    1927 Exhibit Boxing Near Set (96/99). Offered is a 96-card near set of 1927 Exhibit boxing cards. Currently, the 1927 set has 99 known subjects, so was very likely a three sheet issue with replacements, as was done in the past. The set is mix of reused images from 1925 & 1926 with updated backs and new subjects. The new cards are distinguished by the use of block type in the names. The 1927 set has a rare and unique card (which is included) titled "Record Of Fighters With The Deadly Punch" that contains tables of statistics about the boxers of the era. As such it represents perhaps the first-ever "leaders" card issued by an American card manufacturer for a major sport. Includes: Dempsey (GD), Tunney (VG/EX) and Record of Fighters with the Deadly Punch (PR). Grades 50% VG to EX, 50% lesser. See our web site for a checklist of this presentation.
