Baseball Card Inserts

Over the years, many different types of inserts have been included in packs of baseball cards to keep them interesting. Here are some from my collection.

In 1962, a set of 200 stamps were inserted. Here is the Mickey Mantle stamp.

In 1964 a set of 164 coins were inserted and in 1971, a 153 coin set. Here is a coin from 1964 and one from 1971.

In 1968, a 33 card baseball game set was issued.

In 1969, a set of 48 small decals were issued.

Also in 1969, a 35 card set of deckle edge cards were inserted.

In 1970, A set of comic like story booklets were issued.

In 1970 and 1971, a scratch off game of 24 was inserted.

But my all time favorite insert, which was around for many years and still is in some sets is.....THE GUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
