Default 1962 Post Cereal Football Book Published

A bit of self-promotion here, but wanted to give interested collectors a heads-up on a book I recently finalized discussing the Post Cereal's 1962 football card promotion. The book titled "Goal Posts: The 1962 Post Cereal Football Card Promotion" is published on Amazon.com. It contain hundreds of color pictures of cards, panels, boxes and advertising materials along with discussion and analysis of various aspects of the card set; and has been very well received within the hobby.

Rich Mueller of Sports Collectors Daily graciously did a write-up today on his website detailing more information about the book. If interested, this is the link to his story.

One of my favorite football sets of all time. I feel very fortunate to own a number of unfolded boxes. Can’t wait to read the book.

The book sounds awesome! I will need to track it down.

For anyone looking for online information about the Post football set, Robin Pauls created a very comprehensive web site here:

Robin is a great guy and also a member of the new Vintage Football Community (VFC)!

I know both Robin and Ken. Robin's site is fantastic. I have ordered Ken's book through Amazon (the wife has Prime so free shipping) I know it will be well worth reading.

I absolutely love this set---player selection is A+, and a top condition set is a beauty to behold. I bought my set (minus 5 cards) from Larry Fritsch in 1980 for about 400.00 (when it was listed for 125.00 in the first Becket FB guide) and am so happy i did. Apparently mine was a second set (in addition to his own) that Fritsch tried to put together as a young collector.
