Vintage Oddball Week, Part 2: Cereal Killing

Yeah, that pun has never been used before by anyone ever. 

VOW continues with some cards fought over at the breakfast table many decades ago, only to fall into my lap in the past couple years. Post and Kellogg's. One of each will suffice. And I'm breaking my vintage classification at the end, as the Kellogg's run went into the 80's.

In terms of set completion, for the 1961-1963 Post run, I'm sitting at 24/39 (not counting Canadian versions). For the 1970-1983 Kellogg's run, I'm sitting at 29/57, though sadly none from the 1971 set.

1961 Post Billy Martin.

1962 Post Frank Robinson.

1962 Post Canadian Vada Pinson. C'est magnifique.

1963 Post Jim O'Toole.

1970 Kellogg's Jim Maloney.
1972 Kellogg's Lee May.

1973 Kellogg's Joe Morgan.

1974 Kellogg's Johnny Bench.

1975 Kellogg's Cesar Geronimo.

1976 Kellogg's Clay Carroll.

1977 Kellogg's George Foster.

1978 Kellogg's George Foster.

1979 Kellogg's Dan Driessen.

1980 Kellogg's Johnny Bench.

1981 Kellogg's Johnny Bench
1982 Kellogg's Dave Concepcion.

1983 Kellogg's Dave Concepcion.

Go Reds.

  1. Two more great sets. Love the posts. I've only picked up a few of the Canadian versions, they are to similar the U.S. version . Not worth the premium. I managed to complete the Sox Post and Kellogg's runs without dropping to much dough.
