Default Early E-cards - Where do they go from here?

Thought I'd start a prewar card thread and was recently thinking about early E cards. They seem to have been meandering since the end of the caramel craze. I'm by no means an expert but wanted to ask those that collect them diligently, has popularity/demand waned, increased or stayed flat over the last few years?

I would think there would be an uptick in popularity/demand due to their overall relative scarcity. But it doesn't seem like a lot have come up for auction over the last couple years. So are they being kept stashed away? Maybe more has come to market than I realize and just haven't seen it.

Also, I'm curious to know if there was a good selection of them at the National?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts and insight.

Feel free to share any early E's that may be "stashed" away in your collection.

In all seriousness, even the most common are much more difficult than t206.

E93 - Cobb
E92 Nadja - Bemis, Bescher, Bridwell, Cobb, Crawford, Donovan, Doolan, Doyle (with bat), Evers, Kleinow, Knight, Lobert, Mathewson, McGraw, Tinker, Wagner (both), Zimmerman

E/T Young Backrun - Need E90-1, E92 black Crofts Candy, E92 Dockman, E101, E105, T216 (all versions)

Definitely love the Honus Wagner E cards as some of his other cards from his playing days are out of my price range. I think I've owned an E95, E91 and I currently have an E102. I'm not sure on E cards in general, but HOF E cards should always be pretty steady. However, I've never seen a dramatic price increase for them
Now looking for 1947 Bond Bread Jackie Robinson rookie cards (11/13). View my collection here...

Early E cards just don't get the love they used to.

Did someone say Early E Cards?

N28, N162, T205, T209-1, T3, E92 Family, E121, 1934 Goudey, 1953 Bowman...oh man, this is getting out of control.

Great transactions with 25+ Net 54 members!

I only have a few E cards but it seems to me that the non-major HOFers have been pretty flat since I got back in to collecting in 2014.

Default My only signed e-card

And it definitely is "stashed away" among its signed tobacco brothers. This beauty was sold among all the signed T206 cards from the Great Pittsburgh Find of 2007.
