YOU ARE CURRENTLY VIEWING A VERY RARE SET OF PITTSBURGH PIRATE BASEBALL CARDS.

THIS SET WAS GIVEN OUT BY ARCO GAS STATIONS IN THE 1970'S AS A PREMIUM FOR PURCHASING A FULL TANK OF GAS. THE PLAYER ON THE CARD CHANGED EACH WEEK SO IT WAS NOT EASY TO OBTAIN THE FULL SET UNLESS YOU REMEMBERED TO GO TO THE ARCO STATION TO FILL YOUR TANK EVERY WEEK ! OF COURSE BACK THEN GAS WAS NOT OVER $3.00 A GALLON BUT WE DID HAVE RATIONING WHICH ALSO MADE THIS SET HARD TO OBTAIN.

THESE ARE LARGE CARDS AND SIZED TO FIT IN AN 8 X 10 FRAME. THE PLAYERS SIGNATURE IS PRINTED ON THE FRONT OF EACH CARD. THESE ARE REPRODUCTION PRINTS.

THESE CARDS ARE IN MINT CONDITION. THEY ALSO HAVE STATISTICS ON THE BACK OF EACH CARD JUST LIKE REGULAR SIZE CARDS.

T ARE A TOTAL OF TWELVE CARDS IN THE SET. PLAYERS INCLUDED ARE WILLIE STARGELL, BOB MOOSE, LUKE WALKER, MANNY SANGUILLEN, BILL MAZEROSKI, DAVE GUSTIE, GENE ALLEY, AL OLIVER, THE LATE GREAT ROBERTO CLEMENTE, BOB ROBERTSON, RICHIE HEBNER, STEVE BLASS AND LUKE WALKER.

SOME OF THESE MEN ARE STILL WITH US AND SOME ARE NOT BUT WE ALL REMEMBER THEM FOR THEIR GREATNESS, THEIR KINDNESS, THEIR COMMUNITY SERVICE AND MOST OF ALL THE WAY THEY PLAYED THE GAME !

THESE CARDS CAN BE FRAMED AND THEY LOOK GREAT IN THE GAME ROOM, DEN OR A CHILD'
