I have heard of this set, know that they command a strong price, but I have never personally seen any. Does anyone have any scans they could share, or provide me with any further insight into this mysterious set?

Back in 1980, I had an example of each Dodgers year, a Rams and a Laker card as well. I put the cards in those lucite snap holders from way back.
To mu horror, in 1985 or so, I went to remove a Drysdale card and realized every card was stuck permanently to the holder! I ruined the Drysdale, but sold the others "as is" for short money back then!
Wish I still had the Laker card, never saw another!

Here is an example of a 1961 Laker Bell Brand basketball card (brown version). This is the only one I own.


Best regards, Pat

Thanks for the pic--at least I know what to look for, should I ever be lucky enough to stumble into one of these.
