Tatuaje Tu

Well, they are tattered and torn and the scans are poor but I am super excited about an unknown to the hobby 1960 Baseball Tattoo from Venezuela that just sold on eBay (for $360).  Here is what all the fuss was about:

Compare to this US wrapper (Venezuelan wrappers often had different color schemes than the US ones):

An OPC pack shows the international flavor of this issue:

The indicia is hard to read but indicates the pack was made in Venezuela:

The purchaser got a tattoo of Don Drysdale for their troubles:

I'm pretty sure I know who won the auction and hope to have some hi-resolution scans at some point.  Now, can you imagine what a nicer wrapper or pack like the US and Canadian examples shown above would bring?!
