1953-54 Album de Oro card #124 of the great Martin Dihigo. One of two known examples. 1952-53 Album de Oro cards from Venezuela have been known for many years, but 1953-54 Album de Oro cards were unknown until the past few years. The 1952-53 cards have individual portraits of Venezuelan League players with solid red backgrounds. The set has 90 cards. The 1953-54 cards have many of the same portraits as the 1952-53 set, but with the background more of a light pink, and there are 144 cards in the set. The cards from both years measures 1 7/8" by 2 1/8". There are no known examples of the 1952-53 card of Dihigo, although he does have a space in the album.
