Here are Those #1 Picks Who Appeared on a Kellogg's Baseball Card

The first June Amateur Draft was held in 1965.  Rick Monday, one of my favorite Cubs, was selected first by the Athletics.  Lots of big names were drafted first.  There was lots of talk this year about Kris Bryant being selected second because he's had more success than the player drafted ahead of him - Mark Appel.

Here are the overall first picks from this draft along with the team that drafted them and the year(s) they appeared on a Kellogg's card

1965  Rick Monday (Athletics) -- 1971, 1974, 1979 (three different teams)
1967 Ron Blomberg (Yankees) -- 1974
1969 Jeff Burroughs (Senators - now Rangers) -- 1974, 1975, 1978, 1979
1974 Bill Almon (Padres) -- 1979
1976 Floyd Bannister (Astros) -- 1983
1977 Harold Baines (White Sox) -- Baines
1978 Bob Horner (Braves) -- 1981, 1982, 1983

Don't confuse 1972 #1 pick Dave Roberts with Dave Roberts who was a Padre from 1968 - 1971 and appeared on a Kellogg's card in 1972 in a Padres uniform.
