1928 Pacific Coast League Exhibit Overview

28PCL Fenton.jpg

The 1928 Pacific Coast League Exhibits included players from that league. These are distinctive from most other Exhibits since the pictures on the front have a blue colored tint. The cards are classified as W465 by author Jefferson Burdick in the American Card Catalog.

Fronts include a player image and his name/team. While some Exhibit cards had coupon backs or backs with a postcard design, these cards feature blank backs.

Despite being a minor league issue, there are some recognizable names in the set. Many of the players reached the major leagues but the most valuable card in the set is that of Hall of Famer Earl Averill.

Finally, while there are only 32 cards in the set, there are also several spelling errors in the names, which was the case in practically every Exhibit card release.

Note that this is the only pre-war minor league set that was created. Another minor league Exhibit card release did not surface until 1953 when one was created for the Montreal Royals.
