The following list is of labels I generally stock, although many are quite rare and are slowly disappearing. It is an above average representation of what is available to melon label collectors. Prices are based on my "Millennium Guide to Fruit Crate Labels" and on prices realized from eBay auctions in 1999. Prices and availability may change without notice on any of these titles. Because of the recent rise in popularity of melon label, especially those from Arizona, it has caused a series of new "finds" or newly discovered caches of labels. Several melon labels have come onto the market only recently, and are available in bundle quantities, like Blue Jack, Gunsmoke, Desert Call, First Grade, Admiral, Desert Lily and more. But the rarer labels, ones there are fewer than 30 or so known, are soaring in prices at auction. A really good collection of melon labels would have about 100 pieces in it. The list below offers a starting place.
