Call for Call-Bulletin Giants transfer data

Can we help out a helpful collector? Larry Serota is a frequent contributor of new finds and information for the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards. He is requesting our help in finding information for which he has been searching for some 15 years.
In his collection Larry has an 8-1/2" x 12" (the picture here is cut off some at the top and bottom) color transfer of Willie Mays.
The transfer reportedly came as an insert with the San Francisco Call-Bulletin newspaper, but the possible date of its issue is ambiguous. Larry believes it originated either from a 1958 issue, when the Giants came to the Coast, or from 1962, when they won the National League pennant.
It is also believed that there were other players issued. If you can help with information (preferably with a scan) on other players in this series, we could probably nail down an issue date. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
