Default Sets: How many really exist?

Picked up a 62 Jell-O Baseball partial set today (120/200) and got to thinking about how many complete sets of these are really out there. There is currently no complete sets in the PSA database. The only one listed is 57% complete. In addition, I am in the process of finishing the Dietsche Tigers 1907 set as well ( 80% done). Are there 10/100/1000 of these in private collections? Feel free to throw other sets you are all trying to complete as well. There is obviously no way to really know but was just curious on your thoughts and looking forward to hearing from you all.

The 1907 Dietsche Set of 15 is relatively easy. Cobb is expensive but available. If you want the Cobb fielding variation then it is "very hard " to complete. If you want the complete 1907-09 Dietsche Detroit Set I would think only a very few Sets of all 3 exist. I have one. If anyone else knows of one please list. This set was great but frustrating to pursue.
Not sure on the Jello Sets.

It is estimated that there are fewer that 10 complete 62 Jell-O sets in existence. I probably know a little about the only PSA set on the registry. Would love to hear what cards were included in the partial set you got. After I get back my next few submissions I will be at near 80% complete. A complete set with numerical grades....I believe will be impossible.

Default E107

The E107 set has to be one of the hardest. I think there was a near set in the Chris Sullivan collection but don't know of any 148/148 in existence. Would be a major accomplishment of patience not even considering price. Would love to know if one or more exists(I don't track set registries so maybe my answer lies there)

From past forum posts, there have been at least 2 E107 sets that were closer than the Sullivan collection to being complete. Not sure if either were ever actually finished though. There are a number of sets such as N172, W600, E104-3 that are for all practical purposes, are impossible to complete as the full checklist is unknown. As far as sets that seem impossible, but have been completed, I would vote for Jim Blumenthal's N167 set. In general, I think there are a lot more sets completed and hidden in collections than we generally believe.

With the exception of the relatively easy Mayo, A&G, and Goodwin Champ sets almost all 19th century sets are impossible or almost impossible to complete.

The 1923 W572 set has, to my knowledge, never been completed. There is one board member who is the closest I think there has ever been to completing it but even he is still 4 cards away and one of those 4 may not exist.

There are actually only 197 cards in the set. Three cards were omitted. #29, #82 and 176. And while 80% isn't "easy", it's nothing compared to the last 10%. The hard core collectors of this set have a good 20-30 years head start on me and it may take me that long to complete it. There are several people much more knowledgeable about the set than I am....I'm still in A ball while they are Hall of Famers. From what I gather, many people have tried to complete this set but gave up due to the difficulty in completing it. I've read where others completed the 61-63 Post and 63 Jell-O but don't even bother trying this one. So far, for me, it's been a labor of love!

can you elaborate on why the set is so hard to complete or why certain cards are tougher?
