Presented is a complete set of 1947-1966 Exhibit baseball cards including most of the catalogued variations. The Exhibit Supply Company produced a number of postcard-sized editions and this made them the most prolific producers of cards second only to Topps. Just as when they were issued, it still takes an exhaustive effort over a period of many years to complete this comprehensive production that presents a wealth of variations and short-printed cards. The cornerstone of any exhibit collection is this massive 336-plus card effort that debuted in 1947, and would have cards added to its lengthy roster until 1966. While not as popular as some of the then contemporary baseball card counterparts, exhibits are much more difficult to obtain in high grade due to their larger dimensions. Among the 362 individual pieces offered here is the complete 336-card set plus two of the five cataloged variations. As is often the case when large quantities of this issue are encountered, a number of uncataloged variations are discovered. There are also 24 undocumented variations in this offering.

A. smaller (EX), Alvis (EX/MT), Ashburn/name incorrect/without  "AN EXHIBIT CARD" (EX/MT), Banks/script signature (EX/MT), Banks/plain signature (EX/MT), Banks/port.
