Written by T206museum (November, 2002)

Brown Hindu
Red Hindu (RARE)

Hindu -- Hindu brand backs have two different colors, brown and red. These two colors are very easy to distinguish and fully recognised by all collectors. The brown Hindus first appeared with the 150 Series cards and red Hindus showed up later in the T206 process. Red backs are much rarer than brown Hindus and will only be found on cards that are not known with brown Hindu back.

  • The scarcity order of Brown Hindus are between Carolina Brights and American Beauty Series 460.
