1963 Cincinnati Enquirer Scrapbook

I wanted to correct a lot of the errors in the checklist of this set and other newspaper sets so I ventured to the library and the microfilm and recataloged the set and also listed them by the day they were issued.  For those unfamiliar with the set from 1958-1967 the Cincinnati Enquirer and Kentucky Enquirer (for those across the river) printed 1 reds player with a brief history of that player in sports section up until opening day.  This makes them rather rare to find as any newspaper from that era is rare to find but as these were supposed to be saved I've seen them more in complete or semi complete sets for sale rather than the singles.  Pete just made the cut for the rookie issue and also just made the cut for the team as he is the last in this set.  Below is the complete checklist with dates issued.
