There is no argument that the Red portrait Cobb was American Lithographic's "signature picture" for its white
bordered T-card sets. This picture of Cobb appears on at least 30 white bordered cards with various Tobacco
advertising backs. But, there appears to be some argument regarding the relative scarcity of its 11 toughest
T206 backs. So, let's run a survey and see what results.









I will start this survey with 2 of my 4 red Cobb cards.

0....BROAD LEAF 460
0....DRUM
0....HINDU (red)
0....LENOX (black)
0....UZIT
1....SOVEREIGN 460
1....PIEDMONT 460 Factory 42
0....CAROLINA BRIGHTS
0....AMERICAN BEAUTY 350
0....CYCLE 460
0....EPDG



OK, guys and gals.....how about running up the numbers.....show and/or tell us about your red Cobb(s) ?

Remember, this survey is not limited to just these 11 backs....any Red Cobb is welcome to this study.


Thanks for your time an effort responding to this survey.

You have a T206 Cobb (bat off shoulder) with a rare back that NONE of the Red Cobb collector's have (and will never have).

An AMERICAN BEAUTY 460 back....and, I know you are very proud of this card

I have a Sweet Cap 350, Factory 30. Not rare.

Nobody asked but my green portrait is an Old Mill Factory 25. Also not rare.

But they are two of my favorites and, although I've sold almost all of my T206s, I can't seem to part with these.

Thanks for all your inputs, guys. Also, I have received 6 emailed inputs from Net54 readers.
I'll tally up the data and post an updated list later tonite.

For you guys who have posted your Cobb's with backs other than these 10 scarcest ones,
I appreciate your inputs and near the end of this survey these backs will also be tallied.

We are on a roll here, keep the inputs rolling in. We can't have enough Red Cobb's....can we ?

Ted, since you are doing an overall tally as well my Red Cobb is a Piedmont 350, as I suspect many others are as well.
