A continuation of the 1922 Exhibits issue, the 1923-24 set featured 58 cards not issued in 1922, though with a similar design to that year's cards.  The 1923-24 issue is popular among collectors today because 38 of the subjects appear on an Exhibit card for the first time in this issue, and also due to the extreme rarity of the issue's key card, that of Babe Ruth.  Only a small number of Ruth cards are known to exist, making it one of his rarest cards (an example is featured elsewhere in this auction).  

Presented is a near-set of 53 cards from the issue, entirely graded by SGC.  While the technical grade of the cards is low, the majority are clean and presentable, with extra attention paid to image quality by the collector who consigned this group.  A breakdown of the cards included are as follows:

SGC EX 60 (7 cards): Groh, Harris, Holke, Kaufmann, Rommel, Ruel, Sand; SGC VG/EX+ 55 (3 cards): Burns, Jamieson, Pillette; SGC VG/EX 50 (4 cards): Grimm, High, Matthews, Pipp; SGC VG+ 45 (1 card): Rigney; SGC VG 40 (15 cards): Barnhart, Blades,  Clark, Doak, Ehmke, Gowdy, Heathcote, O'Neill, Piercy, Powell, Pratt, Severeid, Sewell, Smith,  Veach; SGC GOOD+ 35 (1 card): Dugan; SGC GOOD 30 (9 cards): Freigan, Galloway, Harper, Lee, Liebold, McGraw, Padgett, Picinich, Wrightstone; SGC FAIR 20 (9 cards): Flagstead, Fournier, Genewich, Gonzalez (Stamped Back), Kamm, Mostil, Smith, Stevenson, Woodall; SGC POOR 10 (4 cards): McInnis, Morrison, Powell, Tierney.  An attractive collection of cards from an early Exhibit issue, missing just five cards for completion.  53 cards total.
