Default Unopened pack question/GAI

Years back, I used to have a small collection of vintage unopened baseball packs. I seem to recall Mark Murphy and others telling me there were NO "grocery cellos" made between 1970-74, and that regular cello packs ended in 1969 Yet, on ebay, I have seen quite a few, w GAI labeling. Is GAI being dishonest here in you guys opinion, or were there actually those packs?

Note: I grew up in this era, and recall buying the large packs in their little boxes from 70-72 in baseball and football, then seeing the "writing on wrapper" cellos beginning in 74, so I personally don't recall these "grocery cellos" in that era.

Check out these threads on the PSA board, they are fake

FYI legit baseball cello packs from 1970 contain 33 cards (30 for FB) and the 1971 cellos contain 30 cards (27/28 for FB I think), John

Thank you sir for the links/info. Ebay should pull them off when they are listed then, but I guess, like the huge numbers of bad autographs on there, that it is sometimes a herculean task.

Two people on ebay were selling those packs, One being GAI graded, one not, and they pleaded semi ignorance when I asked them if they guaranteed the packs being real. Whatever.

The 70 cello came inside a green 33 count box, the 71 and 72 cellos came in blue boxes. John
