Although only two copies are known to exist, the earliest card picturing Jose Mendez hails from the 1910 Punch Cuban League series. Subsequently, three very scarce Cuban League issues depicting Mendez were also produced during the 1923-24 Winter League season by Billiken, Tomas Gutierrez and Nacionales. Another very tough to find card of Mendez was issued the following season, in 1925, by Aguilitas.
