Here is a card catalog that's been sitting in a folder in my desk since 1968. It is from Card Collector's Company in Franklin Square NY, dated Jan 15, 1968. It measures 6" x 9", and is 10 pages.
The left side of page 5, and the right side of page 4:

I just saw a recent entry in Baseball-Almanac.com that 1960s' infielder Jose Arcia passed away on July 30th, 2016 at age 72. (no obituary found)
Originally signed by the expansion Houston Colt .45s in 1962, Arcia made his major-league debut with the Cubs during the 1968 season as a utility infielder.
He then played 2 seasons with the Padres: 1969 as their primary 2nd baseman, and 1970 as one of their two shortstops. He played in the minors for the next 6 seasons, before retiring in 1976.
