Just curious - Does anyone have 2019 Scott Specialized Catalog and noticed if this "bad boy" (not the 4905c on top, but the bottom one) has been anointed with a number or a catalog value yet?

It's not in the regular 2019. Just the same old blurb.

Thanks Eyeonwall,

I see 6 or 7 listed on eBay from $39.95 to $69.99; and also found this 2016 Linn's Article:

...Maybe if we asked Scott to read their Mission Statement one more time?

My opinion is if the stamp can carry the mail it should be listed.

If I ever hit the lottery, I would buy that $39 one and send myself three letters using the die-cut $1 SC#4898 look-alike and the two 50¢ SC# 2452 look-alikes and then submit the covers to PSE!!

...a bit spendy just to prove a point, but these are absolutely valid for postage.

Quite true, but you may have to convince your local P O clerk that it is.

If you would read their Listing Policy on page 18 of the Specialized

under #6 of what they exclude "or stamps sold only in conjunction with other products"

These could only be purchased as part of the yearbook.

Sorry to keep beating a dead horse, but I think there is still a faint pulse...

That quoted phrase refers to what they characterize as "other egregiously exploitative issues" earlier in the sentence - which may indeed apply, along with the 2013 "Upright Jenny's" or even the press sheets which both DO have listings - but IMHO, since they were issued specifically for collectors who bought the yearbooks, not listing them under this policy excuse is not in keeping with their stated mission of the catalogues, or even the lead-in paragraph of the Listing Policy which states "It is Scott's objective to seek reasons why a stamp should be listed, rather than why it should not."

Anyhow, thanks for pointing out that section of the catalogue - after reading the whole thing through, I think it does more to strengthen the argument for getting it listed than for keeping it out.
