a moby or other stretchy wrap is not good for back carries, IMO.
you should be able to find a nice gently used mei tai or soft structured carrier for that price. i bet you could find a classic ergo or a patapum for $50 easily. you could post an ISO here and on thebabywearer.com and check out the TP here and there as well.
also, if you really don't want to spend a lot of money, you could buy 5 or 6 yards of cotton gauze fabric (it's usually quite inexpensive) and use that as a wrap for back carries. nice and lightweight, way more versatile than a moby and probably a good bit cheaper.
and actually, even if you don't want to make your own, you can probably find a used gypsymama gauze wrap for under $50 (i bought one a while back for $45, i believe it was 4.6m). so if you're thinking wrap, that is a better option than the moby.
