Complete set of 1962 Post Cereal, consisting of 200 cards and accompanied by several related items, including an uncut panel. Condition is 42% Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt (including a couple better), 45% Vg-Ex to Ex, and 13% Gd to Vg (including one lesser). The preceding grades, as well as those in the composite below, are without respect to the neatness of the cut as several of the cards are cut inside of the borders and would only qualify for "Authentic" if submitted for professional grading. Keys: #5a Mantle (box, Ex), 6a Maris (box, Nr/Mt), 7 Berra (Ex-Mt+), 55 Wynn (Vg-Ex), 61 Yastrzemski (Ex-Mt+), 69 Keough (Ex), 83 Allison (Vg-Ex), 92 Siebern (Ex), 101 Hodges (Gd), 109 Koufax (red lines, Vg+), 113 Larker (Nr/Mt), 116 Coleman (Nr/Mt-Mt), 127 Lynch (Fr-Gd), 131 McCovey (Ex-Mt+), 140 Marichal (Ex+), 142 Mays (Vg-Ex+), 145 Adcock (Vg-Ex), 149 Aaron (Nr/Mt), 158 White (Ex-Mt), 173 Clemente (red lines, Vg-Ex+), and 188 Banks (Vg). An extremely attractive complete set of this scarce and underrated early 1960s food issue. Also included are a 1962 Post seven-card uncut panel from the back of a box, with #10 Terry, 44 Held, 72 Green, 108 Podres, 137 Bailey, 164 Broglio, and 187 Altman (the panel is in Vg condition), a Post Raisin Bran box front with Roger Maris image (Vg-Ex), a Post Grape-Nuts box front with Mickey Mantle image (Gd), and a Life Magazine insert with Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris cards (Ex). Total: 204 items. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
