Default 1962 Jell-O Cards

Some of my fellow Post Cereal/Jell-O card collectors have been wondering if anyone has a complete set of 1962 Jell-O cards. We are also trying to find out how many complete sets may be in existence. We have compiled a list of the toughest cards in the set. If anyone out there has any sets, please post.

My guess is that there are not too many complete sets of 62 Jell-O out there.....there are probably more complete runs of 62 Post (all variations included) and 61 Post (again w/all variations) than there are 62 Jell-O complete sets(w/o variations). I am nearly complete on the full run 61 and 62 Post sets, about half way on the 63 Jell-O and about 60% on the 62 Post Canadian set. However, with the 62 Jello-O set, I have never even considered starting this set as the cards are so tough to locate (due to either cost and/or availability).

Please let us know how many complete 62 Jell-O sets you know of and if there are any completed with all variations also.....

Default Update

I have completed a 61 Post Cereal Baseball Master Set, in 62 I need 18 cards to complete and in 63 I need 28 cards to complete my master sets. I have a 62 Canadian Baseball set and I am 39 cards short of a complete set.

For football, I am working on a master set of 62 US. I need 5 cards for my set and a lot for a master set. I have a 62 Canadian football set and need 13 cards to complete the plus 8 cards for a master set. I have a complete 63 Canadian football set and am working on the master set, 20 cards to complete.

As for the Jell-O sets, I know what you are saying about the 62 set. I currently have 117 of the cards. For my 63 Jell-O set I need 27 cards.

I have all of the newer Post sets for the 90's and have almost a complete run of the Canadian Jell-O cards from 81 through 2000 including intact boxes of Jell-o and Cereal.

I am curious how you are defining “master set.” In 61 for example, is that all the cards from the company and 1 of each available from boxes, or one of each player from each combo of boxes? E.g. Ryne Duren 1 each from Grape-Nuts Flakes, Post Toasties, and Raisin Bran?
I have found these interesting for years, and have 61,62, and 63 Post baseball smaller definition master sets.

Normally the master set would include printed variations like Frank Robinson (with or without red stripes on cap), the Minnesota vs. Minneapolis printings, and some would even consider the cut from box differently from the perforated sheets. Even the ones that have different colored stat boxes (Koufax?) and birthdates.

I don't think full boxes with one of each card is what they're talking about.

Thanks, I realize that the definition of a master set is a little foggy, and that there are serious collectors (like Dan Mabey) who are pursuing true master sets. That is why I asked him for his definition.

My definition of a true master set would be the same as Dan's, a copy of each card from each of the available products. I originally just collected the image cropping variations, as well as the other variations, before realizing I was realistically close to being able to complete the "master" sets for 61-62 Post sets. The 63 Post/Jell-O sets and the 62 Post Candian I am working to complete just the 1-200 basic set.

Default Master Sets

A master set consists of a card for each player from each box that they were on, for example: Gene Woodling is on 4 boxes in the 1962 set.

Grape Nut Flakes 12oz
Top 3 10oz
Oat Flakes 15oz
SC 9oz

The Top 3 and Oat Flakes cards are very similar and the scan may not show it but his face is a slightly darker reddish tint as well as his hands.

Michael, is Dan Mabey among the "we"? I seem to recall him making a plea on here for research material on the magnificent 1962 JELL-O set in preparation for a book. I for one am very interested in buying his book. In fact, I have a few morsels to contribute if Dan is interested. Would you happen to know how to reach Mr. Mabey? Thanks for your help in advance.
