Default Brushing off the Dust on this one!

I am bringing forward a very old thread as my father and I have been trying to “clarify” all the data regarding the MLB photostamps that were released in 1969 and 1970. Much of this work and our inspiration came from Net54 member Karl Mattson, but to our knowledge is more accurate than any other data on this topic that we have found. I have broken this into two reports, the “1969” (or so-called 1969) and the “1970” just to try to remain readable.

1969 MLB PhotoStamps -- (408 possible):
Variety/Type 1 with backs a&b = 216
Variety/Type 2 = 192

1969 Variety 1 (aka. Type 1) with backs a&b – (just for the sake of clarity, I have given an “a” and “b” designation to the differing back variations). This set of 216 hand-cut stamps with dotted line backs (the 1-7/8”x~3” (height was >15/16” & >3”) to the “cut lines) were on 18 sheets -- AL. 1-9 and NL 1-9 printed on off-white stock, with some having "Official Album" verbiage (the “b” back) on backs but no players exist with both "Official Album" AND Regular Backs. These are listed in the Sports Collectors Digest Standard Catalog (SCD) by sheet and in the Beckett Almanac (Beckett’s) listing has the 216 players listed alphabetically in groups of 9 players undivided by team name (team designation is cited in the general verbiage).
