Description

The offered 1961 Post Cereal complete set of (200) cards marked the first time that the cereal manufacturer issued multiple cards on the their products. The set was also distributed by the company through a promotional campaign. Being that some products sold more than others, certain common players are much scarcer and are more in demand than some superstars. The approximate condition breakdown of this set is 10% (EX-MT or better), 20% (EX), 20% (VG-EX), 30% (VG) and 20% (off-grade). Due to the cards being issued on backs of the cereal boxes, very few were cut in a clean manner, which the grades reflect.
