Sixties Saturday - 1967 Dexter Press

 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.
