1959 BB - White Back cards

I tried a search for this topic with no luck so hope I am not beating a dead horse here. 1959 Topps baseball cards 199 through 286 can have either the traditional gray back or a white back. Are the white backed cards more or less common than the gray backed ones? Do these white backed cards carry any premium in terms of value, collector interest, etc.? Thanks in advance for helping me learn more about this series.


Edit: I meant for this to go under the Official 1959 Topps Baseball thread. Can it be moved there?

    I recently upgraded my 1959 set to include both back versions of that series. In doing so there seemed to be a slight premium for the gray backs
    Topps Baseball-1948, 1951 to 2017
    Bowman Baseball -1948-1955
    Fleer Baseball-1923, 1959-2007

    Jim, I agree with Al....the gray backs seen to be a little harder to find and they do carry somewhat of a premium.

    Thanks, fellas, for the replies. It appeared to me the white backs in this card range are more common than the gray - at least for the cards in my collection. Your comments would seem to substantiate that.
