Tell me the Red Hindu does not pop! My bad for the poor pic, but here are all your "rare" backs, including brown old mill and brown Lenox (dont have a Ty Cobb back). We have already seen an AB 460 and (a bunch of) EPDG backs, Maybe someone can post pics of the others

What, no Ty Cobb back option?

I'd go with Carolina Brights as well.

I think we're all too biased. Like someone said earlier, Piedmont is a pretty nice looking back, but we've all just seen too many of them. I think if we really wanted to know which back was the most aesthetically pleasing, we would need to ask our spouses, siblings, friends, co-workers, etc and add up all the data. My personal picks are CB, Hindu, Broad Leaf, AB with frame, Cycle, Polar Bear, but I think my preference is influenced by the rarity of the backs.

The Carolina Brights back is too busy for me. Polar Bear is different with the black background, but it's just not very good looking. The Hindu logo always reminds me of Heinz ketchup - so also not a favorite.

Okay, asked my wife, who doesn't know anything about the rarity of these things. She said (unprompted) that the Hindu back looks like the Heinz logo, so she doesn't like it.

Her top three:


Piedmont

Carolina Brights

Tolstoi


Fwiw, I agree with everybody here. My favorites are Polar Bear and Carolina Brights. Sweet Caps are the worst, I'll take the Heinz logo over those ones.

I agree with these specifics on the Carolina Brights. The font is great and helps it stand out, with the wreath a unique and not overpowering element that really separates it.

I don't think the uniqueness of a back is a bias on this one (although I guess many biases are not evident), in a similar way the Uzit is one of my least favorite because it lacks a frame and other design elements that make the others appealing to me.

Wish I could have included each back as it's own poll option (frames, factories and so on), but polls are limited to 10. Sorry!

Maybe take the results of this poll and weed out the backs that don't get votes and make a new thread with 10 stand alone backs? I'm sure some people will hate me for suggesting another t206 thread on the main page
