Of 37 potential T206 back varieties (including the Ty Cobb brand reverse), the Uzit Cigarettes back is the 6th most scarce, behind the impossibly rare Drum, Broadleaf 460, Brown Lenox and Brown Old Mill, along with the aforementioned Cobb.  Uzit backs are exceedingly rare.  In fact, on the PSA and SGC population reports combined, just 167 examples have been graded with the Uzit reverse.  Uzit backs are rare, and in incredibly high demand.

Here is an outstanding example, graded VG 40 by SGC, of George Mullin's T206 card.  Accurately graded due to rounded corners and general wear, the card surface is strong and clean.  However, what's most notable about the card, of course, is its reverse.  The Uzit Cigarettes ad is sharp and vivid, in comparison with many Uzit reverses which are sort of washed-out, this one is printed in a deep blue.  Some slight blue ink staining on the lower-right of the reverse does not interrupt the attractiveness of the back in the least.

Also the highest-graded Uzit Mullin, this is an exceptionally rare card from what is surely the most important and widely-collected prewar tobacco set.
