1923-24 Exhibit Set Overview

Seven different pre-war sets make up the W461 Exhibits issue. In addition to the pre-war era W461s, additional sets from the late 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s were also printed as well.

These are sometimes called postcards, although that isn’t really accurate since they were blank-backed. There are other Exhibits that were also postcards but these have blank backs.

These are classified in the American Card Catalog as W-Cards, but they are not strip cards like other W-card issues.

The 1923-24 Exhibit card set features black and white player images. The player names on the cards have a cursive style of font and their team name in an italicized block style of font. In addition to the player’s team, his league and position are also included. The font color for the cards varies — it is black if the image behind it is a lighter shade or it is white for darker backgrounds.

While most of the cards are borderless, some include white borders. Cards do not include card numbers. Almost all of the cards have a vertical layout.

Babe Ruth leads the way and his card in this set is one of the most sought after Exhibits ever printed.
