Your ideal front/rare back combo?

Post by fisherboy7 on Sun Sep 26, 2010 3:07 pm

With all the hype and talk about rare backs over the past few years, I got to thinking about the best possible front/rare back combos out there from all the prewar tobacco/caramel/bakery sets. If you could have any, which would you want?

Personally, I might go for a T216 Virginia Extra Mathewson in decent shape. If that's even possible! If not, I'd be fine with an Uzit Cobb or Lajoie Smile

And you?

The obscure combo+; any w514 or strip card stamped with Chris Nelsons' parlor: Eskimo Pie Parlor, Iowa. I have seen one in my lifetime and may not see another.... Any card stamped by Chris Nelson is gold!

OJ Anson in uniform, with a crystal clear bold image and a nice blank back. :-)

Not a back collector, but if I could pick one it would be a pirate back with anyone on the front - very cool back design along with extreme rarity makes it one i would like to have...

1916 M101-5 Holmes-To-Homes Bread card of Walter Johnson. Why this card, you ask? Because, (1) I collect WAJO cards, (2) WAJO played for Washington his entire career, (3) Holmes Bakery was a Washington, DC, company, and (4) I have lived my entire 66+ years in the No. Va. suburbs of Washington, DC.
