Collection: Morrell Meats and More Postcards

As you can imagine, when the Dodgers landed in LA various promotional/ advertising items were created to take advantage of their popularity. One manufacturer was Morrell Meats. They produced 3 sets from 1959 to 1961 that can can be very difficult to come by today. There are the same size as Baseball cards of the time. I believe they were put in packages of hot dogs which might explain why they are usually found in rough condition. I wonder if Morrell Meats was the original Farmer John? Anyway, the below cards are from the 1960 set (i still need 6 more) and feature Dodger players before a game at the LA Coliseum. Check out my photoalbum of Morrell Meats cards here.

I added 12 more Dodger postcards into my photoalbum. Below are 2 of them. There is a 1963-64 Don Drysdale and 1966 "Sweet" Lou Johnson. See my photoalbum here.
