I have problems with team sets. First of all, most of them have no markings on them so it's hard to figure out what year there are from. There are also sometimes subtle differences that are hard to catch like their name is spelled in ALL CAPS or with Just The First Letters Capped. Sometimes they will use the exact same card of a players for years in a row while changing the photo used on the rest of the team. All in all it is a pain to track down team issues.
I picked up a Pirates Team set that I haven't been able to identify. There are 9 cards, all with facsimile autographs, which I am assuming it is a complete team set but I don't know for sure. All the photos on them I have seen used on different sets before like 60s Jay Publishing, 61 Kahn, and 64 Sports Science and they are all semi glossy with a blank back. The real kicker though is that they are all 3.5 x 2.5 and I can't find any early 60s team issues that are that size. So what are they?
EDIT: Somehow I broke the blog. Don't know why the funny letter background change is happening.
So when you come across something like this how do you identify it? Maybe throwing it on a blog and pleading for help will work. Probably not when I only have a few dozen readers.
