Lot # 1529 (of 1727)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1962 and 1963 Post Cereal CFL Football Set Collection (2 Sets, 330 Cards)

Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $1,175

Collection of two Canadian football sets issued by Post Cereal in 1962 and 1963. Many stars of the day from the Canadian Football League highlight this collection of 330 different cards. The Canadian sets present player biographies in both French and English. 1) 1962 Post Near-Complete Set (129/137). The set is missing only the following eight cards for completion: #41, 53, 84, 86, 121, 131, 132, 136. 15% grade Ex-Mt, 40% range from Vg to Ex (averaging Vg-Ex), and 45% range from Fr to Gd (with a few slightly lesser). Keys: #1 Clark (Gd), 4 Dixon (Vg), 57 Faloney (Ex-Mt), 113 Parker (Ex-Mt), and 137 Kapp (Ex-Mt). 2) 1963 Post Complete Set (200 plus one variation). 20% range from Ex to Ex-Mt, 50% range from Vg to Vg-Ex, and 30% range from Fr to Gd (with a few slightly lesser). Keys: #25 Jackson (Gd-Vg), 38 Parker (Ex), 59 Faloney/close up (Ex), 59 Faloney/full pose (Fr), and 154 Kaap (Gd-Vg). Each set of cards is cut far better than your average Post Cereal set. This is a very attractive collection of these extremely scarce package-design issues, which are difficult to find as sets in any grade. Total 330 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200.
