Complete set of 1962 Post Cereal Football cards, consisting of 200 different cards from Post's only football set produced within the United States. Condition is 11% Nr/Mt, 49% Ex to Ex-Mt, 27% Vg to Vg-Ex, and 13% lower. The preceding grades, as well as those in the composite below, are without respect to the neatness of the cut as approximately sixty percent of the cards are cut inside of the borders and would only qualify for "Authentic" if submitted for professional grading. (The cards are generally cut neatly, although there are some cases of jagged or tapering cuts.) Keys: #6 Hornung (Vg+), 8 Kramer (Ex-Mt), 10 Moore (pencil on back, otherwise Ex), 12 Starr (Ex), 13 Taylor (Vg), 24 Morrison (Ex-Mt), 25 Nolan (pen writing on back, otherwise Ex), 28 Shofner (Ex), 29 Tittle (Vg-Ex), 37 Jurgensen (Ex), 41 Richardson (Gd+), 43 Walston (pen writing on back, otherwise Vg), 54 McCord (Nr/Mt), 59 Schmidt (Ex-Mt), 61 Brown (Ex), 62 Fiss (Vg), 74 S. Baker (Vg), 90 Unitas (Vg), 93 D. Baker (Fr), 97 Johnson (Ex), 103 St. Clair (Vg+), 110 Coia (Ex), 111 Ditka (Ex+), 117 Morris (Ex), 126 Layne (Ex), 133 Tracy (Ex), 135 Clarke (Vg-Ex+), 136 Connelly (Gd), 139 Green (Fr), 141 Lilly (Ex-Mt), 142 Meredith (Vg-Ex), 145 Tubbs (Gd), 153 Koman (Gd), 158 Guglielmi (Gd), 169 Pardee (Ex-Mt), 176 Joyce (altered, writing on front masked by added color), 184 Tarkenton (Vg-Ex+), 186 Youso (corner cut off, otherwise Vg-Ex), 188 Anderson (Ex-Mt), and 193 Krakoski (pen writing back, paper loss on front). An extremely attractive complete set of this scarce and very underrated early 1960s food issue. Total: 200 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+.
