1962 and 1963 Post Cereal CFL Football Complete Set Collection (4 Sets, 617 Cards)
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,440
Collection of four Canadian football sets issued by Post Cereal in 1962 and 1963. Many stars of the day from the Canadian Football League highlight this collection, which consists of one complete 1962 set and three complete 1963 sets (two of which are entirely mounted inside the collector's album designed to house this set). Also included is one unused collector's album. The Canadian Post Cereal Football sets present player biographies in both French and English. The grades assigned in the condition composite below are without respect to the neatness of cutting (some might only qualify for "Authentic" if submitted for professional grading). These cards, of course, were issued as package-design cards on boxes of Post Cereal, and had to be hand-cut from the box, as intended. 1) 1962 Post Cereal CFL Complete Set (137 cards): 90% range in grade from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (averaging Ex), 10% lesser (mostly Vg). Keys: #1 Clark (Vg+), 4 Dixon (Ex), 39 Gilchrist (Ex-Mt), 46 Rote (Ex), 57 Faloney (Ex-Mt), 113 Parker (Vg-Ex), and 137 Kapp (Vg-Ex+). 2) 1963 Post Cereal CFL Complete Set (160 cards): 90% grade Ex to Ex-Mt, 10% Vg-Ex. Keys: #25 Jackson (Ex-Mt), 38 Parker (Ex-Mt), 59 Faloney/full pose (Ex), 69 Mosca (Ex), and 154 Kaap (Ex+).3-4) 1963 Post Cereal CFL Complete Set (2 sets, 320 total cards): Each set is mounted inside the collector's album designed for this issue. One set is entirely mounted, while some cards from the second have loosened over time and display heavy glue residue on the blank reverses. Cards present as Ex overall. 5) 1963 Post Cereal CFL Collector's Album: Unused and in Excellent condition overall, with light wear to the corners. Interior pages are Nr/Mt. 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: 617 cards and three albums. SOLD FOR $1,440
