Default Opinion On Lenox Back

Because I am not sure, looking for expertise on black or brown back on this item. I believe it to be black, looking for comments.

Thanks for any feedback.

It's BROWN......

Who's on the front ?

Only certain T206 guys can have brown LENOX backs.

Hoping there is a good luck story behind this card. Sure looks brown! Ditto on Ted's question.

Oh wow! You should send it to PSA if you can.

Is that a picture or a scan? In your image it does look like it could be brown but the lighting can play a role in that if it is a picture and too bright. Do you have any other T206 brands that are either black or brown in color where you can compare them side by side?

Who is on the front?

You have a shot and I am so rooting for you Either way a Lenox is lovely. Good luck and thank you for sharing!

It looks brown, but I wonder if it results from an overly bright scan. It seems much more brown than the card that I have here at home. The shade of brown should be as dark as the caption on the front of the card. Please show us more scans of both the front and the back.

Awesome card. Love the corners and how amazingly even they are worn. Also how even the wear is down the sides of the card. There is a ton of paper lint in the scan too. I am going to say this card is rebacked/fake and probably has a HOF or someone tougher on the front to add value. Also going to say its a Black Lenox with a bright scan to blame for the color change. Just my observation

Corners do appear to be eerily similar rounding.
lower left corner looks a bit fishy as well as the left side of the card.
Interested to see who is on the front...

Default Looks Brown

Looks Brown. Quite a bright picture though so it could be deceiving. Would love to know the front ????????????????????????
