Posted By: <b>nbrazil</b><p>Anyone know anything about this issue? I saw an auction for it awhile ago<br /><br /><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/1964-Dodgers-Heads-Up-Sandy-Koufax-Jewish-NM-or-Better_W0QQitemZ120169982288QQihZ002QQcategoryZ604 92QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://cgi.ebay.com/1964-Dodgers-Heads-Up-Sandy-Koufax-Jewish-NM-or-Better_W0QQitemZ120169982288QQihZ002QQcategoryZ604 92QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem</a><br /><br />I was going to bid, but decided not to because tumbleweeds fell out of my wallet when i opened it.<br /><br />But, I am curious as to what company made these cards and how they were distributed. How scarce are they?<br /><br />I found a checklist online, but not much else.<br /><br />Bob...I know you've got some info on this.<br /><br />thanks in advance<br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Bob</b><p>From the 2007 Standard Catalog: [everyone should own a copy, 2008 available now]<br /><br />1963 L.A. Dodgers Pin-Ups<br /><br />Borrowing on the concept of the 1938 Goudey Heads-Up cards, this set was sold, probably at the stadium souvenir stands, in a white envelope labeled "Los Angeles Dodgers Pin-Ups." The cards feature large full-color head-and-cap photos set atop cartoon ballplayers' bodies. Cards are printed on 7-1/4" x 8-1/2" semi-gloss cardboard with blank backs. The player's name appears in black on the front, along with the instructions, "Push out character carefully. Take scissors and trim white around player's head." Each figure was die-cut to allow its easy removal from the background.<br /><br />Complete Set (10): NM $75.00<br />Koufax NM $25.00<br /><br />I bought my set for $105 off eBay and it came with the envelope. SCD calls this a '63 set, but it's much more likely that it's from '64 since Joe Moeller wasn't on the Dodgers in '63. It's not a difficult set to find in EX/MT+ condition. PSA hasn't graded any "card" from this set. I'm sure if someone could get a Koufax graded, it would go for quite a bit.
