Kellogg's Card Numbers - First and Last Card Oddities

When I created the Kellogg's database from my checklist, I noticed something odd.  Since all of the sets are listed together chronologically, I was reminded that Steve Carlton is the last card in the 1977 set and the first card in the 1978 set.

That has not happened with any other Kellogg's cards, but it probably has occurred in a Topps set.  Rod Carew, the most often occurring player on a Kellogg's card appeared as card #60 in 1980 and card #1 in 1983.  He is the only player to be on the first and last cards in a Kellogg's set.

George Foster appeared as card #1 in both 1977 and 1981.  No one else received that honor more than once.
