This era included several gas station giveaways, promotions where just visiting the stations garnered free items; other gifts came with a gasoline purchase. In the summer of ’68 American Oil stations gave out perforated pairs of sports-related cards in a “Winner’s Circle” promotion.
Some “Winners” won instantly, while others received the designated prize if they could find matching sides of the dollar amount or item. Babe Ruth, for instance, earned a buck. Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Bart Starr, fresh off winning his second straight Super Bowl, brought $5. Sluggers Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle, the latter in his final season, brought the booty to ten bucks each.
Presented are two panels of a 1968 Oil Panel card including the Mickey Mantle card from the left side and Julius Boros from the right side. Both sides show typical handling wear/aging expected from cards of this vintage. See photos.
