But would they be as popular? Probably not. A lot of collectors like myself appreciate both the front and back of cards. Blank back cards have little interest to me. I won't ever buy a blank back t206.

Agreed. I am not a back collector, yet I am not a fan of blank-backs.

I like both fronts and backs, but I don't mind blank backs if the fronts are interesting enough. I love Old Judges, which have blank backs. On the other hand, most blank-backed strip cards don't do much for me, because the fronts are so bad.

I collect the different T206 (and T205) backs, because they tell the history of the sets, as well as show how the cards were issued. I have the 520 card short-set of T206, and just picked up my 100th T205, and collecting the backs just seems to be a logical extension of the sets. I want at least one of each different back, but I don't really care about specific front/back combos.

So far, I have all the T206 backs except Broadleaf, Carolina Brights, Drum, Lenox and Uzit, and the T205 backs except Broadleaf and Drum. I'm also looking for Coupon (series 1), Red Cross (series 1) and Victory backs (and if I'm really lucky, a Pirate back).

A little rabbit trail, but in regards to back runs, what players (with the particular pose) has the most "backs?"

The six super print cards each appear with 24 different backs. Chase blue portrait, Chase black cap, Chance yellow background, Cobb red background, Evers batting Chicago and Mathewson black cap.

The Cobb red also appears on the Cobb/ Cobb back, so it appears on the most different backs.

Only if you consider it a t206. That is another can of worms.

What about beyond T206? Where the player from that set also has the same pose on same pose say on the Red Cross back, or on an E95?

Why?

Because T206 Sweet Caporal backs from any series are just soooo common!

All joking aside, I collect different backs for my T206 set because it adds variety. I'm not what you would call the average T206 collector though because from day one I never had any desire to own an example of each back.

Do I chase backs? Yes and I care just as much about the backs as I do the fronts. In order to complete a back set (every card/same back), a collector has to chase the player on the front and the advertisement on the back equally.
