Description

This scarce 1963 Post Cereal/Jell-O complete set of (200) cards is loaded with difficult shortprints and top-shelf Hall of Famers. Being that some products sold more than others, certain common players are much scarcer and are more in demand than some superstars. The approximate condition breakdown of this set is 10% (EX-MT or better), 25% (EX), 25% (VG-EX) and 40% (VG or lesser). Because the cards were issued on backs of the cereal boxes, very few were cut in a clean manner, and the grades reflect as such. Additionally, almost a third of the set reveals varying degrees of paper loss and scant instances of reverse writing. Highlights include Post: (194 cards) with #15 Mantle (GD), #16 Maris (GD), #17 Berra (EX), #30 L. Thomas (VG), #39 F. Robinson (VG), #86 Lumpe (EX), #106 Mays (GD), #108 Haller (VG), #119 W. Davis (VG-EX), #121 Koufax (VG), #131 F. Robinson (NM, striped hat), #143 Clemente (EX-MT), #152 Aaron (EX/EX-MT), #162 Flood (GD), #166 Gibson (VG), #187 Aspromonte (GD), #199 Kanehl (EX-MT); Jell-O (6 cards) with #61 Adair (VG) and #80 Yastrzemski (VG).
