Listing Details


THERE IS JUST ONE MISSING CARD (1954 Giants) and many lesser variations, some unlisted, including on Mays and Musial. There is a Gene Bearden variation with and without a slight glove by the upper right corner and other subtle variations. There are 353 total cards in the lot.

The ultimate Exhibit card set, the seemingly endless number of variations, short-prints and team cards make this so hard to complete. Full sets are naturally revered when they come to market, which is not very often. The offered set is an impressive accomplishment from a hobby old timer. Condition varies, about 25% Ex-Mt, 50% Ex or so, the balance mainly VG to VG-Ex. The backs tend to be clean, these are nice looking cards. An almost monumental value, this lot contains four different Mickey Mantles including the vital portrait variation, two Mays's and an endless stream of HOFers over a 20-year period. The scarce team cards provide a good portion of the value here, and these are complete save for 1953.

The many key cards grade as follows: 55 Colavito Portrait VG+ mk back, 65 Cunningham Portrait Ex-Mt+, 91 Ford Portrait Ex++, 148 Kranepool Ex-Mt+, 172 Mantle Pinstriped Ex++, 173 Mantle Batting No Pinstripe 1st Name Not White Ex++, 173 Mantle Batting No Pinstripe 1st Name White VG-Ex, 174 Mantle Portrait Ex, 186 McCoskey Ex+, 196 Musial Batting Ex, 204 SPaige VG-Ex/Ex, 215 Powell Ex-Mt, 219 Richardson Ex-Mt, 247 Moose Skowron Ex++, 277 Ward Ex-Mt, 287 Yaz Ex-Mt+, 290 Braves Team 1948 Ex, 291 Dodgers Team 1949 VG-Ex *wb, 292 Dodgers Team 1952 Ex-Mt+, 293 Dodgers Team 1955 VG-Ex/Ex, 294 Dodgers Team 1956 VG *ph, 295 Giants 1951 PSA 5, 296 Giants 1954 VG, 297 Indians 1948 VG+, 298 Indians 1954 VG+, 299 Phillies 1950 VG-Ex *wb, 300 Yankees 1949 Ex+, 301 Yankees 1950 VG-Ex *wb, 302 Yankees 1951 VG-Ex, 303 Yankees 1952 VG-Ex, 304 Yankees 1955 VG+ *wb and 305 Yankees 1956 VG-Ex.

An incredible value, a dealer can have a literal field day piecing these out as singles, the time and effort to assemble this set is truly huge.
