Posted By: <b>Rich</b><p>These are 1937 Kellogg's Pep cereal stamps pasted in football section of larger album issued for whole set. Single stamps do not have very high value.

Posted By: <b>leon</b><p>I believe they are as Rich says, Kellogs stamps from 1937-1938. They were issued in 4 panels and there are several with a baesball player...including several HOF'ers...I think even Walter Johnson was in the set. The full panel stamps with mid tier HOF'er would go for about $125-$200, I believe....if everyone was sleeping that day instead of bidding you could potentially get a great deal....these go unnoticed in weird categories on ebay sometimes. I thought I had a scan of one but don't.....single stamps of other sports might be $5 ea?

Posted By: <b>Michael Blaisdell</b><p>The individual stamps are all portraits, with the same color background being used for each athlete from the same sport. The issue featured baseball and football players, golf and tennis stars, swimming champions, boxers, race drivers, aviators and horses. The Kellogg company issued the stamps in 1937. There are 24 panels or "sets" and 6 of the stamps are printed on two different panels. Each mini sheet has four stamps and is accompanied by a yellow margin at the top which identifies them as Kellogg's Sports Stamps and the "Set No" in a red circle to the left. The back of the sheet of stamps carries advertising for the set. <br /><br />In addition to giving the basics - four stamps per package, and enumerating the various sports, you're advised that for a box top and 10 cents you can get Kellogg's Album of American Athletes and Games. The album was available by sending the 10 cents and a Pep box top. The front cover of the 12 page album advertised "5 Thrilling Games", and contained pages to glue or stick the stamps in.<br /><br />As Leon said, the complete panels are much more valuable than single stamps. Here is one of the panels with Red Grange.<br /><br /><img src="http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff79/buncerental/1937PepStamps_16.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Rhett Yeakley</b><p>The individual baseball, football and golf (and boxing to a lesser degree) stamps do have value. They are worth more (obviously) as complete panels. <br /><br />The keys to the set:<br />Fopotball-Nagurski, Thorpe, and Grange & Nevers<br />Golfers-Hagen,Sarazen<br />Baseball-Johnson, and several other HOFers<br />Other-Buster Crabbe(Flash Gordon), and several boxers<br /><br />As Leon said several of the lesser known sports can be had for $5-10 each but the major sports cards are worth more than Rich indicates in his post.<br />-Rhett<br /><br /><br /><img src="http://www.starsofthediamond.com/37pepjohnson.JPG"> <img src="http://www.starsofthediamond.com/37pepherman.JPG"> <img src="http://www.starsofthediamond.com/37pepfonseca.JPG"><br />
