I think the '62 Kahn's is one of the more interesting RC items out there in terms of the atypical stance/pose capture...the Kahn's in general are a pretty cool series for him.

The Kahn's are one of my favorite "sub sets" and one of the most difficult to complete - add any kind of reasonable condition and it gets exponentially harder. The only subset I like more are complete bazooka boxes - still looking for the 1960 box - my life regarding Clemente would feel complete if I were to acquire it and also looking for some size variants from other years.

Kahn's Clemente checklist - 1957,1958,1959,1960,1961,1962,1963,1964,1966

Bazooka box Clemente checklist:
1960,1962,1963,1964,1965,1966,1967,1968,1971 - I have confirmed production of 20 piece and 25 piece boxes for all years except - 1964 (I have not seen/confirmed a 25 piece Clemente box, but have seen another player), 1968 and 1971 (believe these only came in 25 piece size).

Agreed that the Kahn's are a great Clemente series. Unfortunately I'm still missing a lot of them. Have lost out on a few recently at auction. For some reason I'd really like to pick up the 1966 issue, but rarely see it offered. I passed on one years back because the tab had been cut off, and looking back I probably should have just purchased it and tried to upgrade later.

Day 23

1963 Kahn's Wiener card...

No Question 66 is a tough one! I bought a whole set to get mine probably about 25 years ago. Used to see them once in a while, not so much anymore. My opinion of difficulty of Clemente Kahn's (condition not a consideration) from easiest to hardest along with PSA pop report stats:

1964 (84 PSA graded)
1963 (57 PSA graded)
1962 (58 PSA graded)
1961 (41 PSA graded)
1960 (40 PSA graded)
1957 (32 PSA graded)
1959 (23 PSA graded)
1966 (21 with Tab + 3 no tab PSA graded)
1958 (7 PSA graded)

Interesting to note I used to see almost no 1959's years ago and thought it to be almost as tough as the 58's. In the past 5-7 years a number of them seem to have surfaced. Also interesting that the 1957 is not as hard as one would think.

Default 66

My 66 Kahn's no tab
I would trade for a nice 59 - I also need a 58 (probably never get one) and a 61.

Default A couple of images

First is the elusive 1966 Kahn's with tab we've been speaking about. Next is a box with a few neat items:

1969 Mlb pin previously posted by Mike
A relatively common "hall of fame" pin
Another not too hard pin (photo with arms crossed)
A MUCH tougher pin - portrait

1967 and 1968 Soda bottle caps - yes, all the soda varieties are Clemente and include - Coke, Sprite, King Size coke, Tab, 2 different Fresca's, Fanta Orange, Fanta Grape, and Fanta Root Beer. There are quite a few other flavor variants, but none that I have seen with Clemente. I got as crazy as beginning to look for the standard (common) Coke caps from different bottling plants - stopped that in a hurry.

At the top of the box are a 1960 World Series pen/pencil set and a 1971 world series pencil (missing the pen .

Howard,

Great items again! That 66 Kahn's is perfect. Great run on the bottle caps too, I only have one (Coke) and really wasn't going to pick up other brands, but maybe I'll pick up a few different now.

Day 24

1964 Kahn's Wiener card...

Thanks for the Kahn's stats. The list conveniently suggests why I have '61-'64, but no others...
