Default Jimmie Foxx Rookie?

Just curious what most of you would consider a Jimmie Foxx rookie card. You've got the 26-29 exhibit, the 1927 W560 playing card, the 1928 R315 and the 1929 Kashin (actual dates could be off a year on the "R"a and then the 1930 tiny Baguer. Obviously 1933 offers a variety of great choices (and 32 US Caramel) but I'm leaning on the exhibit given the great image. Any thoughts - I'm sure I'm missing something huge...

I think most would vote for the 1926-29 Exhibits. A select few might opt for the 1927 W560 simply because they don't like postcard sized cards.

My vote would be for the 1926-29 Exhibits. Pricing has risen considerably over the past 5+ years.

Here is what it shows on the Old Cardboard site in their Hall of Fame rookie card database:

Any idea why they consider the p/c back the rookie vs the blank back?

The backs provide key printing clues. The initial runs of the issue were made with blank backs or backs that had a postcard design with the words “THIS SIDE FOR CORRESPONDENCE” printed on them. Later runs use the phrase “NOT TO BE USED IN EXHIBIT MACHINES”, and still-later print runs add “MADE IN USA” to the card backs. These back characteristics match my experience in collecting the set. In every case where I have run across a card that “should” be an early short-print , the card has been either blank-backed or “correspondence” backed. The backs are critical to analyzing whether a card may be characterized as a rookie. If you find one that is blank-backed it could be a 1925 printing. A 'correspondence' back is probably a 1926 card or perhaps a 1927.
