Default Identification help needed

Hi-
I recently acquired the 4 cards scanned below and I was wondering if anyone might be able to help identify these for me. I would be interested in knowing the year and the names of these sets, as well as any additional information you can provide.

The first scan is a Bob Gibson blank backed picture with a facsimile autograph. There is a logo in the bottom right corner that appears to say LPIU.

The second scan has two blank backed cards, one of Don Drysdale and the other of Gene Autry.

The third and fourth scans show a "squeaker" type postcard (it squeaks when you press the front and back together). Who is the player? He looks very familiar to me but I cannot place him. Were other "squeaker" type postcards made of baseball players?

Thanks in advance,
Alan Elefson

1968-70 Cardinals Team Issue Gibson. I imagine the Autry and Drysdale are also team issued cards.

The Drysdale and Autry cards are early 1970's -- If I had to guess, 1972 but not positive

The LPIU ( found on the Gibson ) stands for Lithiographers and Photoengravers International Union. The blank back should be late 60's.

Agree that the fourth card looks like Tony Taylor. The general appearance of the uni suggests the '70's, when Tony was the Phils' batting coach, and wore uni number 12.

Thank you everyone! After reading everyone's information, I found the Gibson in the Krause book quickly, and soon after found the Angels team issued cards. I also really appreciate the help with the player on the squeaker postcard. Has anyone seen any other baseball squeakers?
Thanks again,
Alan
