Nice Discussion of Kellogg's Variations

Do you collect or care about Kellogg's variations?

Are you looking for any Kellogg's variations?  I need a bunch of 1971s and a few 1979s.

There are a few different types of variations.  

1.  Team logos

2.  Statistics

3.  Text write-ups

4.  Trademark and related

5.  Picture on the back

6.  Missing card number

Did I miss any types of errors?

Great Reading - 1968 Topps 3-D

Check out this thread on Net54 and the links.  There is lots of details on the 1968 Topps 3-D cards.  I had no idea that there were so many variations.

Does Anyone Else Have Kellogg's Proof Cards?

I got these in the mail today.

These are from the Benanti collection.  Does anyone else have any cards from this collection?  I picked up a few over the last 10 years.  Beckett auctioned them off years ago and shared information about where these cards originated.

Does anyone have other Kellogg's Proof cards?  Do you know the history behind the cards?

I'll Be Back Soon

School starts next week and it should make me less busy than I am now.  I've got a few new things to talk about.  Stay tuned.

Are Card Shows Back?

There allegedly was a card show in suburban Chicago last weekend.  Did it happen?  Did anyone attend it?  How did it differ from shows in the winter?

Sadly, I was near the show, but I was working.

1978 Eddie Murray Discussion

I found some of these comments about Eddie Murray's 1978 cards worth thinking about.

What do you think about this?

I Finally FInished a Kellogg's Set

It has been a long time since I finished a Kellogg's set.  This was a small set.

Takashi Saito was the last card I needed for the 2008 set from Japan.  I have the cards in the original wrappers.  I have extras of some of the cards if anyone would like to trade.  My list of needs from the Japanese sets are shown on the right side of the blog.  I have not been able to find cards that have been taken from the wrappers. 

Saito was the only player in the set that I knew nothing about.  He played seven years in the majors (2006 - 2012) and was an all-star.  He recorded 84 saves along with 21 wins.

He began pitching in Japan in 1992 and didn't stop until after the 2015 season when he was 45 years old.
