1952 Wheaties Bob Feller
Perfectly cut from the back of the box. I think this might be my first vintage card of ol' Rapid Robert. Back in the '30s Wheaties often printed sports related cards on the back of their ceral boxes to promote sales. They brought back the tradition in the '50s and the 1952 set was the last appearance of the cut out cards. The set was made up of players from many different sports and there are 10 baseball subjects:
Breakfast of champions, indeed. Each card has a portrait version like this one and an action version for twenty cards total. The line art on these is really nice, the scan doesn't do it justice. So some kid got a little happy with the scissors. He was probably just exited to get a Bob Feller card. The price: 3 bucks.
1961 Topps Stamps
I'm going to be brief with this one because the only reason I bought it is because Topps is doing an insert set based on these original '61 inserts and I wanted to have one to show off for a later post. So, uh, I'll write about it then.
