    Description

    1962 Post Cereal Baseball Complete Set (200). Post Cereal offered a quantity of baseball cards as part cereal boxes from 1961 through 1963. Because of brand popularity and boxes sizes (some only offered one card), there are a number of scarcities. With young consumers assigned the task of separating the panels, precisely hand cut examples with full borders are difficult to find and highly prized when encountered. This presentation is exceptional in that regard. Almost every card has close to a full keyline. Where a segment is missing, the card is still very close to being full size. It is quickly obvious a great deal of care went into separating the cards. A lucky 13 cards (with full keyline) have been graded by SGC. Highlights include: Graded Cards - SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5: 1 card, #157 Spangler; SGC 88 NM/MT 8: 6 cards w/#'s 98 Archer, 109 Koufax/Red Lines, 138 Jones, 149 Aaron, 165 Jackson and 193; SGC 86 NM+ 7.5: 2 cards w/#'s 173 Clemente/Red Lines and 184 Santo; SGC 84 NM 7: 2 cards w/#'s 61 Yastrzemski and 62 Jensen; SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 1 card, #47 Fox; SGC 60 EX 5: 1 card, #5 Mantle/Box. Ungraded Cards - Highlights include: #'s 6 Maris/Box (VG/EX), 7 Berra (NM), 9 Ford (EX/MT), 20 Kaline (EX/MT), 26 Bunning (NM), 29 Robinson (EX), 55 Wynn (GD, paper on rev.), 60 Geiger (FR), 69 Keough (EX/MT), 83 Allison (EX), 85 Killebrew (NM), 92 Siebern (EX), 101 Hodges (EX/MT), 103 Spencer (VG/EX), 110 Drysdale (NM, factory wax on rev.), 113 Larker (EX/MT), 114 Snider (EX/MT), 116 Coleman (NM), 122 Robinson (EX/MT), 125 Brosnan (NM), 127 Lynch (NM), 131 McCovey (VG/EX), 140 Marichal (NM), 142 Mays (EX), 144 Amalfitano (EX/MT), 147 Mathews (NM), 158 White (EX/MT), 188 Banks (EX/MT) and 189 Taylor (EX/MT).
