Partial set of 1962 Post Cereal Football cards, consisting of 107 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). Condition is 12% Ex to Ex-Mt, 43% Vg to Vg-Ex, 18% Gd, and 27% lesser (including one altered). The preceding grades, as well as those in the composite below, are without respect to the neatness of the cut as most of the cards are cut at least partially inside of the borders and might only qualify for "Authentic" if submitted for professional grading. Keys: #6 Hornung (HOF, pen on front, otherwise Pr-Fr), 10 Moore (Vg), 29 Tittle (HOF, Pr), 37 Jurgensen (HOF, Vg), 51 Lane (HOF, pen on reverse, otherwise Vg), 57 Ninowski (red asterisk, Fr), 59 Schmidt (HOF, Ex), 76 Berry (HOF, Vg), 97 Johnson (HOF, Pr-Fr), 111 Ditka (HOF, Vg+), 167 Matson (HOF, Pr-Fr), 186 Youso (Pr), and 193 Krakoski (Vg). A relatively affordable start to a complete set of this very scarce and very underrated early 1960s food issue. Total: 107 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
