Presented is a 1959 Bazooka Baseball complete permanently-laminated set of twenty-three cards. The first installment of a series that spanned until 1971, these oversized beauties are noted for their outstanding player selection and intense captions. This attractive gallery was meticulously pared and framed on heavy wood to dimensions of 27x21 by noted Philadelphia-area collector and framer, Ernie Montello, in the early 1980s. These original cards have retained a vibrant appearance and present much nicer than many ill-fated copies that fell into the hands of over-zealous youth. Keys to this set are Aaron, Banks, Mantle, Mays and Snider, along with more common shortprints.
