Default What's your best "no back scan" surprise?

It's always fun when you take a chance on a card where the seller doesn't have a scan of the reverse, and then it arrives with a rare back. I won this T205 toughie a couple days ago, no back scan provided. It arrived today and was a P42, which was a nice surprise. Nothing earth-shattering, I know, but a good deal nonetheless.

What's the best "no back scan" surprise you've received in the mail?

I collect sets. All of them.

I bought a T213 Coupon that I figured must be a type 2, when it arrived it was a type 3. I sold the card , so no scan to show.

Collecting PCL, Southern Association, and type cards.

1927 Exhibit Rixey with back coupon stamp. The coupon program started in earnest in 1928 with the PCL and regular sets but you can find the occasional '27 with a coupon on it, probably from a very last gasp stock of the cards.

I bought a T206 Merkle with a Piedmont back. The seller provided a scan of the back, but it was a poor scan. The sales price was about $30. When the card arrived I found out that it was a Factory 42.

Bought a group of about 100 T206's back in 2008 and there were 3 black back Southern Leagues in the lot which were not advertised. I still have one of them. the value of those 3 were worth more then the cost of the entire 100 card group.

I bought a lot of 40 T206 cards around 2000-01 for $600 and got an upside down Piedmont with parts of four backs. George Davis, who was recently elected to the HOF at that time, was on front. When I asked on a pre-Net54 message board (wasn't the full count board) I got offers in the thread immediately for $250, $400, $800 and two people who said they would top any offer (one offer was before the $800). So I held on to the card figuring it was worth a lot.
