Post Cereal turned the world of young fans upside down in 1961 by putting baseball cards on the back of their cereal boxes.


It came from a time when baseball cards weren't investments--just something you  bought at the store--or  cut from the back of a cereal box. 

Post Cereal entered the fray  with its 1960  series, but really got serious in 1961 when the company put together  a 200-card set  that kids when crazy over.  It was the first of a three-year run  for  the cereal maker.

The '61 Post Cereal set is full of variations--and superstars.  It's an attractive issue for those putting together PSA-graded sets according to writer Kevin Putnam.
