Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Wheaties put out a lot of sports product on their...uh, product, and run from pre-to-post war. These two are the only ones I have. I kinda like them in a trippy sort of purple and orange way, even with that draftsmanlike, hatchhmark, line style. At any rate, I'd love to see others anyone else might have -- whatever year, box panels, et al.<br /><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z26/pspec/Wheaties_52_Williams_port.jpg"> <img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z26/pspec/Wheaties_52_Feller_port.jpg"><br />

Posted By: <b>Gilbert Maines</b><p>I too enjoy these sets, and have several examples, which I would post if I could. But instead of that, you may enjoy the sets overview offered by Old Cardboard:<br /> &lt;a href="<a href="http://www.oldcardboard.com/f/cereals/wheaties/wheaties-gal.asp" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://www.oldcardboard.com/f/cereals/wheaties/wheaties-gal.asp</a>" <br />It is far from complete, but it does show many varieties.<br /><br />The cards which I have include a Series 1 Gehrig, a recent issue 8 oz. Pete Rose, Series 9 DiMaggio and Hubbell, and a 1951 Musial - which is a bit like the cards which you posted, but a little bigger and square.

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Stunning stuff!<br />Bob, it looks like those boxes have never been folded. Where this kind of stuff comes from is beyond me -- love it.

Posted By: <b>Bob</b><p>Paul,<br /><br />They haven't. I think these are easier to find unfolded and near mint than actually used for cereal. There must have been a find of them at some point.<br /><br />Bob

Posted By: <b>Gilbert Maines</b><p>My '51 Musial is no longer attached to the box, but through some stroke of luck, the kid chose to not remove the ad from the bottom when he cut it. I can't say the same for my Series 1, however.<br /><br />But PSA grades them as 10s with the ads removed, so I guess that my preference (and the one kid's)is incorrect.
