    need some help with these exhibit cards please

    I have no idea how to tell if these are real I think someone said the darker gray backs are the real ones & the white backs are reprints. these ones all have the darker gray backs & they all look the same color.
    [MENTION=2442]mchenrycards[/MENTION] can you confirm ???





    any help would be much appreciated, as I don't want to sell as authentic unless I know for sure, or else ill list as reprints.

    From the scans those look like the real deal to me. Reprints are usually a very bright white or sometimes a dull white. These look good (as far as I can tell from the scans).

    There were also some 1947-1966 Exhibits that were reprinted with gray backs.
    Your best bet is to compare your cards' stock with a known authentic card.
    Here's a Net54 thread that mentions the gray stock reprints:

    looks like mine would fall under this category, so good chance they are real if the reprints are more rare than the real ones?????

    2. Several of the 1947-66 Exhibits were reprinted on coarse grey stock some years ago. These cards are easily distinguished in person, not so much on line unless you have a back scan where you can see the grey chip board. Oddly, the reprints are much rarer than the real thing. These include Mantle, Reese and Mays, and some others I don't remember. I was burned on a few early in my career: haven't seen any in quite a while. Again, if you know Exhibits and are buying in person, you will immediately be able to tell that these are fakes.
