Exhibit Supply Company Baseball Card Dating Chart
    Exhibit baseball cards are difficult to date because the only way to distinguish between years is by very subtle differences. Most Exhibit cards are blank backed with very little identifying text on the front. Differences in the placement of text, font style, and wording such as "Made in U.S.A." or "Printed in U.S.A." will help to narrow it down to the year in which they first appeared.
