Is this sticker too rare to even be sought after? I ask this question as it was posed
To me this afternoon.

Check with Jeff Allender's checklist site for a brief mention of what may be this sticker. Assuming it is the one, it was never distributed normally, so that should make it rare.

As to its value, well that is a whole other question. Rarity is important, but you must have enough collectors who want it for there to be demand and a good market.

The beauty of this hobby is that it is so subjective. That Silver Eagle sticker means nothing to me, but somebody else could be looking for it for years.

An item can be too rare only if it has never been heard of or is a custom-made unlicensed issue. The fact that this sticker appears to be known and has some kind of story behind it would generally mean that you could find people who are interested in acquiring it.

How much they are interested and how hard they are to find is something you will have to discover when you try to sell it. Wink

I have never seen "Cross" or heard of anyone that has.

I have noticed that people say the "Souls of Black" and "Ball and Chain" stickers are very hard to find also, but ironically, just looking right now "you know where" I see several auctions that have those 2 with the other 16

Souls of Black and Ball and Chain are short print.
Back in the day I opened a couple cases. The first
case had only 16 different stickers while the
Second case had I think 5 boxes that had generous
amounts of the short prints.

While the Rockcards set might not rank among the must-haves of the 90's, it is certainly a known commodity. I heard about the set in the late 90's when I bought a set of the 1991 Anaheim promos.

When I look at the card trading threads on this forum I see people looking to complete a good diversity of sets. Back in the 90's, a collector could go to comic books store and pick up some packs of different sets but decide not to chase a few. Something like Rockcards could get more interest now that people are hearing there are some rare-but-still-attainable stickers to chase compared to the increasing number of near-impossible-to-find hits of recent sets.

Was the Slayer Eagle sticker another short-print/recalled item or was it given out at shows?

It was pulled from production, early enough that it's not included in the poster of the set. The poster was included in the cases.

Not that many people seem to care but one was given away for $26 yesterday at that devil site.

Well, I guess my original question has been answered. I just sold my last SLAYER EAGLE, so I can put that item to rest.

So how much did you get for your Slayer Eagle? Did it turn out to be rare and wanted, or just rare and forgotten?
