Default Cuban Issue Cigarette Pack - Info Wanted

Hello,
I just purchased a Cuban Cigarette Pack with Salvador Hernandez on the front cover. Can anyone give me any info on this pack/issue. Is it uncatalogued, I can't find anything. I've done some google searches but I don't speak Spanish. Any thoughts, info or value estimates are appreciated.

They are 1953-54 Fosforos Los Peloteros matchboxes, obviously from Cuba. Unsure about the pricing though.

Default Chris,

Chris,

Steve is right and here is a link to the cubanball.com site (GREAT SITE!!!) that talks about them...As for value- I got one that was cut (all I got was the two sides front and back) and paid $20 I think...And if I'm not mistaking I saw that at the Nation and the deal wanted somewhere around $35-$40...

Thanks for the info and the link, that is a cool site. I do not understand why a match book would have a tax stamp. Any ideas?

Let me tell you how it will be;
There's one for you, nineteen for me.
'Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

Should five per cent appear too small,
Be thankful I don't take it all.
'Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

If you drive a car - I’ll tax the street;
If you try to sit - I’ll tax your seat;
If you get too cold - I’ll tax the heat;
If you take a walk - I'll tax your feet.

Taxman!

'Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

Don't ask me what I want it for,
If you don't want to pay some more.
'Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

Now my advice for those who die,
Declare the pennies on your eyes.
'Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

And you're working for no one but me.
