Default 1948 Kellogg's Pep

I was looking for a Waterfield card for my collection and this one caught my eye. I'm usually pretty good about controlling impulse purchases, but the owner had two others up and I wound up winning all 3 - I was the only bidder as none were 99 cent auctions. I don't really know anything about this set other than that I now own half the football cards counting the fact that PSA is listing two variations of the Trippi. Does anyone have any of these? Were they distributed in cereal boxes? Was the reverse image Trippi always recognized as a separate card or is that relatively new? Thanks.

Hi John. Yes, I have this set. They were distributed in Kellogg's Pep cereal, a competitor to Wheaties that was discontinued in the 70's. They are part of a much larger multi-sport set but there are only 5 football cards. This wasn't the first time Pep put football "cards" in their cereal boxes as they also distributed the 1937 Kellogg's Pep Sports Stamps that includes 18 football players.

The reverse image has been around and known about for a long time as a variation so that's not something that recently appeared.

A couple interesting notes about these cards:

1. The set includes a pre-rookie card of Lou Groza. If you're doing a run of pre-rookie cards, you need this one

2. Groza and Norm Standlee are AAFC cards! There are not a lot of football cards of players created while they were playing in the AAFC.
