I don't know anything about the brown lettering version. Does this only appear on the Old Mill backs? Are there only a few players which have this coloring? How rare are these cards?

Aren't real brown Old Mills considered scraps and not actually inserted with the tobacco for distribution?

The brown lettering appears on Old Mill Southern League cards only. There are less than 20 players who feature this back. They are the most rare, and second most valuable back in the T206 set. They sell in the $15,000 range.

There are also Brown lettered Lenox cards, which are almost as rare and valuable, but that's a story for another thread.

Yes, they are all scraps. Apparently they were printed in error and discarded, but were taken home by a printer. They were cut by hand from that sheet, and eventually made their way into circulation.

Sean, if you got a Brown OM for $15k, I am a buyer all day long!! Last few I know of went for $18k-$20k+ and the $18k was private and a fairly motivated seller.

Sorry, I don't have, and probably will never get a Brown Old Mill.
