Description

Assembled is a group of (5) 1961-1963 Post Cereal and Jello complete boxes that combine for a total of (13) cards and a pair of shortprints. These storefront survivors include various brands from the Post Cereal/Jello product line including complete boxes from 1961: Frosted Flakes (#9 Kubek, #42 Mossi, #83 Daley, #121 Herrera, #146 Kirkland SP, #169 Podres, #188 Bailey); 1962: Alpha-Bits (#49 Aparicio, torn top), Post-Tens (#28 Breeding, #84 B. Martin, #158 B. White SP, slight water damage); 1963: Jello Raspberry (#191 Lillis, torn top) and Jello Strawberry (#91 Pascual, torn top). The 1961 Corn Flakes box reveals only negligible wear, while the other noted flaws on the other boxes do not adversely affect the cards. These scarce display pieces are a prime coupling of vintage American advertising with our national pastime.
