Only time will tell but I think there will definitely be more,
never before E92 front/back combos, as the hobby continues to mature. They are fun to collect, no doubt. I wouldn't doubt I pick up a few in the future, for old times sake...

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.

Reviving this thread to inquire of the group whether anyone is aware of another E92 Blue Crofts Candy Cobb. I just acquired this one (thanks a ton Ed!) and neither of us is aware of another (which likely means there a dozen out there...)

Ryan, I know there are 3 or 4 of each of the black and blue Crofts Candy Cobbs. I remember at the AC National I thought about splurging on the one you got, but ultimately decided not to as I knew it wasn't unique. Let me check later tonight and I'll see if I can get you a few links to some of the others. There is also posts on the board from a few years ago where someone claims a red croft was sold back in the 80's, but I've never found a listing, image, or any other confirmable proof so I remain skeptical that it exists.

Yes, of course, Candy. I am going to edit thread to correct -- I was so excited to get it I cant tell a candy from a cocoa.

I know there are several Candy blacks out there, but has anyone ever seen another Blue (or Red for that matter)?

DJ -- that would be awesome and most helpful. Thank you. I assume there must be others, but I cannot find any and Ed was aware of no others. I am still happy to own this -- unique or not, its rare as heck - but would still love to know how many others we know are out there

Here is a list of all the black and blue Cobbs I could account for tonight based on the PSA and SGC pop reports. Lots still missing. From this thread, John Spencer indicated he previously had a blue Cobb, but thought it was a PSA 4. Based on the pop reports, and the only sale of the PSA 4 I have, that can't be accurate.

I also don't have VCP so not sure if any others show up there. Hopefully some other members (petecld?) can fill in some of these gaps. I also wouldn't be surprised if a few of these were crossed over at different times.

Thanks DJ. Attached is what VCP shows - the SGC A is the blue one and the SGC 50, which is real pretty, is a black back. I came up with less than what you did- I know Brockelman sold a black-back 1 in 2013; this is the same one that Tony Arnold has on eBay.

The PSA pop report shows 8 graded E92 Crofts Candy Cobbs. SGC show ten graded (incidentally, The Cocoa back seems to be at least 2-3 times more scarce). The problem is that neither pop report distinguishes between colors, so we don’t know how many are black vs blue (or red?).

An extensive google search did not turn up pictures or mention of any other Crofts blue back, which continues to beg the question of whether this is the only “known” one? If anyone has Cobb Croft’s Candy backs, please post, especially if blue or red.
