The very rare and desirable Topps "Punch-Out" regional-issue pieces, which measure approximately 2-1/2" x 4-11/16", feature die-cut, punch-out faces intended to allow play of a baseball-themed game. This intriguing selection from the seldom-found release includes: 1967 Topps "Punch-Out" Cards (3) w/Hank Aaron (NM), Felipe Alou (EX/MT) and Joe Torre (EX/MT); 1967 Topps "Punch-Out" 10¢ Cellophane Wrapper - 15" x 2-1/2", with bright yellow-red-and-black graphics at center, torn from standard opening w/end folds; about EX. The offered cards feature Atlanta Braves players as their pictured "Captains," and such stars as Juan Marichal, Willie Mays and Willie McCovey are listed among their hypothetical teams' line-ups. This is a fascinating collection of visually appealing and minimally distributed specialty pieces, each of which is noted for its prominent placement on many of the hobby's most advanced wantlists.
