Default Box design cards

I like to collect box design cards that are still on the boxes.I have assembled a fairly extensive and diverse collection and will post pictures of some tomorrow.

But for now members, please post photos of your similarly issued cards and boxes. I'm eager to learn what else is out there. Many thanks, Craig.

These progressive proofs and print error Wade Boggs cards are off the side of O-PEE-CHEE wax boxes.

Default Box Design ?

Not sure what that term refers to. I have collected all the Topps box top card sets listed in SCD ( usually in panels cut from the boxes but sometimes singles as well. I do not collect boxes). But since you seem to indicate the thread should have been in pre 1980, not sure what you are referring to. I guess your scans will answer my question. Here is one difference between a box card and regular issue card

I always tried to cut off the cards from cereal boxes, card boxes and other items, even if they were not 100% complete. Not sure if that is what is meant, as I am thinking more about the boxes that actually had cords on them to cut out (Jello, Transogram, Kelloggs, as well as the later 80s Topps/Fleer/Donruss/Score box bottom and side panel cards. Here are a few of my favorite non-card clippings…thought i had the 80 Kellogg cereal box single as well, but must not have scanned it. Of course the Garvey hostess minis are not that hard to find given it was on many of the boxes and it seems many were saved.

Default Corrected Term

Sorry Al and others for my poor choice of term yesterday in my first post. It does not reflect accurately the cards I collect. "Cards on boxes" would have been a better choice of term. Would still like to see examples from others with similar card/boxes. Following are some examples from my collection.

Thanks,
Craig

Default A sincere thank you

A sincere thank you, Craig, for taking the time, trouble, and so forth to upload photos of your passion. Not only is "card on boxes" a very worthwhile thread, you have obviously collected some dynamite gems from among the sport cards printed as part of the box packaging. I'm computer-illiterate when it comes to these things, and I tried to have my son help me upload the cover of my forthcoming book on a CD regarding postwar regional / food issues.

Sadly, the image was of such massive bits (over 5 times the limit for this forum); however, on one's computer screen the CD book images display beautifully! You would have noticed a mate of your 1962 JELL-Os---Mickey Mantle. Nuts! Oh well, I tried. I will calm myself by remembering the soothing end of their commercials at the time: "J-E-L-L-O".

Thanks again; hope you get more responses. These have been good. I can't understand why my book cover would be that many bits over the limit. --Brian Powell

Just a memory, Craig, but worthwhile and it speaks volumes of the deep undercurrent desire for regional / food issues. A hockey collector was offering $7000 well over 10 years ago if anyone had a 1950 Royal Pudding box with a free hockey card prize to cut out on the box back---that of legendary Gordie Howe. Compared to the value of Gordie's vaunted Parkhurst rookie at the time, the Royal Pudding Gordie Howe was a king-sized ruby, whereas the Parkie was a nice but cheap citrine. He wanted that regional Howe rarity something awful. I don't know if he ever got it, but he sure made his desire loud and clear. ---Brian Powell

For those that don't know, I am a Cardinals team set collector. I have over 20 albums full of team sets from 1948 to present.

A couple of weeks ago, on an empty 1988 Topps wax box that I was about to throw away, I noticed a 1988 Topps Todd Worrell on the lid. Well, it wasn't a full card. It was a partial card hidden behind Don Mattingly. So, before throwing it away and after cutting the cards off of the bottom, I cut out the partial Todd Worrell card. It now resides on my pre-1990 miscellaneous Cardinals team set album.

Here is a picture, alongside a regular 1988 Topps Todd Worrell. Also, below is a Google image of a full box so you can see what I saw before I cut it out.

That is true dedication there.

I'd probably do the same and have, but I'd at least need to have it be more than 50% of the original item and show the players face. I'm afraid the arm wouldn't cut it in my collection.

Back when you could find some neat national and regional food issue cards on products. Macaroni, crackers, peanut butter, cereal, etc.

Default Craig, here's my 1962 JELL-O Mickey Mantle

Craig, my son came to the rescue and he figured out how to upload the 1962 JELL-O Mickey Mantle complete unfolded box photo taken directly from my CD book. This should add nicely to the thread.

In this instance, don't think outside the box when they're as nice as these have been. ---Brian Powell

Brian, that is truly an exceptional piece. And, it makes me want some Jello.
