Several of the 1966 and 1967 Bazooka Baseball boxes featured the same player photos and the same card numbers. The boxes I am dealing with have Marichal, Killebrew and Callison pictured. The set I am working on is the Harmon Killebrew Master.

PSA recognized these cards, panels and complete boxes as 1966-67.

There is no way to tell these single cards or the three card panels apart. However, the reverse side of the complete boxes are different; 1966 has a small photo of Sandy Koufax, the 1967 has a small photo of Mickey Mantle, additionally there are some numbers printed below the card on the right (in this case Callison).

I had given up on trying to convince PSA of this. Then found that the 2008 Standard Catalog verifies the differences.

It has taken several emails and phone calls to get a new slot created and my complete box added to my set. I had both complete boxes graded correctly, the flips said 1966 on the Koufax 1967 on the one with Mantle, but PSA designated them as the same (1966-67) in their database.

It does seem difficult to get things "fixed", but sometimes it does get done. There is still a 1966-67 box in the set, so things aren't as they should be, but progress has been made.

Thanks PSA!

    Joe-- glad your persistence paid off. Now you can get them to revisit your 1967 Punch Out lineups issue :-)

    Joe...Do you think you can get PSA to get a holder big enough to hold a 71 bazooka full box correctly ? We now know you have "a in" with them.

    Right.......they are NOT YET recognizing the 1967 complete box. Tried to add it several days ago. I doubt that they are going to come up with another holder.

    Finally! Now let's see what they decide to do about the 1966/67 box.

  • I have been trying to get them to list Bazooka panel weighting and pricing for more than a year with no luck. Anyone interested send me a message and ill send you my Xcel spread sheet with bazooka panel weighting and pricing.

    By the way here is now a Bazooka panel master set. See [ https://www.psacard.com/PSASetRegistry/composite/14552 ]

    I agree PSA is all over the board on weighting of Bazooka and a lot of other hard to find issues.
