1925 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 1925 Exhibit card set features black and white player images as in past Exhibits sets. But for the first time, player and team names were included inside of a small rectangular box on the front. Additionally, a Made in U.S.A. print is also included in the box.

Cards do not include card numbers. Almost all of the cards have a vertical layout.

The set includes the likes of Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, and many more big names. However, the most iconic card in the set belongs to that of Lou Gehrig. Gehrig’s card in this set, shown here, is a rookie card for the Hall of Famer.

As is the case in other Exhibit sets, this one includes numerous misspellings, including for Hall of Famers Jim Bottomley, George Sisler, and Ray Schalk.
