eBay Buy: 1959 Dodgers Postcards

I picked up 2 great new postcards on eBay. Check them out below. They are from 1959 season and has a total of 12 cards for a complete set. My find includes catcher John Roseboro and infielder Carl Furillo. They were sold in souvenir stands during games, and is one of the earliest team issued sets for the new LA team. What makes this set unique is the backdrop. Only the 1959 and 1960 sets feature all of the players on the field at the Los Angeles Colieum.
A unusual collecting fact is that the exact same photos where used for the Morrell Meats LA Dodger set inserted in hot dog packages from the same year. I paid $10.00 a piece for the postcards.
