Below are short bits & pieces on sportscard & baseball trading card collecting. |
Please wander around the website for more info, prices, values & images
on vintage baseball, football, basketball, hockey, sport and non-sports cards.
1971, Kellogg's second and by far scarcest and most valuable set,
contained 75 different players on 2 ¼” by 3 ½” cards.
The cards were plastic coated giving them a 3-D look !!!
The plastic coating also made high grade cards nearly impossible find.
Over time and the elements, most cards would curl making light and heavy
cracks very common.
As opposed to Kellogg's other issues which were available from the company as complete sets,
1971 Kellogg's cards were ONLY available one in each specially marked box of Kellogg's cereal.
The only way to complete your 1971 Kellogg's set was to pester mom to buy, buy, buy more boxes of cereal.
In addition to the 75 different players, numerous scarcer variations exist
with minor differences in the stats on back. In addition, all 75 cards and
some variations are found with 2 different forms of copyright on the back:
XOGRAPH ( 80 total cards)
@1970 XOGRAPH (121 total cards)
The numbers above may not be 100% accurate.
The "toughest" cards appear to be:
# 7 Alou (1970 Oakland NL)
# 28 Wright (Angles Crest Logo)
# 54 Johnson (Angles Crest Logo)
# 64 Fregosi (Angles Crest Logo)
# 70 Osteen (No Number on back)
# 2 Seaver (ERA 2.81)
# 41 Gaston (113 Runs)
# 65 Rose (RBI 485)

1976 Popsicle Football Teams cards checklist & prices
There is one card for each NFL team in the 1976 Popsicle football
card set PLUS a variation of the New York Giants.
The Giants changed logos in 1976, but Popsicle didn't know
so one card shows team's 1975 helmet and the corrected
shows the 1976 helmet.
The cards are like thin plastic credit cards and held up well
as apparently they came one per box of Popsicles.
