The first that we know of: Short-card Hot Wheels Datsun 510 Wagon Super TH found in the Czech Republic…

It may not be considered big news to some, but considering this is the first time we have seen one, we definitely think it is worth reporting.

One of our friends from the Czech Republic, who goes by Milo (and rhyan1 on HWC), just found the Datsun Wagon Super TH on a short card.  We have been perusing certain sites and eBay to see if one has been found, but we have found nothing until Milo’s find.  We are glad to see it exists.

For some reason, short-card Super TH’s have been almost nonexistent the last few years.  The ratio of Supers to mainlines seems to be much greater with short cards.  We have no idea why, but it has been consistently reported in Europe, where mostly short cards are distributed.

Because of that, short carded Supers have become a bit of a big deal.  Obviously a short-carded Datsun makes that much more of cool item.  That makes Milo’s find a very interesting collector’s item.  We doubt there will be too many of them…

If you find, or hear of someone finding, any short carded Supers, let us know…

(Thanks Milo for sharing.)

UPDATE: It looks like some have been found in Australia and elsewhere.  We are glad to see these updates.  From AJ McDonald in Australia:

  1. There is a thread on the german HW collectors board, dedicated to $TH finds. They are showing up again, slowly, after a long long period of total absence.
    I have just found a $TH Rrroadster myself, 2 weeks ago.
