Anyone care about E75/E76?
Not sure why I like these, as they are pretty ugly and some of the drawings don't really look like the fighter pictured even. I've been following them for about 15 years, and found the E76's to be significantly tougher, though not truly rare. Seems the last year or so, more E76's have been put on eBay at pretty low prices. Very few who put the cards up for sale know the difference between E75/E76.

I've always thought the checklist indicated that E75 was issued after the E76 version of the set. Anyone have the Attell/Ketchell errors? I've only seen 1 of each. There is also an E76 McGovern with Jimmy Britt's name out there, but I'm not aware of any other oddities.

Here's the McGovern-Britt:

I owned this card at one point.

I assume that since the error resulted from a misalignment of the blue ink there would be an entire sheet of them.

Perfect timing, picked up a Ketchell with Attell name error.

I have seen 2 copies of each of the Ketchell/Attell E75 error cards, though I am sure a couple more are known in the hobby but not to me.

The E76 McGovern is even cooler.

You should throw Robertson's Candy(V153) in the e75/76 group as well... And they are really tough!

Yup. Canada, eh.

The Robertsons are so tough, I don't think I've even seen all 20 cards yet. Does anyone know if the Robertson Candy Co. was a subsidiary of American Caramel? I've never been sure if these are better catalogued as a back variation of the same set as E76 or a truly different issue with the same images from, presumably, the same printer.
