Hercules had his 12 Labors, Atlas bore the weight of the world and our consignor assembled this 1935 Exhibit "4-on-1" baseball card near-set of (11/16) including (10) single-signed and multi-signed cards. Due props are given to the dauntless collector that undertook the monumental task of tracking down these cards and then chasing after the illustrious subjects to gather their autographs. The better part of a fairly tough series formatted by team, these (11) pre-war Exhibit cards are sturdy examples ranging (VG to EX) in condition. The (10) signed cards total (20) signatures that present handsomely in a potency range of ("8" to "10"). Individual full photo LOA from JSA for each of the (10) signed cards.

Boston Red Sox card signed by (3) with Lefty Grove, Joe Cronin and Rick Ferrell
