Tremendous collection of 88 cards from the 1926 Exhibits issue, all but one graded by SGC, representing nearly 70% of a complete set.  As with many Exhibit cards remaining from the 1920s, many of these cards exhibit corner and edge wear, and some do have writing on the reverse (which is factored, of course, into their numerical grade).  Despite the condition flaws, the consignor paid careful attention to eye appeal when assembling the set, the result being an attractive group of cards with clear image quality and focus.  A complete breakdown of the collection by grade is as follows:

SGC EX/NM+ 82 (1 card): Critz; SGC EX 60 (12 cards): Bishop, Bluege, Donohue, Dressen, Farrell, Lutzke, Musel (sp), Perkins, RixeyRuffing, Todt, Wingard; SGC VG/EX+ 55 (3 cards):  Furnier, Harris, Wright; SGC VG/EX 50 (9 cards): Burrus, Friberg, Grimm, Huber, Makan, McManus, Ring, Rommel, Sand; SGC VG+ 45 (4 cards): Bassler, Collins, Snyder, Taylor; SGC VG 40 (19 cards): Bell, Bentley, Blankenship, Bressler, Goslin, Grantham, Haney, Hunnefield, Judge, Lindstrom, McQuillan, McWeeny, O'Neil, Ruel, SewellShocker, Speaker, Wingfield, Wingo (mislabeled 1925); SGC GOOD+ 35 (1 card): Dykes; SGC GOOD 30 (15 cards): Bigbee, Butler, P. Collins, Cuyler, Fewster, Frisch, Genewich, Hargrave, Munson, Rigney, Shawkey (mislabeled 1925), Smith, Spurgeon, Taylor, Williams; SGC FAIR 20 (14 cards): Bancroft, Bottomley, Burns, Coveleski, Gerber, Hartnett, Hauser, Herrera, Muesel (sic), Shalk (sic), Sheely, Torporcer, Wheat, Wrightstone; SGC POOR 10 (9 cards): CareyGrimesHornsby, McNeely, Melillo, Mueller, Roush, Sherdell, Warner; PSA PR 1 (MK) (1 card): Henline (mislabeled 1927).  Some of the lesser-conditioned cards do contain writing, which tends to be information about player trades or batting statistics (making the cards infinitely more interesting, in our opinion), with several exhibiting scrapbook damage.  88 cards total.
