Brown & Red Hindu back on a same pose

WARNING!!

Not so long ago, there was a controversy on a T206 Christy Mattewson Portrait pose with Red Hindu back. T206 collectors consider Mattewson Portrait pose can only be found with Brown Hindu back since data has proven Brown Hindu and Red Hindu back can not be found with the same pose.

Experienced collectors have suspicion on the authenticity of that Mattewson Portrait Red Hindu back specimen. Such suspicious was understandable, since the same specimen has changed hand at least twice within two months and one seller was even willing to sell the card lower than his purchased price.

Recently, the card owner submitted the card to PSA and received a grade 7. However, many collectors still disagree the decision made by PSA and suggested the card owner to re-submit the card to SGC. At last, the card got slabbed and received a SGC-50 (as shown above).

Such Christy Mattewson Portrait pose with Red Hindu back specimen has proven to be authenticated. It may lead to the possibility of other T206s with Brown Hindu back can also be found with Red Hindu back and vice versa. However, the existence of this unique specimen may only fall into the back printing error category until we could find a few more similar examples. By that time, we may need to re-write the backing theory of the Brown/Red Hindu backs combination.
