    1948 W469 Exhibits "Sports Champions" Complete Set (32) Plus Dempsey Color Variant. Offered very rarely as a complete 32-card set are the "Sports Champions" Exhibit cards from 1948. This theme was a two-year run with a far more challenging 1949 complete set being offered elsewhere in this auction. Despite SGC's ambiguous labeling these ARE the 1948 black and white cards plus a scarcer green tint of Dempsey. Includes: Graded - SGC 84 NM 7: 4 cards, Cobb, Henie, Man O' War and McDermott; SGC 82 EX/MT+ 6.5: 1 card, Button/Dark Jacket; SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 4 cards, Bentley/Doug & Max, Cook, Jacobs and Luckman; SGC 60 EX 5: 2 cards, Joe Louis and Turner; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 2 cards, Dempsey/B&W and Durnan; SGC 40 VG 3: 2 cards, Dempsey/Green and Mikan. Ungraded - Baugh (PR), Graham (VG/EX), Hoppe (VG), Lujack (VG/EX), and Van Buren (VG/EX). Grades 4% NM, 34% EX to EX/MT, 62% VG to VG/EX with a few lesser.
