These unnumbered black-and-white cards were issued on thick cardboard and have the player's statistics printed in red on the reverse. These cards are extremely bright, fresh, and attractive. From a very old-time collection, this set has been stored away in a closet for decades, possibly since its year of issue. This set is highlighted by many of the great stars of the era including Hank Aaron, Roberto Clemente, Sandy Koufax, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, and Stan Musial. The Statistic Back Exhibit card sets (they were issued in 1962 also) are among the most interesting and overlooked sets of the early 1960s, an era in which competition in the card manufacturing world spurred innovation among all card companies, and no doubt resulted in Exhibit adding statistic backs. This set is also of special note as it was released in the final year The Exhibit Supply Company issued cards. Total: 69 cards (near set of 63 plus six variations). Reserve $200. Estimate $300+.
