1987 Smokey The Bear Dennis "Oil Can" Boyd

This was another Listia win from a while back. I got this for the dreaded 499 credit bid.

From the research I did, it looks like there was a set of thirty-one of these 4x6 cards. There was a sheet of sixteen perforated cards for the American League and a sheet of fifteen perforated cards for the National League.

I had never seen these before, but checking eBay and COMC, it looks like they are quite plentiful in both full sheets and individual cards.


  1. That is fantastic! Something about seeing Boyd with a bear named Smokey is just perfect, I'm gonna have to pick one up. Thanks for posting!

  2. The first time I saw one was a couple weeks ago on Listia too. It wasn't this one, but still cool. I was outbid at the last minute, but I wasn't too disappointed I lost. Glad to hear there are plenty available, I might look for some one day.

  3. Picked up one of these a few years back... Had never looked into the history of it.. Good info

  4. Smokey wears his jeans like an old man.
