Presented is an 81-card partial set of "Diana Cigarettes" plus three duplicates (#’s 9, 16 and 39). An extremely captivating Latin American issue, these items – distributed in Venezuela with “Diana” cigarettes – are reminiscent of the U.S.-issued E107 production. The scarce black-and-white issue is highly visual, with the players’ team logos visible on their uniform jerseys and, in several instances, the hills of Caracas serving as a backdrop for in-action photos. Also noteworthy for its inclusion of important Puerto Rican and Cuban players who have no cards in their native countries, individual specimens from this release are especially scarce: it’s speculated that less than five or six examples exist in almost all numbers. Missing #'s 38, 53, 54, 55, 57, 58, 63, 65, 66, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 75, 76, 77, 79, 82, 83, 85, 88, 89, 91, 92, 93, 97, 98, 101, 102, 106, 107, 110, 111, 114, 115, 116 and 117 for completion. Grades 6% EX, 14% VG to VG/EX, 80% PR to GD. Total: 84 cards.
