That was relisted. It was listed at the same price, and didnít sell. I think itís a good price, actually, but people donít want to spend more than they have to for the couple cards in the lot they actually need.

$4000 would be a good price, but there is a reserve which is likely much higher.

$4,000 would be a good price just for Cracked, Ratz, and the #21 Jolly.  In the peak, any of these three might have commanded that price alone.

I imagine the reserve was much much higher.

 So I recently bought a collection of die cuts and in that collection about 20% had what I thought was toning but now I realized that toning is unbelievablely uniform so I've gone back through other diet cuts I had and I'm realizing about 10% of the cards I have have the exact dark back and very uniform with each other I would think Toning would be more gradual with large variations in the shading.   I haven't found any number variations with the same colors so wondering if this is related to a particular early run.

Iím pretty sure it is toning, though certain materials might be more susceptible to it I guess.

I'm wondering if these are like the series 16 beige backs.  Those are uniformly beige and similar to each other.   I agree these die cuts look tone but the glue or something must be different that they age completely differently

Could it boil down to the manner of long-term storage by the previous owner(s)?  Iím thinking along the lines of how much browning you would see in a 50-year old comic book thatís been thrown into a box in the attic vs. one thatís been bagged first.

How do the borders look on the fronts?  Are they more off-white than typical, consistent with the backs?

Die cut fronts almost always look snow white no matter how toned the backs are, for some reason.
