Description: Salada-Junket's brief venture into sports collectibles resulted in a set of attractive but very scarce set of all-star baseball player coins. Salada Tea and Junket. Both brands are still around today, and although Salada is still well known, Junket doesn't quite enjoy the widespread recognition it once had. Both brands have long, rich histories, and both brands briefly dipped their toes into the sports collectibles market over 50 years ago with sets of attractive and hard-to-find player coins. Each coin in the 1963 All-Star set measures 1-1/2" in diameter. Circling the upper edge are the words "SAVE AND TRADE 63 ALL STAR BASEBALL COINS," and below this inscription, the text reads "PACKED IN SALADA TEA and junket Brand DESSERTS". Enamel-coated metal was used for the backs, and needless to say, it scratches very easily, as do the edges of the coins. The first 31 slots in the set were reserved for National League (NL) players, and each NL coin has a bright red border around the color photograph. Slots #32 - #63 were occupied by the junior circuit, with each American League (AL) player encircled by a blue border. The back of each coin listed the player's name, position, team, and a handful of 1962 statistics. Some of the coins used illustrations instead of photos, picking up artwork from the 1962 set. All six Los Angeles Dodgers coins present this way. Talk about star power! Twenty-three out of the 63 featured players - over one-third of the set - have plaques at the Hall of Fame.
