Default Question

Hi Kirk. Kim Marks here. Been a long time. I see you have gotten back into the Post Cereal football since we last were in contact many years ago. Great to see. I have a question for you if I might. Throughout this thread of posts, you reference the Unitas card to be an Alpha Bits individual card coming from Treat Paks. While I totally agree it is an Alpha Bits individual card, I was wondering how you are able to say it came from the six package variety Treat Paks as opposed to a 10 cereal variety package 10 Treys? For me, while probably pushing 80 total cards of the 6 players of the individual alpha bit cards and never seen any difference in the cropping, blue around the outside covering the right two thirds of the card, or other telltale identification markings, I was hopeful you could tell me how you knew that information. I have the complete 10 Trey package which I showed you a number of years ago. So I know those ABI cards exist. But I've never heard anyone say with certainty cards existed on Treat Paks in that issue, and if they did it has always seems certain to me that they were exactly the same cards and you could not tell them apart. So any light you can shed would be very appreciated. If you still live in the area that you used to, maybe we can get together again sometime. Have some interesting new material related to post cereal football that I've acquired in the 15 years or whatever it's been since those meetings at your house.

Wow, just WOW! Although I've had my Post set started for a while, I am just now beginning to see uncut panels and flattened cereal boxes that have survived all these years. But it's simply amazing that a complete package like that has survived intact. It had to have been in the back room of a grocery store all that time.
This picture and a couple of the earlier ones with this showcase of cards is phenomenal to me. Not just the Post items but all the other cool things in the case as well, like the Bazooka cards and that really neat Gridiron Greats blotter in the upper left.

No more awesome photo posts of trinkets from this set!? What gives?

A while back I bought a complete back panel on eBay. They do show up every once in long while. At the time, I think I paid around $100 for it. Ever since then, when I've seen one, and depending what stars are on the panel, they can reach $300 easy. I still fantasize about a complete set on uncut back panels. Doable...maybe, but I'm not a rich man.

One thing I've always wondered:
Is it possible to collect a complete, basic, set on uncut panels, without duplicating any cards?

The expert(s) can chime in here, but I'm pretty sure the answer to that is no.

This is a great thread; thanks for posting!

Perhaps I am tired but I seem to have missed this: I get that there are cards on the big packages of cereal and on the tray that held the single servings. Were there cards on the single serving boxes too?

Not sure, but I doubt it. I've never seen one. I've managed to save images of all the box panels I've seen. Maybe I should post a couple! There are different sized boxes that had less than the standard seven cards on them. I know of 3-card, 4-card, 5-card, and 6-card back panels. The six card panel I've seen may have been with the top (or 7th card) and header chopped off though, so I can't confirm that one.

Edit: Correction...there are 6-card box panels, confirmed.

Here's a couple of the smaller, and harder to find back panels. The first one with three cards is from a Grape Nuts box I believe.

It was late in the fall of 1962. My family and I lived in Skokie, Illinois. I was in third grade, and struggling mightily to comprehend English grammar.

My teacher, Miss Lewis, was a young, very attractive woman, and very nice. Patient. All of us kids loved her.

I just couldn't seem to understand breaking the English language down. Among many of the vicissitudes, the participles were too much for this simpleton, and I was falling apart with self-doubt. Moreover, I was very shy, and had a speech impediment. My mother and father even hired Miss Lewis to tutor me one evening a week.

Well, early one afternoon she called me up to her desk. She showed me the back of a box of Post Cereal. There before me were 7 beautiful Post football cards, of players I had never seen. She said something to the effect that if I was able to complete the current challenging English assignment, I could have the panel!

You better believe I worked hard and got the assignment done. True to her word, she presented me with the panel. I don't remember any of the other boys saying anything to me about the matter, and I sure didn't want to incur their wrath or jealousy. We were a close bunch though, and they knew I was having great difficulty with English grammar.

I was so touched she thought that much of me to give me a whole panel of Post Cereal football cards---none of them familiar to me! In retrospect, I imagine she took good care of herself and ate a healthier cereal, such as a large box of Post Grape Nuts Flakes. No kid with good taste wanted THAT! Which, of course, explains why I had never seen those Post football stars. Grape Nuts Flakes was an adult variety of breakfast cereal consumed by the geriatric set, and the few health nuts of the time. Being a low percentage of their cereal-consuming population, Post did not print very many boxes of the larger size Grape Nuts Flakes.

Throughout the Post baseball and football trading card promotions, a decent number of the short prints could be found on the Grape Nuts Flakes boxes. When I went cereal hunting while my Mom grocery shopped, I never thought to look at the back of those boxes. It never occurred to me as my mind was on Alpha-Bits, Sugar Crisp, and a couple others. Besides, on top of that, grocers stocked them on the top shelf, where I could not as yet reach.

I still wound up having to repeat third grade, which really was good for me. Most of my Post football cards were tossed during the move our family made in '64. Fortunately, my Post baseball cards were saved.

I have a very tender and special place in my heart for Miss Lewis. Never will I forget her kindness and thoughtfulness to me. The cards I may not have, but the memory, this time, is even more precious. A famous quote of Maya Angelou comes to my mind when I remember dear Miss Lewis:

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

Here is a case where I cherish what she did, how that made me feel, and the smile and genuine look of kindness on her face. ---Brian Powell

What are the greenish looking things that say "Football Album" on them? Are those something used to keep the cards in, or is that what was mailed in to receive cards?

