I have been trying for years to change their minds. Maybe the Exhibit book I hope to publish in 2018 will help.

Technically speaking, PSA's position is nonsensical. Anyone who knows Exhibits knows that the stock is very distinctive and was used across all the card sets, and that the only way to counterfeit a halftone print like an Exhibit card convincingly is to use the original art or the original plates. Anything else made from a card is an obvious re-screen (2nd generation halftone print made from a photo of a halftone print). Takes all of about ten seconds to weed out a counterfeit. That is why the Canadian arcade cards are clearly not ESCO products. They could not have vended through the machines without fouling and are re-screens. They are, however, vintage and quite desirable.

I can also second Jeff's observations re the duration of the FB card run. This is from a 1955 catalog:

And when the book is ready, I shall be a buyer. Exhibits are absolutely fascinating!

I believe there was at least one other company that many an exhibit baseball card set, circa 1920s. I believe it includes Babe Ruth.

There are a number of arcade cards and pseudo-arcade cards. I will cover those too.

At least with cards of movie stars and singers from the 50s and 60s, one often sees what appears to be the same card referred to as both an exhibit and an arcade card. Is there a difference? I usually just adopt the terminology used by the seller in my records, but wouldn't mind being more accurate.

Arcade cards refer generically to cards sold in arcades. Exhibit cards should refer to products of the Exhibit Supply Company, a subset of arcade card. Like tissue and Kleenex or photocopy and Xerox.
