I did manage to obtain the Grape Nuts Maris from a fellow board member some months ago, along with the Grape Nuts Mays. They simply don't come along very often, although it seems a significant number of dealers still don't know what they have.

Best of luck in your collecting endeavors,

Larry

If there are box flats around, there may be some printer's info in the waste areas that get hidden by glued flaps in assembly.

It could be a code or a small logo' I know some Bowman sets had union/local information on the packaging, which might also be a way to figure it for US sets, not sure about Canada,

Do your books just cover 1962 Canadian Post or do you also have books dealing with the other Jello and Post sets from 1961 to 1963. I think I would be interested in purchasing whatever you have, but it was a little unclear to me what your asking price is. If you could forward any information that you have for me and tell me how to get the money to you I would greatly appreciate it.

What are the 15 very expensive short prints cards?

I have some pics in my Net54 picture link below of some 62 Post cards I own, although I don't think any fall into that category?

Default Tough Canadian 62 Baseball

Irv,

Based on Dan Mabey's book and my long experience in collecting Post Cereal and Jell-O cards here are what I consider the toughest 62 Canadians:

Joe Amalfitano
Jackie Jensen
Hal Smith
Dick Brown
Sam Jones
Ralph Terry
Chuck Estrada
Larry Sherry
Dick Williams
Curt Simmons

This is in no particular order and is based on what I have seen since the 70's as to the availability of these cards. Some I have never seen. Also the Sandy Koufax with the correct "Walks" in the statistic block is extremely tough. Again, this is just an opinion and is in somewhat agreeing with Dan's books.

Mike

Default a little variation

I am down to needing two cards from this set: Rocky Bridges and Hal Smith. My top ten hardest cards might be slightly different--the last three cards I have obtained were Yogi Berra, Joe Amalfitano and John Romano. I would probably add Tito Francona to my list as well. So--

Rocky Bridges
Hal Smith
Yogi Berra
John Romano
Tito Francona
Dick Williams
Joe Amalfitano
Jackie Jensen
Larry Sherry
Jim Gilliam

Again in no particular order--just highlights the number of really tough cards to track down in this set.
