1921 Exhibits baseball cards There are 64 cards in this set, each measuring 3-3/8 x 5-3/8 inches. Unnumbered and blank-backed.

Card fronts show a black-and-white photo of the player, with his name in cursive superimposed, as well as his position, team name, and league in smaller lettering. A thick white border surrounds the photo.

Exhibit cards were once a popular collectible across the nation, available in vending machines for a penny. The subjects covered ranged from pretty girls to cowboy film heroes to star athletes. The Exhibit Supply Co. - who also produced this set - were the major player cranking out these cheap but popular novelties.

This set brings together 4 players from each of the 16 professional teams.

It's often difficult to differentiate between years of release on exhibit cards due to a lack of copyright date or other indicia; on these, at least on the cards showing American League players, the league designation is given as 'AM.L.'; future releases would shorten this to 'A.L.', which is an imperfect method, but pretty much the best one can hope for.
