An astonishing accumulation of (36) different T206 backs, the largest assemblement ever offered in the hobby. Comprising of 90% of all known backs, this array is a spectacular feat to accomplish in any condition. Ranging from the markedly rare to relatively common, this world-class back grouping incorporates it all. Respectably graded by Sportscard Guaranty LLC. (SGC), these pieces are encapsulated with the reverses showing, as this is being sold as a “backs” lot.

The veracity of this group cannot be underestimated. The immense scarcity of these backs coupled with T206’s legendary status establishes the prominence of this grouping. Only four of the known backs (Old Mill-Southern League Double Overprint, Old Mill-Southern League Overprint, Ty Cobb and Old Mill Brown) are missing from this collection, all of which are nearly impossible to find in any condition. Alexander K. Spellman, a lawyer in the Los Angeles area and 10-year collector of T206 and T206 backs, offers this pioneering effort.
