The regular 64s have like an orangish back while the Venezuelans have a black back. I also provided a sample of the regular 64s.
And here is the regular back:

Most of them are from my Bob Allison collection: 1962-1964-1966-1968. I kinda hoard them.....I have 4 of his 1964 card.....The only one of his that I don't have is the 1959 card, which is gonna be impossible to find. I also have a '64 HR Leaders with Killebrew, and a '66 Earl Battey.
I'm actually surprised at the prices they go for. They really aren't that expensive unless you start getting to the higher grade versions or the big names.
I commend you on working on a very challenging set! I hope that you can keep us updated on the progress!

You may be aware of Dave's Vintage in California. He has sold a lot of Venezuelans in the past. I don't see a 1959 Allison listed on his website, but I do know he holds some that he does not publish in inventory. Might be worth reaching out to him. His website is gfg.com.

There are 2 graded '59s, one being in the PSA Set Registry, but don't know where the other is. I'm sure there has to be more raw versions out there.
I am very familiar with Dave's Vintage. I actually purchased 3 of my Allisons from him. Good point to contact him about stuff he's not publishing. Never thought about that so I'll have to give it a try!

As for Dave, I purchased a number of 66 VZ HOF's that he did not have listed but I've noticed he's really pumped up the price of his Venezuelans over the past year. You may know John Rumierz from ebay as well. He has a pretty extensive personal collection in addition to what he has listed on ebay and could help you find your Allison as well.
