I was almost brought up thinking a Darby Chocolate was as close to a perfect find as possible . Why was this last one so cheap ? Relatively .

At least its not restored like many of these "garage" cards were back in the 80-90s.
It went for what I thought it should.

A piece of cardboard CUT FROM THE SIDE OF A CANDY BOX the Holy Grail?

For me it should at least have been issued inside the box, or along with the box. Not actually part of the box.

I know Darby's have a lot of history and acceptance, but I still can't see how they are much different from W555's, E95 notebook cutouts and anything else that may have been "cut out" from something never intended as a premium, insert or stand alone item.

Ever since the write-ups they got in the early issues of VCBC, they have been high profile cards. I think part of the allure is simply their rarity.

Yes it is rare, but it is beat. It went for what it should have. The big book lists this card at $4,800 in VG.

There were a group of Darby cutouts that were found nailed onto the wall of someone's garage. Apparently, they were all fire damaged. Is this Collins card one of the cards from that group?

In any event, the final price seems very strong in light of the condition.
