In 1977, popular disc producer Michael Schechter Associates, produced a 216-piece disc set for the Burger Chef restaurant chain. They came in 9-disc team sets on a cardboard fun meal tray.
The disks were unnumbered and were only licensed by the Players Association so they had to have logos airbrushed out. That means everyone got either a solid black or white hat.
This Nolan Ryan would be my favorite from the Angels team set.
This Ryan card is the most valuable in the whole 216-piece set, making the complete Angels tray the most valuable of the team sets. Gotta go find me the complete Angels tray now.
The backs of the disks featured different Burger Chef characters.
And some pretty goofy ones at that. I'm unfamiliar with Burger Chef so I have no idea if these guys were from a TV cartoon or strictly characters for the fast food chain.
Since the others are all just too weird for me (maybe that's my age talking) I'd have to give Jeff the nod as my favorite character of the group (kinda looks like my brother Jeff as well). Works out great too that Jeff is on the back of Joe Rudi's card. Growing up a buddy and I wanted to be Joe Rudi so we'd often practice his diving catches out on the front lawn. Lots of fun.
Here's an example from my collection of a tray that these discs came on. This Red Sox tray is folded up, but the tray would unfold to create a little baseball diamond game with a stadium backdrop. There are 9 cards to a team set, so the other 4 cards are on the other side of the box. The cards are perforated so that they could be punched out. Oh and look, 4 more goofy characters that served as game pieces.
