Scarcity List Credit: Tim Cathey, Jim Rivera, Brian Weisner, and Art Martineau


This list is based solely on the overall scarcity of one back in relation to another. No emphasis or additional weight was placed on a particular subject or subset within a back group that is believed or perceived to be more difficult than the rest.

Each collector's experience will be different and they may find that over a short period of time or with a given subject that their difficulty in acquiring different backs doesn't exactly match this list.


* Ty Cobb Tobacco
This back is controversial to say the least and many collectors do not feel it is a T206, while others believe it is. Compelling arguments have been made for both sides but neither have yet to produce sufficient evidence, in our opinion, to definitively show it is or isn't part of the same set. Until that time it will remain on our list as it was originally classified as a T206.

** Red Cross & Coupon Type 1
We don't believe that either of these backs are part of the T206 set and haven't included them on the current list for that reason. However many collectors do believe they are or possibly could be T206's so we included them to show where we believe they would be ranked if included.

*** Old Mill (SL) Brown & Blank Back
These two backs were not inserted into packs and both are essentially printers scrap. Some may not consider these necessary for a complete back run.
