Heroes of Jokum Fest Card Corner trivia

(who has and who doesn't)

# 51 (over 35 copies - not that scarce) "The first Papa Bear card that I found was at a yard sale in Wallingford. It was kind of hidden amongst some old Aqua Follies programs. I really thought I had something. Then I kept running into 'em. By about the third or fourth copy I realized it wasn't so rare. Papa Bear is still my favorite card. I'd put a beat #51 up against a mint #5 any day of the week. Of course, that's just me" Jim "Bobo" Buss

The coveted #57 Ron Shea card (only known copy in Papa Bear collection in good condition but with bent corners and large diagonal tear across card, taped unprofessionally, most likely by a family member)

A near mint copy of Heroes of Jokum #57 is reported to have appeared on eBay in 2015 at a starting bid of $13,000. The ad was mysteriously pulled off eBay on its second day of listing with no bids

There are at least two known Heroes of Jokum Cards with no numbers that were originally issued, the common Bobo card and the much scarcer Rhea Rolfe card. Near mint copies of both cards are in the Papa Bear Collection. Occasionally other no number Heroes of Jokum cards turn up but these are generally considered bootlegs

#45 (over 35 copies - not that scarce) "The first Polish Canary card that I found was at an estate sale in Lake City. It was kind of hidden amongst some Sheriff Tex memorabilia. I really thought I had something. Then I kept running into 'em. By about the third or fourth copy I realized it wasn't so rare. Polish Canary is still my favorite card. I'd put a beat #45 up against a mint #26 any day of the week. Of course, that's just me" Johnny Chase aka Pinehurst Slim

#13 Bob "Kid" West (less than 5 copies) It has been rumored that a box of #13 HJ cards was accidently tossed into the ship canal after a "Blues From the Past" all-nighter in Ballard
