    Exciting Sports:    (about)
    Exciting Sports was the third general sports pulp from the ’Thrilling’ stable, running for 42 issues from 1941 to 1951. For the final 4 issues the title changed to Five Sports Classics. To begin with, Exciting Sports had ’special’ issues which had either all baseball or all American football stories; it wasn’t until later that it became a truly ’general’ pulp with stories from other sports other than these mixed in.
