Near-complete set of 1962 Post Cereal Football cards, consisting of 173 out of 200 different cards from Post's only football set produced within the United States (the company produced several sets of Canadian Football League players during the same time period). Missing #9, 10 Moore, 15, 28 Shofner, 29 Tittle, 48, 54 McCord, 78, 84, 85, 92 Brodie, 93 Baker, 103 St. Clair, 110 Coia, 111 Ditka, 117 Morris, 133 Tracy, 136 Connelly, 139 Green, 145 Tubbs, 153 Koman, 163, 164, 175, 176 Joyce, 181, and 193 Krakoski for completion. Condition is 26% Ex to Ex-Mt, 56% Vg to Vg-Ex, and 18% Pr to Gd. The preceding grades, as well as those in the composite below, are without respect to the neatness of the cut as almost all the cards are cut inside of the borders and would only qualify for "Authentic" if submitted for professional grading. Keys: #6 Hornung (Vg+), 8 Kramer (Vg-Ex), 12 Starr (Pr-Fr), 13 Taylor (altered due to glued tear), 24 Morrison (Vg+), 25 Nolan (Vg-Ex+), 37 Jurgensen (Vg), 41 Richardson (Vg+), 43 Walston (Gd), 47 Cogdill (PSA Authentic), 59 Schmidt (pen mark on back, otherwise Vg+), 61 Brown (pen marks on front, otherwise Gd), 62 Fiss (Vg-Ex), 74 S. Baker (cut very small, otherwise Vg), 90 Unitas (Vg), 97 Johnson (Vg+), 126 Layne (Vg), 135 Clarke (Vg-Ex), 141 Lilly (Pr-Fr), 142 Meredith (Vg-Ex+), 158 Guglielmi (Gd), 169 Pardee (Vg-Ex+), 184 Tarkenton (Vg+), 186 Youso (Ex+), and 188 Anderson (Ex). A relatively affordable near-complete set of this very scarce and very underrated early 1960s food issue. Total: 173 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
