PSA encourages the destruction (yeah, an over exaggeration) of match books by having all the matches removed so they can be slabbed.
Agree - I think PSA should have just slabbed the full book. I confirmed that Beckett will slab with matches and I plan on doing that with my pc items. My best condition books are still full/intact. Maybe Beckett will do the research and mark at least the 5 main variations on the flip...then PSA will eventually catch up since they will be cataloged lol

The Sports Pix Magazine premium photo;
There are two sizes of these. What is the maximum size PSA will slab? One is 8x10 which I gather they would slab. The other is listed as 8-1/2x10-1/2, but the one I have is 8x10-1/2 with no sign of trimming, which I assume would be too large?
JUMBO can slab anything up to 8.5x11 so both are fair game imo.

Lastly, "68 picture pack photo". What is this and who issued it? I hadn't heard of this photo pack before.
see link - i'm guessing he meant these?

In general i don't think they recognize color variations for some reason...
Light brown/brown and Yellow/brown Yoo-Hoo...the card stock is even different.
But it isn't cataloged

As Keyman points out, those were issued in 1966. They were given out during a home game. They must have also been sold in concession stands. They can be found with either Houk or Keane (I've seen Keane much less often, probably because he was fired early in the year).

By the way, very nice HI matchbook collection! (insert envious emoji here).

Again, nice matchbook collection! I passed on a light brown matchbook a while ago because I didn't know they existed. I thought it must be a faded yellow matchbook. If you ever want to get rid of any, let me know. I might be able to find a good home for them.

Larry, did you keep any pictures of the set that you could post? Besides Mantles, I collect Yankee photo sets/packs etc. I've not heard of that set yet. I've attached a picture of an advertisement in a 1966 Yankee program for the 1966 set.

Some do and some don't, but it's annoying. There have supposedly been studies done to show that it cannot hurt the cards, one guy even put a PSA slab in a paint shaking machine like they have down at Home Depot. Supposedly couldn't tell any difference after shaking the hell out of a card for 10 straight minutes. I don't know...

You would think that with all of the empahsis PSA puts on other things, they could design a consistent holder where this does not happen - at least for run-of-the-mill, standard issue and size baseball cards.
