Posted By: <b>Mike Williams&nbsp; </b><p>So we already know that the E92 Cobb (Crofts Candy and Cocoa) is a very tough card. To those that own...or have handled this Cobb, which of these two backs seems to be the tougher of the two? I have personally viewed/handled three Crofts Cocoa and one Crofts Candy. Curious how the numbers pan out...thanks!

Posted By: <b>David Watkins</b><p>Mike- I have a nice E92 Cobb candy in vg-ex condition. I have talked with quite a few people regarding this exact card and would say the cocoa is much harder at least in my experience. I did email Lew Lipset about 3 or 4 months regarding this also. Here is what he said<BR><BR>I have seen and owned the E92 with all three known backs (Crofts & Allen,<BR>Crofts Cocoa and Nadja) and have probably owned 6-7 in my life. It is a very<BR>underrated Cobb card, without question the most difficult of all the Caramel<BR>Cobbs (less the impossible sets). However it is not longer considered an<BR>impossible card.<BR><BR>The card looks nice, in my opinion easily worth $1,500-$2,000, though my<BR>recollection is the guides price it poorly which would make it difficult to<BR>get that.<BR><BR>Thanks<BR><BR>Mike- I hope this helps<BR>David
