In recent years, early Exhibit issues have begun to get their due, led by the 1925 rookie card of Lou Gehrig.  Other cards from the 1920s have also begun to skyrocket, as the hobby discovers rookie cards of Hall of Famers like Charles Gehringer, Lefty Grove and Jimmy Foxx come from the 1920s Exhibit card issues.  Such is the case here, a beautiful card of "Double X" from the 1926-29 Postcard Back set.  This example grades GOOD 2, but with tremendous eye appeal.  A few light, stray marks across the card appear to be ink transfer marks which may contribute to the grade.  A small round stain appears to have originated with a small drop of liquid on the front, and some very light paper remnants remain on the reverse, from likely scrapbook removal.  Corner wear is certainly evident, though the overall card appears closer to the VG/EX level.  An exceptional example of Jimmy Foxx' rookie card.
