    1928 Exhibit Boxing Near Set (138/150) - Dated & Undated. At over 150 currently confirmed cards, the 1928 Exhibit issue is by far their biggest single production from the era, although these may actually be overlapping series from the 1928 to 1930 as there are distinct styles of cards representing card images from previous issues and 1928 specific cards are all dated on the post card format reverses. These previously-unseen poses all have a copy legends composed of heavy block letters in all upper case or title case. Key new boxers in the set and included here are Max Schmeling, Jim Braddock, Young Corbett, Maxie Rosenbloom, Jack Sharkey (with multiple cards) and Al Singer. The later part of the print run included cards with blank backs and blue or yellow tinted fronts that have split legends, as well as cards printed on two-sided color stock. The latter two are very tough to find and probably date to 1929-1930. Quite a few of those cards are included in this near set, which includes Dempsey (VG), Schmeling (VG/EX) and Tunney (FR). Grades 46% VG to EX, 54% lesser. See our web site for a checklist of this presentation.
