1929 Exhibits Star Picture Stamps Collection of (16) with (2) Ruth Sheets
Very rare exhibit set, though the key card with Babe Ruth, may be the most common. The set was issued in 8 postage stamp “denominations” of 1 (3 cards), 2 (3 cards), 3 (2 cards), 5 (2 cards), 10 (2 cards), 15 (2 cards), 25 and 50 (1 each).
The backs all have the identical style of the 1929-30 Baseball 4-in-1's with the standard postcard, but with the Exhibits coupon stamp in one corner. The “50” denomination includes the “big names” Ruth, Tom Mix, Lindbergh, Chaplin, Dempsey, Lloyd, Fairbanks and Jolson and has been graded SGC 40 VG 3. The balance of the set averages excellent and has better names such as Joe Cobb (Our Gang), Wm Hart, Ben Turpin, Oliver Hardy, Tex Maynard, Harry Langdon, Adolf Menjou, Wm Powell, Gary Cooper, Buster Keaton, Eddie Cantor, Lon Chaney, WC Fields, Hoot Gibson, Ken Maynard, Wm Boyd, Buck Jones, Will Rogers, John Barrymore.
