Description

Wheaties pioneered the baseball card on the cereal box but Post that perfected it. When Wheaties first used baseball players to sell their product, the sets ranged in size from six to twenty-five subjects. Post decided to print a truly complete set that comprised of (200) subjects. Most cards were obtained by cutting them from the cereal boxes while some could be obtained through the Post Company and came on team sheets, creating tough variations for some players. These cards were beautifully craved from the Post cereal boxes with the precision of a surgeon and are crease-free. The large assortment does include some big stars, Hall of Famers, lots of NY Yankees and rare variations; 1961 #5 Bob Turley (EX-MT), 10 Gil McDougald (EX-MT), #19 Luis Aparicio (EX-MT), #73 Chuck Estrada (NM), 1962 #92 Norm Siebern (EX-MT), 101 Gil Hodges (NM) and 158 Bill White (EX-MT). The composite condition for the collection is a solid EX-MT to NM condition for all examples. For the complete list of singles please visit our website.
