Default Most aesthetically pleasing T206 back design

I looked around and didn't see a poll on this and I'm very curious about it. What do you think is the most aesthetically pleasing T206 back design? Not most desirable or anything, just the design that looks best to you.

Since there's a limit to 10 options on the poll, I'm grouping a few that are very similar (while leaving off blank back and Ty Cobb backs, due to the debate around if they are included in T206 to begin with).

Edit: I left of Uzit, too, since there really aren't any design elements to that back.

Hands down Polar Bear, I don't think it gets more unique than that back followed by Red Hindu and UZIT. Such beautiful colors.

Polar Bear is great, and certainly stands out strongest amongst the other backs. But something really clicks with the Carolina Brights for me.

Definitely a beauty. By far the nicest frame amongst the backs IMO.

I think there is something special about the Old Mill southern league variation as well, it's nice seeing a "wordy" back.

American Beauty no border is the best looking.

Polar Bear is tops for T206. The Red Cycle T207 backs reigns supreme over all backs though and it’s not even close imo.

They won't come anywhere near the top in this poll, but I think if people were honest about it, and disregarded their natural bias towards rarity, then both Piedmont and Sweet Caporal would win out. They're the most common, but also the best looking.

EPDG is my favorite. I'm a little surprised it currently has only 2 votes. But Sovereign is my 2nd favorite & it has yet to get a vote.

Here's a link to see all of the backs

I think the Sweet Cap Fac. 649 Overprint is the sharpest SC.