Default 6-card Post Cereal Panel, Meredith

Was anyone watching the three 6-card panels that ended tonight? I was hoping to win the one with Meredith but it was just out of my reach.

I saw several panels end a couple week ago, and was in awe at what they ended at. Never looked at them before, so I am sure it was just that I am unfamiliar with them. I had a guy at a local show about a month ago, offer me a panel with Unitas on it. He wanted $175 for it, which I thought was a bit high, until I saw what they go for on ebay. Thinking back, I might should have gotten it. Maybe he'll be at the next show in September.

Last hit came in the mail a couple of days ago from a member of my trading club (OBC). Another SP Cowboy #139 Allen Green. The picture had come apart from the cardboard so I broke out the Elmers glue and solved that. Looks like this card spent some time in a sewer Four left to complete my set………

Guru--

I think I mentioned this card originated from Randy--he probably found it in a corn field.

Elmers fixes pretty much anything.

Wanted to check in and report a hit to my short wantlist I won this three card lot of SP cards on ebay which included #28 Del Shofner which I needed for my set. $9.99 plus $3 to ship and I'm down to needing two more cards the extra tough #93 Dave Baker and #117 Larry Morris.

This is one of the best threads that I have ever read on Net54baseball! Thanks to all contributors.

I had a few of the 1962 Post as a kid, but only two survived. None anywhere close to the condition on those pictured with the razor sharp edges.

This one was signed many years after it's year of issue. Still love the St. Louis Football Cardinals!

Default anyone have a resource for complete back panels?

Love the uncut sheet/back panel! Does anyone have a website that shows the different back panels? I am pretty certain we ate Rick Krinkles and Alphabets in my house during the 1962 season--but would like to match up some of my childhood Post cards with the appropriate cereals.

Many thanks Ken--complete and definitive. Seems we did eat Alphabets and Crispy Critters in my house. But only common backs.....


Another quick question--I have a Pardee with extra thick cardboard as the backing. Was he ever part of a point of sale promotion or other advertising that you are aware of for this set? And if not, do you have any other thoughts other than someone rebacking the paper to a heavier piece of cardboard?

thanks again--great information--that I have printed out for future reference.

Default Pardee Promotional??

You know Peter, have never seen Jack Pardee as part of any promotional material. Paul Hornung is the primary person associated with in store promotions (and media ads) that I have seen. There is the big sign that Mike Blaisdell has posted as part of this thread that had three large cards (Hornung, Unitas, and Kilmer). But have never seen or heard of anything about Pardee being a part of some sort of promotional item. I wonder what you have. Standard card size??

This might be way too much minutia, but a comment on the picture of the sign Mike posted since we are talking promotional material for the 1962 Post Cereal Football set. I too have that promotional sign and until Mike posted a picture of his, was the only one I had ever seen. What was very interesting was that his sign while pretty much the same, was not exactly the same as the one I have. The football player on the bottom is going the opposite direction and the cut of the bottom is not the same. It looks to me that Post produced two different signs that could be displayed back to back (and fit perfectly) for grocery store displays. Just thought I would throw that out as surprised me.

Default Pardee

Ken--It appears the Pardee card has another piece of cardboard attached/glued to the original card. Who knows why, but I can see a clear separation between the original card and the extra/additional cardboard backing.

Never really looked at it that closely--I did pick up another one because I knew there was something funky with thicker version.

thanks again.

After chasing this set for over ten years (and needing just two cards) I completed it at this years National Convention. After walking the aisles for four days, I thought I'd seen everything. Spike (a friend of mine) suggested walking cross ways across the floor, not along the regular walkways, and this proved successful. I started seeing things I had missed all week!
I came across a dealer with a stack of 1962 Post football and of course I asked to see them, and what do you know! #117 Larry Morris priced at $25, and the dealer accepted my offer of $20.

So I paid the dealer and mentioned that I am down to needing just one more card, the short printed number 93 Dave Baker. And to my surprise the dealer says he has one!
The problem is, I am collecting a low grade set, and the dealer pulls out the most beautiful card I have ever seen, it's a BLAZER! But with extra money in my pocket we strike a deal, and my set is complete! I am so excited, and shoot Spike a text so I can show him. After seeing the card, Spike suggests I get the card slabbed and I agree with him. I want to keep this card as nice as possible! Here's a picture of me sitting at the SGC booth with the Dave Baker card ready for submission, cost to have it graded and slabbed was $35 and the card will be ready in one hour.

I didn't know what to expect, I knew the card was nice, but I don't normally purchase better condition cards. I was like an expectant father, pacing the Convention floor, and checking the time every five minutes. This was the longest hour I have spent in a long long time Finally I approach the SGC booth......

And that's the story how I finally completed my set. Of course the slabbed NM card of Dave Baker does not really fit in with the rest of my set. Hole punched, cut out with pinking shears, and stored raw in an 800 count box. I may keep my eyes open for a lower end Dave Baker card and downgrade But then again, this card is pretty sweet!
Larry

I picked up a small stack of '62 Post Football cards today, and discovered #57 has a variation DETROIT LIONS QUARTERBACK red or black asterisk. It's not listed in the Standard Catalog?
