Kellogg's Cereal Box Dream #22 - 1971 Wasn't A Great Year For Me and Frosted Flakes

I didn't get a lot of Kellogg's cards in 1971.  I remember getting Glenn Beckert and a few others but none of the big stars - Clemente, Mays or my favorite - Billy Williams.  I had better luck in 1973 and 1974.

The Tommie Agee card is more along the lines of what I pulled from cereal boxes in 1971.  

1971 Kellogg's Tommie Agee #46

1971 Rating                    -- 4  comment -- not a great player and a Met.  Yuk!

2016 Rating                    -- 7  comment --   These cards rarely look nice, so getting any one of                                                   them out of a box would be great.  

Agee made a few great plays in the outfield for the 1969 Mets who won the World Series.  A few years earlier he was the AL Rookie of the Year for the White Sox.

He only played until 1973 so I mostly remember him as a injured, older player.  His last Topps card showed him as a Dodger, but he got released before opening day and never played for the Dodgers.
