Set of 97 1965 Donruss Hot Rod Magazine Series 1 Spec Sheet Cards G/VG/EX

The Series 1 set has 66 cards (this listing includes one each of 58 of the 66 cards (only missing 8 cards) along with 39 duplicates. 

Based on internet research, it appears that this set was issued by Donruss in 1965 under the title "Hot Rod Bubble Gum, Series 1" but it is referred to with the “Spec Sheet” title that is on the back of every card. There are several cards of well-known drag racers in the set. Card #49 is the rookie card of Bobby Unser (one card included), a three-time Indy 500 winner. Card #59 is Motor Sports Hall of Fame inductee drag racer Connie Kalitta (2 cards included). Card fronts include a full-color photo, with a thin white border. The card backs offer a short writeup (specs) for the picture on the front.

These cards would make a perfect gift for any car and hot rod fans, including yourself!
