1928 Pacific Coast League Exhibits Near-Complete Set (31 of 32)

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $7,050

Collection of thirty-one cards (of the 32 in the set) from the 1928 Pacific Coast League Exhibits set, highlighted by the key card in the set: Hall of Famer Earl Averill. Missing only Twombly for completion. One of the rarest and most highly prized of all Exhibit and PCL card sets, it is not often that we see even a sample card from the 1928 PCL Exhibit set. This regional issue of thirty-two cards features players from the six California teams in the Pacific Coast League. Similar to the 1928 Major League Exhibits, the PCL cards (3-3/8 x 5-3/8 inches) have a blue tint and are blank-backed. Cards are occasionally found with a clipped corner (four cards have clipped corners in this near set), due to a stamped coupon on the reverse of some cards which could be clipped and saved for prizes. The cards range from Pr to Vg (with a few slightly better), averaging Good overall. Even though these cards are technically modest in grade, this is still a very attractive set (minus one card) of these extremely rare and unusual regional PCL Exhibits from the late 1920s. Total: 31 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $7,050
