    1951 Wheaties Complete Set (6) - All Mint Unfolded Boxes! It's nice to be able to write "complete set" and "Mint" in the same sentence and here it is... Offered is a complete set of 6 Wheaties "Breakfast of Champions" cards from 1951 in mint condition. Six champions of various sports graced the backs of individual-sized boxes of Wheaties cereal that year including Bob Feller, Johnny Lujack, George Mikan, Stan Musial, Sam Snead and Ted Williams! The '51 edition is considerably more scarce than the '52 cards and we have these gems thanks to a small discovery of supposedly 100+ boxes, all stunning uncirculated compete boxes flats in the early 1990's. Two decades later examples from this find are rarely made available for auction. This set certainly comes from that discovery as they appear unhandled and "pack fresh." Each is approx. 9x7-/14," framed and matted, they would make for great wall display!
