1960 Leaf Baseball Cards

Leaf Luis Aparicio
Set Description

The cards, which measured the standard 2 ½ x 3 ½” size, had a glossy photo of the player on the front, photographed against a vignette. The player’s name appeared in boldfaced type below, along with his position and team. The obverse of each card featured a small baseball with “Genuine Baseball Photo” and the card number on its face. Each player’s full name was listed again with position and team, followed by his vital statistics, a brief biography, and the player’s lifetime and past year stats. Unlike other baseball cards from this era, these cards were distributed with a marble and not chewing gum.
