1980 Exhibit Supply Cards

Here are eight cards from the 1980 Exhibit Supply Co. set.  The 32 card set was based on earlier issues and was printed in three tints-- red, blue and sepia.  The unnumbered blank backed cards are 3-3/8" x 5-3/8".  Reportedly there were only 2,500 of each color made.  I picked these up on COMC for a grand total of $1.97.

Lou Brock
Not a great shot of Lou.
Billy Williams
Billy just has one of those likable faces, doesn't he?
Brooks Robinson
Check the bird peering out from the lower right.
Ernie Banks
A young "Ernest" at Wrigley,  likely in 1957
Willie Mays
Classic Willie from the Bronx
Lou Gehrig
Nice shot of the Iron Man (god knows where)
Richie Ashburn
This is a shot of Richie in his first or second year.  Very nice signature.
Warren Spahn
This picture was taken in the early 1970's when Spahn was the pitching coach for the Cleveland Indians.
