1970 Kellogg's Packs at 49 Cents Each! That's Way Too Much

Back in 1970 or 1971 when these packs were being sold, I remember a big display of them at our local Kresge storew.  I can picture the display that was immediately inside the door as I walked into the store.  There was no way I was going to buy 6 cards for 49 cents when I could buy an entire Topps rack pack for less.  

I never bought one of the Kellogg's packs and neither did any of my friends.  I did complete my 1971 set after buying many packs at Kresge.

I'm not making much progress trying to get 75 different unopened packs, with each pack showing a different player on the top.  I have packs to trade, but most have a bit of curling.  I'm okay with curled packs and maybe even packs where the top card has a few cracks on it.

It could be worse I guess.  Imagine if I were trying to get Topps rack packs featuring every player.  

Here are the star players that I don't currently have on the top of a 1970 Kellogg's pack - Rose, Sutton,  F. Robinson, G. Perry, B. Robinson, Aparicio, Clemente, Stargell, Santo, Brock, Kaline, Killebrew and Morgan.

A few of these might be impossible, but I might as well have something to search for when I go to the National each year.  Otherwise, I just end up spending money on stuff that I don't really collect.  Searching the show won't cost much because I'm too cheap to pay the big money that will be required at the National for something like this.
