A few years ago I did an analysis of known specimens per the grading companies. At the time there was one Donovan and three Corbetts. I've since seen two more distinct Donovans and two more Corbetts. So I'd put the count at 3 and 5 cards, respectively. I fully expect that there are some others out there, just as there are probably some additional Graziano cards waiting to be found.

Brent, glad to see someone in the family got the lot. Not to mention verifying that the sale is real (never can tell with auctions these days).

I was really amazed how high it went. I bid up to around a grand then dropped out. I wonder what the Donovan and Corbett are worth individually today? I'd think somewhere in four figures. Unless I sell mine, in which case $200 max.
It seems there are 4 to surface. I have scans of 3 I linked in the imgur album above, but this newest Donovan was described by Butcher as being in "Nice Condition," which means it's probably not the 3rd one I have a scan of. I think the missing card in your count is the second image here with the heavy crease down the middle that sold for $40:

Can anybody share their information or scans of Donovan's not shown in my post? I know of another one a collector in California claims to have but haven't got an image or proof of it, so I'm not counting that possible one in my tally.

I think that 4th one slipped by many of us. Nice catch for someone!

Leon, at times I do feel like I'm hoarder(boxing cards) but not by intent, more by laziness...
