1928 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 mostly have blank backs. Some cards include a corner coupon printed on the back.

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

The 1928 Exhibit card set features cards with blue tints. The players’ names are in either the lower left or right corner, as is his team. The other corner has the Made in U.S.A. print as well as print that reads Ex. Sup. Co., Chgo. — a clear abbreviation for The Exhibit Supply Company, Chicago.

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

Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig lead the checklist. Ty Cobb, who appeared in other earlier Exhibit sets does not appear here, despite the fact that he did play in 1928 (it was his last major league season).
