The 1964 Peñafiel set, issued in Mexico, contains 207 cards. It is mostly players in the Mexican League, but also has cards of all-time Mexican greats as well as all-time Major League greats that are cartoon-like drawings instead of photographs. It also has cards of the Los Angeles Dodgers team that barnstormed in Mexico that year. The images on those cards depict each player in Mexico and are unique images not found on any other cards. They measure 1 3/4" by 2 1/2". There are between 3 and 5 examples known of each cards, and almost all of them have paper loss on the reverse. The back were printed upside down.
This lot is for #115 Lou Gehrig.
