Today's set is one of my favorite from the 1960's. the Dexter Press set. These were made by Dexter Press for Coca-Cola, who gave them out as a premium. Sets were made for eighteen of the 20 MLB teams. The cards are large, coming in at 5½" x 7". The fronts are pretty plain, with just a picture, white border, and facsimile autograph. The backs have a small writeup on the player.
Team sets consist of twelve cards.
One interesting not about the pictures... it looks like the photographer had a mark on the ground and had the players stand on the mark. The backgrounds in almost every picture is nearly identical.
