Star Trek TOS 2 Mirror Mirror Cards....
Is it possible for one seller to have sold over 75 Star Trek Mirror Mirror Cards?

Perhaps a former Skybox employee? Only dealer I ever knew who dealt in Trek that heavy is long long gone and I don't think even he could have pulled that off really. I would be cautious, but his feedback is obviously good so the buyers must be happy. Guess it depends on how bad you want those cards at a much lower price than everyone else

I'm aware of someone buying Mirror cards from "Probably" the same seller and he's happy with the appearance of the cards.

I need these cards but I'm not willing to pay the price for them even if this dealer got them through the SkyBox Back Door.

I'm also suprised it's not more than 75 as for quite some time he's had/sold Mirror Cards on ebay.

Back in June, after he sold his 3rd Shatner, I asked where he got all the cards. (Funny thing was, I thought 3 Shatners was a lot) His response was ->

My father passed away in April and these were among many things he left me. He had a lot of weird things in his collection; the box of cards I shipped from his house weighed over 80 pounds. I do not know where he got them. I did not know he had them or what their value was until recently.

I just took it at face value, but then this evening I stumbled across another one of his Mirror Mirror auctions and then looked at his feedback. He is now at 15 recorded Shatners, plus those that have not left feedback, Like me for one....

15+ Shatners, 15+ Nimoys, and 45+ of the rest is a lot for one collector, is it not?

Funny enough, only 1 McCoy.

Yeah this seller got my attention too a few months ago and I ask him the same question and he reply same answer as ajdedo. His father should be an employee at Skybox I am pretty sure.

How many Mirror Mirror cards do you think Skybox held back from boxes? I'm sure some for replacement, but 75 is a high number for supposedly only 200 of each made.

Perhaps he procured an uncut sheet? Are the cards numbered on the back?

As I stated in earlier post, the cards from this seller appear correct as someone I know has purchased several from him and compared them to others from different dealers.

The ebay seller who has sold a great many Mirror cards continues to sell them. He must have an endless supply.
