Most Cuban baseball cards from the Castro era (post-1960) are more scarce than the toughest of Cuban baseball card issues from the 1920s and earlier. Cards from the 1987 Circulo de Veteranos del Deporte set occasionally turn up, but they are rare. They measure about 3" by 4" and are on thick cardboard stock. The reverse has a 1987 calendar. Orestes Kindelán (not sure why it is spelled "Quindelan" ) was the greatest power hitter of the Cuban amateur era. He is the all-time home run king with 487 homers in the Cuban National Series.
