Coveted in virtually any form, the stars gracing the backs of 1964 Meadow Gold milk cartons reached the pinnacle of allure on this complete carton showcasing the entire quartet of Mantle, Koufax, Mays and Mazeroski. The blue-tint likenesses have been spared the incidental dings and wrinkles incurred by remaining portions of the item long ago at the breakfast table. An absolute rarity in its complete form. More details on our website.

Opposite the four-player panel, an ad for "Picture Records" hawks 33 RPM keepsakes affording audio-visual appeal from one of (12) stars. All are listed and include: Mantle, Koufax, Ford, Maris, Drysdale, Mays, Spahn, Banks (pictured), Kaline, Colavito, Gentile, Mazeroski, Allison, K. Boyer, F. Robinson and Ward. (These records could be had, incidentally, for 25 cents apiece.)

As mentioned in the catalog description, the half-gallon carton has scattered creases (none of which affect the four-player panel) and appears to have been re-adhered opposite the opening.
