1977 Jim Rowe 4-on-1 Exhibits

I remember having a hard time figuring out what hese babies were.  I knew they were exhibits, but they did not show up in my database under that heading.  After searching through various guides, I found out that they are Jim Rowe Exhibits - not your run-of-the-mill variety, apparently.  The one thing that makes these stand out from other such cards is the bright yellow card stock. And I do mean BRIGHT! The scan does not even come close. Whoa.

Each card features four players from a particular team and there were 16 cards in the set.

(1) Boston Braves (Al Lopez, Rabbit Maranville, Warren Spahn, Casey Stengel)
(2) Boston Red Sox (Joe Cronin, Herb Pennock, Babe Ruth, Ted Williams)
(3) Brooklyn Dodgers (Max Carey, Burleigh Grimes, Joe Medwick, Dazzy Vance)
(4) Chicago Cubs (Kiki Cuyler, Gabby Hartnett, Billy Herman, Freddy Lindstrom)
(5) Chicago White Sox (Luke Appling, Red Faber, Ted Lyons, Red Ruffing)
(6) Cincinnati Reds (Chick Hafey, George Kelly, Bill McKechnie, Edd Roush)
(7) Cleveland Indians (Earl Averill, Lou Boudreau, Bob Feller, Bob Lemon)
(8) Detroit Tigers (Ty Cobb, Charlie Gehringer, Goose Goslin, Hank Greenberg)
(9) New York Giants (Dave Bancroft, Carl Hubbell, Mel Ott, Bill Terry)
(10) New York Yankees (Bill Dickey, Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig, Lefty Gomez)
(11) Philadelphia Athletics (Mickey Cochrane, Eddie Collins, Lefty Grove, Al Simmons)
(12) Philadelphia Phillies (Grover Alexander, Jimmie Foxx, Eppa Rixey, Robin Roberts)
(13) Pittsburgh Pirates (Pie Traynor, Honus Wagner, Lloyd Waner, Paul Waner)
(14) St. Louis Browns (Jim Bottomley, Earle Combs, Rogers Hornsby, George Sisler)
(15) St. Louis Cardinals (Dizzy Dean, Frankie Frisch, Jesse Haines, Stan Musial)
(16) Washington Senators (Bucky Harris, Walter Johnson, Heinie Manush, Sam Rice)
