Default Red Cobb - 26 diff backs....your favorite T206 Cobb is ?

Posted By: Ted Zanidakis

The T206 Ty Cobb (red portrait) must be the most available T206 subject. And, this is understandable,
as it was printed with at least 25 different backs.

Here is a list of these backs in their scarcity ranking....as I've seen them in 26 years of collecting T206's.
Others might differ with this ranking....and, that's fine....anyhow, what are your inputs on this....and, do
you have any new backs to report ?







The scarcest..........

Brown LENOX
Broad Leaf 460
DRUM
Red HINDU
UZIT

Next scarcest group....

American Beauty 350 (frame)
Carolina Brights
Cycle 460
El Principe de Gales
Black LENOX
Piedmont 460 Fac. 42
Sovereign 460

Moderately tough...........

Cycle 350
OLD MILL
Piedmont 460 Fac 25
Sovereign 350
Sweet Cap 350 Fac 25
Sweet Cap 350 Fac 30
Sweet Cap 460 Fac 25
Sweet Cap 460 Fac 30
Sweet Cap 460 Fac 42
Sweet Cap 460 Fac 42 ovpt
Tolstoi

Most available..........

Piedmont 350 Fac 25
POLAR BEAR

I was just wondering a couple days ago how many different backs the red Cobb had, & then I see your post. Thanks for posting! I don't own a single one, but any one of them is currently at the top of my wantlist.


edited to add that I've recently realized the beauty of T206's & how fascinating all the back varities are. I may be a little slow, but I get there eventually!!!

Ted,

I believe the six superperints (and hence Cobb Red) are available with SC 460/30.

They may also be possible with AB 460 and Brown Lenox.

Thanks for the additional two backs.....I will include them in the appropriate grouping on the list.
I posted this Thread in response to two identical inquiries (on the Red Cobb) from Net54er's. As
I greatly value your opinion.....how close is my subjective ranking of the different backs for this
Cobb ?

2nd question - since you mentioned the 6 Super Prints, can you explain why the Evers (Chi-bat)
is considerably tougher than the other five with respect to the scarcer backs ?

I am adding the Brown LENOX to the list per Scot Reader's suggestion. If this "baby" ever shows up........
it will rival the Red Cobb with a Ty Cobb back, in order of scarcity.

Incidently, I just can't add the Ty Cobb back to this list of Red Cobb's. Some would say he is a "T206"....
while others will say not.....there is no certainty.

Ted,

I think you are pretty close on the order; although I think

Piedmont 460/25
Sweet Caporal 350/30
Sweet Caporal 460/30
Sweet Caporal 460/42 OP

are less difficult than

Cycle 350
Old Mill
Sovereign 350
Sweet Caporal 460/25
Sweet Caporal 460/42
Tolstoi

Not counting the King of the T206 Red Portrait World, the King of the Smoking Tobacco World, the Ty Cobb brand back? !?!?!









P.S. I am not trying to restart this tired debate.
