1962 Post Cereal Football Near-Complete Set (199/200)
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,200
Near-complete set of 1962 Post Cereal Football cards, consisting of 199 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 only the tough #93 Baker short print for completion. Condition: 38% grade from Vg-Ex to Ex and 62% grade lesser due to creasing or writing on the reverse (mostly pencil). 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 (Pr), 8 Kramer (Gd), 10 Moore (Fr), 12 Starr (Ex), 13 Taylor (Vg-Ex), 24 Morrison (Ex+), 25 Nolan (Gd), 28 Shofner (Pr), 29 Tittle (Ex-Mt), 37 Jurgensen (Gd), 41 Richardson (Vg-Ex+), 43 Walston (Fr), 54 McCord (Fr), 59 Schmidt (Fr), 61 Brown (Ex), 62 Fiss (Ex), 74 S. Baker (Pr), 90 Unitas (Gd), 97 Johnson (Gd/Vg), 103 St. Clair (Gd), 110 Coia (Ex), 111 Ditka (Vg), 117 Morris (Vg), 126 Layne (Ex), 133 Tracy (Pr), 135 Clarke (Pr), 136 Connelly (Vg-Ex), 139 Green (Vg), 141 Lilly (Fr), 142 Meredith (Ex), 145 Tubbs (Gd/Vg), 153 Koman (Pr), 158 Guglielmi (Ex), 169 Pardee (Gd/Vg), 176 Joyce (Fr), 184 Tarkenton (Vg), 186 Youso (Ex), 188 Anderson (Fr), and 193 Krakoski (Vg). A relatively affordable near-complete set of this very scarce and very underrated early 1960s food issue. Total: 199 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $1,200
