1962 Post Cereal Canadian Complete Set (200)

Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $1,840.00

75% Ex to Ex-Mt, 25% Vg-Ex to Vg-Ex/Ex (almost all appearing Ex or better but downgraded due to very slight creases related to their method of issue, or very slight touch of reverse paper loss where the inside cereal wax paper back stuck to the back of the box). Keys: #5 Mantle (153 hits variation, Ex-Mt), 6 Maris (large P variation, Ex), 7 Berra (Ex-Mt), 9 Ford (Dodgers variation, Ex), 9 Ford (Yankees variation, Ex), 20 Kaline (Ex), 29 B. Robinson (Vg-Ex/Ex), 61 Yastrzemski (Ex-Mt), 109 Koufax (Ex), 110 Drysdale (Ex-Mt), 114 Snider (Ex), 122 F. Robinson (Ex), 131 McCovey (Ex), 142 Mays (small head variation, Ex), 149 Aaron (script name large variation, Vg-Ex/Ex), 173 Clemente (Ex), 188 Banks (Vg-Ex). The Canadian Post Cereal set is very similar to its American counterpart, but far rarer due to its very limited distribution in Canada. The Canadian set presents player biographies in both French and English. This complete set consists of 200 different cards plus the Whitey Ford variation for a total of 201 cards. Beautifully cut and far better than your average Post Cereal set, this is a very clean and attractive complete set of this extremely scarce package-design issue, which is difficult to find as a set in any grade. Total 201 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $1,840.00
