1948 W464 Baseball's Great Hall of Fame Exhibits Complete Set (33)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $720

Complete 33-card set of 1948 Hall of Fame Exhibits. These unnumbered black-and-white (in some cases green-tint) Exhibit cards feature all-time great Hall of Famers, and no doubt instilled a great appreciation of baseball history in youngsters of the day. The 1948 Hall of Fame Exhibit cards were issued on cardboard stock and each card has the player's brief biography printed along the bottom. From a very old-time collection, this set has been stored away for decades and grades Ex overall, with eight Vg-Ex and seven lesser, including Gehrig and both Ruths, due to light creasing or writing on the reverse. The set is naturally highlighted by many of the great legends of the game, including Ty Cobb, Lou Gehrig, Rogers Hornsby, Walter Johnson, Christy Mathewson, Babe Ruth (two different poses), Tris Speaker, Honus Wagner, and Cy Young. This set was reproduced in 1977 and the reproductions (which are printed in various colors) sometimes cause confusion. This is a very attractive complete original 1948 set of this classic and often overlooked Exhibit Supply Company issue. Total: 33 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $720
