Posted By: <b>robert a</b><p>Lee,<br /><br />I think it's hard to say.<br /><br />When blank backed t207s hit the scene last year, no one had ever seen them before. Then, suddenly the market was flooded with them. This created a lack of demand for them relative to the blank backed t206s which have been on some back collectors' wantlists for some time.<br /><br />Rob

Posted By: <b>Jason L</b><p>back collectors wantlists for some time...?<br /><br />That sounds so funny. I (very honestly) am not criticizing, but it just sounds funny to collect the absence of something! <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14>

Posted By: <b>Lee</b><p>I have seen past posts (did a search) for t207 blank backs on net54 and came upon the t207 blank back find post from 2005. It sounds like there were a lot of them on the market a few years ago, but I believe they have since dried up. In the past year, I have seen or know of 5 blank backed t206's that traded hands, including my current blank back t206. As for beyond / earlier than this past year is what I was wondering about, because i just got back into the hobby about a year ago. I was wondering about the broad scope of maybe a few years to 10 years of Blank Back history if anyone knows.....Thanks for the input so far.

Posted By: <b>MVSNYC</b><p>jason- as funny as robert's statement sounds, i can relate to it for sure...i would consider myself an advanced T206 back collector, and an authentic (unskinned) "blank back" eluded me for so long. i just recently did a trade with a fellow board member for a clean vg example of a common T206 (it appears to be hand-cut), and i am very excited to finally have a blank back in my "stable".<br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Lee</b><p>I just checked out Frank's site, but he does not have scans on there. Also, he stated that he is not selling cards this summer.

Posted By: <b>Lee</b><p>Ok, now that I know there are plenty out there, what do you guys think a poor condition one that looks vg-ex (but hand cut) with the obvious defect that brings it down is a small tear?

Posted By: <b>robert a</b><p>Guys, all the t207s with blank backs I've seen are hand cut.<br />Most likely someone had a sheet or two of them and cut them down themselves recently.<br />

Posted By: <b>peter ullman</b><p>i have a mcgraw that's hand cut...reasonably well. I don't think they're that common...they're just around cause theres not much interest...and maybe some suspicion. I DO think they're much rarer than t206 blank backs.<br /><br />pete ullman<br /><img src="http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i176/ullmandds/mcgrawfr-1.jpg"><br />
