Possible New Hobby Discovery - South American Sticker/Stamp Book with stars!

I just shared this in another thread, but I think it deserves its own. A fellow Garvey collector obtained this album when he bought it for the Concepcion and was "pleasantly surprised" to find a Garvey that was unknown to either of us. I am guessing these date to 1979 or 1980, based on images seen. The Garvey is almost a dead ringer for his Studio One poster, which I'll share in the 2nd post. Here they are in their glory!

I hope he keeps the album intact, but would love to see some player collectors have a shot at these too, if he decides to break it up. I know I am SOL in this case, so I have no incentive to fight for a break up.

I think the 100 catcher is Bo Diaz, but I don't know what the "A Grif--" name is supposed to indicate. No players with a name like that played catcher in that era, far as I can tell.

Barry Foote is also a strong contender. Can you imagine the Phillies had Foote and Diaz consecutively as their backups for Bob Boone? Were they mandated to have a beefy mustache guy?

I also had never heard of Harry Ghappas, so I thought it was a made up or horribly spelled name. Turns out he was a real guy named Harry Chappas on the cover of SI, from which the image was lifted.

Wonderful find. Maybe post on Net54, they have some guys with knowledge of really obscure issues.
