Congrats John!!! Now that is an incredible pick-up. Why can't I ever find items like that at the flea market? I didn't even know that the Post cards were issued in singles, I always thought they were issued like this (or in perforated sheet form)...



Great pick-up!

Mike

The Post cards came in sheets or on boxes, which are a thicker stock. They generally came in 5 or 7 card panels on the back of boxes (like yours). The closely related Jello cards came individually on the smaller Jello boxes, but I have never seen a small snack-size Post box before. A great pick-up!

What a great Aaron box!
I've seen two or three others, all of them Alpha Bits. There was a Koufax that sold in the Legendary Bill Mastro collection auction in December.

Thanks. But it wasn't cheap and I originally decided to pass on it. In fact I was already out the door and half way to my car when I had a change of heart. I collect Milwaukee Braves cards and I knew I'd never seen another one, and probably wouldn't ever see one again, so I decided to go for it. Even though my box is empty, I'm glad my wife decided to give me the go-ahead especially after seeing how much the Koufax went for.

Finally decided to go after the '52 set. Here's my 1st pickup for the set (and a possible resubmit for a bump?). Three guesses where I bought it!

Nice pick up Brandon!

I picked up this '52 Jackie this week to complete my '52-56 Jackie run. The creases are not as bad in person as the scans suggest, but it's still no where near the condition of your Mays. I can certainly understand why you'd want to pursue this set. Good luck!



Regards,

Richard.
