    1961 Peters Meats Minnesota Twins Near Set (25/26). The long and history filled run of the Washington Senators came to an end in 1960 when the team folded and the baseball lights went out in our nation's capital. In 1961, bright new lights lit up the darkness as the Minnesota Twins were born. Naturally, local businesses took advantage with special promotions showcasing the new team. These promos were limited to the local region and are not common in today's market. One of the more popular was the Peter's Meats set of 26 cards which were issued in various formats as part of the packages of hotdogs and other meat products. The key to this set is HoFer Harmon Killebrew (EX+). This 25-card presentation (missing #25) offers the 5-3/8" x 3-3/4" and 4-7/8" x 4-1/2" full back panel style formats. The set presents at the EX to EX/MT levels with a few slightly lesser due to creasing/surface scratches. None have the heavy grease stains associated with this production.
