Complete 32-card set of black back 1962 Statistic Back Exhibits. These unnumbered black-and-white cards were issued on thick cardboard and have the player's statistics printed in black on the reverse. These cards are extremely bright, fresh, and attractive. The set is highlighted by many of the great stars of the era including Hank Aaron, Roberto Clemente, Sandy Koufax, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, and Stan Musial. Condition is four Ex-Mt (including one better), nine Ex, thirteen Vg-Ex, and six lesser (mostly Vg). Three cards are graded by PSA. Keys: Aaron (EX 5), Berra (Ex), Cash (NM+ 7.5), Clemente (Vg-Ex), Koufax (EX 5), Mantle (Vg-Ex+), Maris (Vg-Ex+), Mays (Vg-Ex), and Musial (Ex). The Statistic Back Exhibit card sets (they were issued in 1963 also) are among the most interesting and overlooked sets of the early 1960s, an era in which competition in the card manufacturing world spurred innovation among all card companies, prompting the Exhibit Supply Company to add statistic backs. Total: 32 cards.

Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
