    Description

    1961-63 Post Cereal Baseball Complete Set Run (3) With Rare Clemente/Blue and General Foods Letter/Product List. Offered are 200-card complete sets of all three Post Cereal Baseball editions and a great letter from General Foods. The letter is a response to a young Jimmy Maurin who seemed to have inquired if he could buy a complete set of cards in 1962 as they had done in 1961. He was told that wasn't an option wasn't available in '62 as it seems it was too successful in 1961 but was given a list of what cards were appearing with which product. Eighteen cards have been graded by SGC. Cards are cut close to the intended key line, just a small percentage are cut small.
