Among the most coveted and elusive early bobbleheads are found in the 1963-1965 black face series. Considered by many as an experimental issue, these figures were released in a pair of runs, with the first type being the more difficult. The offered 1963-1965 St. Louis Cardinals black face bobblehead (type 1) is an extraordinary representation of the team. Standing nearly 7 in height, the city logo on the green base is slightly weathered but still very readable. The uniform is bright and clean, while the oversized head reveals minor chipping on the right cheek and on the bill and side of the navy blue cap. Additionally, the team emblem on the cap also exhibits minimal flaking. The reverse of the figure is mostly clean with only a dot of wear found above the cleats. The bottom still has the patent sticker affixed and is white and vibrant. More presentable than most of the handful of other examples which have been offered, this scarce high-grade specimen is ready to be a collection mainstay.
