Kellogg's Baseball Cards will be the primary emphasis of this blog. I will also talk about 3-D football, basketball and hockey cards and other related cards. Kelloggs (or Kellogs) cards have been an interest of mine since my days munching on Frosted Flakes.

Pete Rose Isn't Standing With Willie Mays or Denny McLain On This Day
On this day in 1989 Pete Rose met with MLB Commissioner Peter Ueberroth and his successor Bart Giamatti to discuss Rose's gambling issues. As you know, Rose ended up getting a lifetime ban from baseball.
McLain's suspension was for three months.
Mays and Mickey Mantle were banned from baseball for working for casinos. In one of his first acts as commissioner Ueberroth re-instated both players.
Were other players banned for ties to gambling? Sure, but did any of them get a Kellogg's card?
