W461 Exhibit Postcards Overview
Seven different pre-war sets make up the W461 Exhibits postcard issue. In addition to the pre-war era W461s, additional sets from the late 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s were also printed as well.
The designs between the sets are distinctively different, but are also somewhat similar Sets 1-5 all include black and white images with the player’s name somewhere on the postcards. Set 6 and Set 7 are similar in look but have green and blue tints, respectively.
Some of the later post-war W461s include statistics on the back.
In all, counting both the pre-war and post-war issues, there are a little more than 1,000 total postcards in the set.
W461 Exhibit Postcards Checklists
Due to the large number of postcards printed and the fact that they span over many different years, I have not attempted to provide a checklist for these issues.
