If you have any interest in this set, this book is a MUST.

I only own a couple of these cards, which I inherited from my dad, but I've always liked them, and have enjoyed reading the threads on here about them. I received my copy of the book yesterday, and am very impressed with it. It has inspired me to go after the Steelers in the set.

Thank you Ken for such a great book!

Starting working on this set about 3 years ago. Was very lucky to come across a lot with the baker (black), title, Ditka, #93 and 3 other sp's along with 50 or so commons for a buy it now price. Then connected with a dealer in Ohio to get most of the rest. Still need to upgrade a few, but this set has a great look and feel to it. More than the std Fleer and topps issues of that era. So many print variations that are challenging. Great set, will look to buy the book.

Default Print Variations

Glad you like the set. Three weeks with a giant dent in collecting the set. Nice.

You are right on the many print variations. There are a ton, and in fact, those (and the red and black asterisk cards of Ninowski and Baker) are all caused by the same player being printed on multiple boxes of cereal. This causes color, cropping, packaging adhesive markings differences, or other things that allow identification of which cereal box and size a player's card comes from. I try to layout in the book the various differences of each version of all players to allow someone to identify which cereal box specific cards came from. Have a great day.

My copy just arrived at my door a while ago. Thumbed thru it on my break from work and can't wait to dive into it! Looks like an amazing read if not overwhelming!!! As I've said before, the research involved must have been daunting but your efforts are greatly appreciated. My next questions would be, 1. When does your book on 62 Jell-O baseball come out?
2. When I get a second copy, where can I send it to have it signed??

Thanks for all your hard work, Ken and for the work that all the others contributed as well!

Tim

Not sure if anyone besides me cares, but there is also a 1962 (and 1963) Post CFL set. Toughie to put together in nice condition, especially the '62 set. I believe the '62 CFL set was only available on the back of boxes, while the 1963 set was available as a mail in.

Default Post CFL Sets

Bob,

You are correct. The 62 set was available only on boxes. There are a dozen or so cards that are extremely tough to get. The 63 set was available through a mail in offer. The cards from the mail in, can be identified by their crisp white borders. There was an album available in which to paste the cards. The album exists in both French and English.

It should be noted that both sets have variations that if collected would make a "Master" set possible. 10 variations in the 62 set. 20 in the 63.
