Nowhere near complete, but here's one I've been working on.

Exactly 13 - T206 backs were printed on each of the Exclusive 12 subjects in the 460-only series. Illustrated here is the complete run of the McGraw cards.
The UZIT is extremely rare. The red HINDU and OLD MILL cards are pretty tough. American Beauty 460, CYCLE 460, and EPDG are moderately tough.
The LENOX or PIEDMONT 460 (Factory #42) cards were not printed in this group.

Thank You Sean for bumping this thread; as you know, I am relatively new to this board and have never seen this thread (and certainly better reading than the Ultimate Trade up or Sands of our Lives Drama I waster 30 minutes on this morning). Back Runs are SO cool and I am 100% addicted to T206 backs! Current back-related pet projects: Tinker Bat off (really only need the AB, EPDG and Fact 42; Evers Chicago Shirt (tougher back still need are BL 460, Drum, CB Fact 42 and Tolstoi); HOF Tolstoi run, and; complete back run (preferably in HOF where possible).

Few things I have learned on this/thoughts:
1. It is an expensive endeavor, but so rewarding when you get something you need;
2. There are soooo many helpful and cool people in this hobby and on this board
3. Notwithstanding the above, you Gotta love the jerks who find out you are doing a back run and try to shake you down for way more than a card is worth bc they know you need it (my answer -- Go F$%# yourself)
4. Just when you think you have decided on 1-2 frolics/projects, more and more pop up -- this truly is the Monster
5. I find myself, even on common backs, caring as much about the way the back looks as the front; and on the rare backs, its 80% about the backs (especially with the big boy backs)
6. Paper loss on back is pretty much a nonstarter (but I say that as I continue to eye the BL 460 Baker in ML)
7. I love baseball Cards!!!!

Ryan, you also need to do a Sid Smith back run. How hard could it be? Piedmont, Old Mill, and Hindu.

Good point but I am afraid the Piedmont could be a problem...!

I agree that this is one of my more favorite posts also. Even though I don't have any pictures to post yet since I'm collecting all T206 front/back combos and not really focusing on any one card, on average I have many 4 to 6 card back runs and Hal Chase Blue Portrait is the most at 17 card backs. As I get closer to complete back runs, I'll start posting some pictures. Seeing some of the non T206 back runs posted here is making me want to start another project but I'm trying to stay focused for now and enjoying everyone else's posts and pictures. Thanks everyone for sharing.

I added the Lenox from REA, so I'm as close to finished as I'm likely to ever get. I'm missing the Red Hindu, which is one of one and belongs to David Hall. I'm also missing the T215 Red Cross, the only one I'm aware of belongs to Richard Masson ( same with my Merkle run: I'm only missing the T215 that Richard owns). Anyway, here goes:
