This was originally Elwood Scharf’s. Elwood collected many things, in baseball and out, but Exhibit cards were his passion. He collected Exhibit cards from the machines in Chicago and acquired all the issues in the 1947-1966 set as they came out, including all the reissues and every variation he noticed. The set issued here, I believe is almost as complete as possible with many shade and other unlisted variations. A few of the cards have pencil notations which are in Elwood’s handwriting.
