There are six different mail-in offers on the card backs. The offers are numbered 601 through 606 and the numbering coincides with the numeric grouping of cards. Cards 1 through 6 have offer 601 through 606, and then the pattern starts over with cards 7 through 12 having offers 601 through 606. This is repeated six times for a total of 36 cards.

Thanks to collector Mark Hellman for providing the information about the different back variations and the mail-in offers and for providing the pictures of those.
