. I own one, and can't seem to get much information on its value. Prob have to take it to the city to a card grader/expert.
We aren't allowed to give out pricing but it is listed in the OPG.
