This series is a promotional version of the 1963 "Topps Astronauts" series. The fronts of the cards are identical in both series, but this series has a "Popsicle" promotional message on the back. These cards are much more difficult to find in higher grade than their non-promotional counterparts. The foundation for this set was provided by Kevin of RK Books, Hicksville, NY. I bought two raw sets from him, graded them and merged them. Steve Wysocki provided some great upgrades, including the #1 card, in Jund 2006. ALl in all, this is an excruciatingly difficult set to compile in high grade. But it's neat! UPDATED
