My recollection is that there are 22, but I could be wrong. And 12 of them came from just two finds.

I am also aware of 22 different examples, including the one that is in the museum.

Default Other rare Cobb t206 back types

Is anybody familiar with the other Cobb t206 backs that might be in a similar population range or even less?

I get that there are rare-back collectors, but this card is so over-hyped. I can think of several early cobb postcards that are far cooler and more rare. If resale value were not a consideration, there are probably 10 other Cobb cards I prefer to own.

The T206 Cobb red/ Broadleaf 460 has only one known copy. It belongs to Jaime B. There are other rare Cobb/ back combinations... Uzit, Lenox, etc. These cards are nowhere near as valuable as the Cobb back because all these backs exist on many other T206s besides the Cobb, whereas the Cobb back only appears on Cobb reds.

Although they are not perfect, you can get some sense of the relative rarity of different backs by looking at the pop reports from PSA and SGC. PSA's T206 list is here:

But aren't there different numbers of backs depending on the player? That was explained to me by another person on this forum.

For example, back 1 for player A might be rare, but back 1 for player B might be more common. ANd it affects the price, from what I am told.

Is there a place where those types of rarities are defined, and perhaps have a "book" value or estimate?

trying to simplify a Cobb/Cobb and it's popularity by only calling it a 'rare back' is like call a 52T mantle just another high number.

Default rare cobb backs

The cobb/cobb back is truly one of the hobby's great cards. I'd say top 5 all-time personally. I just find it surprising that some of the other Cobb rare backs don't command more - especially the ones with lower pops than the cobb/cobb back.
