Head way far south of the border with this trio of programs from the Venezuela Baseball League. The Venezuela League was established in 1946, making these programs fairly early examples, that are also considered fairly scarce. All (3) of these game day souvenirs are dated on the front covers, which feature identical Chesterfield Cigarette ads with head shots of prominent Major League period stars Yogi Berra, Robin Roberts, Gil Hodges, Eddie Stanky, Phil Rizzuto, George Kell, Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio and Stan Musial. The rosters printed on the scorecard pages include Negro League legend Wilmer Fields, Chico Carrasquel, the first Latin American MLB All-Star and Luis Aparicio Sr., father of Hall of Famer Luis Aparicio. Fields is also noted as the league leading hitter in the stats section printed inside the front cover. Featured are: 1/22/52 not scored (GD); 1/26/52 (GD+); and 2/14/52 cover only (FR).
