A couple of years ago, I decided to work on a back run of this Jennings pose. Has anyone ever seen a Croft's Candy red back of this pose?

Dave very nice! Out of curiosity, do you also have the menagerie back? If you ever have a desire to sell the red back, please let me know

Val, from the list of e92 difficult backs thread, Jennings was not reported with the red croft, menagerie, prize fighter, or blank backs.

Thanks DJ for reminding me of this informative thread you started a couple of years ago. I'm happy to assume that a Croft's Candy red back of Jennings doesn't exist!

Default menagerie

DJ, unfortunately I do not have the menagerie back - these are the only 3 I have. Thought about trying to get other backs but I either didn't have the funds or it was out-prioritized at the time . It's even worse today with multiple auctions every month...just can't decide which cards to focus on.

Never seen a red backed Jennings...I would guess, and it's only a guess, all of the players should have a red back too. I think more will be found in the future as many old timers only collected fronts and as their collections come to market.

btw Pete, nice run.

Leon, I think you are right that more of the red backs will eventually come out. Based on some really old posts on this board, it seems like there were only about 3 examples known in the hobby about 10 years ago (prior to your hoard). Now there are at least 15 examples that have been confirmed. However, I'm hesitant to say all of the possible cards will exist with the red back. I find it very odd that of those confirmed so far, about half the players have more than 1 example confirmed. In addition, from my experience, it seems even among the blue and black backs there are certain player/back combinations that are harder to find and certain combinations that may not exist. While I think more could be crossed off, from the link I provided above, we still have 11 blue backs that have not been confirmed. That is over 20% of the generally accepted set.
