Rold Gold vs. Kellogg's All-Time Greats - Any Preference?

Does anyone have a preference between the Rold Gold cards from 1970 and the 1972 Kellogg's All-Time Greats?  I keep the Rold Gold cards as if they were Kellogg's cards in my collection.

I've always heard that the Rold Gold cards were more valuable.  I've seen lots of sets that were hand made that contain cards from both sets.

PSA has graded 2,570 Rold Gold cards and 6.061 Kellogg's All-Time Greats.  There are 339 10s that are Rold Gold cards and  1,016 10s that are Kellogg's.  The Rold Gold breakdown of 10s is quite surprising.

Player   # submitted    #10s

Cobb           221            28
Wagner       220            49
Ruth (#14)  214              7
Gehrig        213              9
Ruth (#6)    210             11
Young         196             34
Hornsby      174             31
Collins        171             49
Grove          156             34
Traynor       144             26
Sisler           137             20
Speaker       135             14
Johnson       134             14
McGraw      134               7
Cochrane     111               6

A big portion of the 10s come from just a few of the cards.  I'll need to look at an uncut sheet to see if that caused these numbers.

The 1972 Kellogg's All-Time Greats don't show the same pattern of 10s.  Card #01 of Walter Johnson has the lowest number of 10s with 23.  Cochrane has 37 and all others have at least 49 10s.

I guess the 1970 cards are worth looking for in top condition.  I have lots of nice cards, but I assume that they are all 1972s

  1. I own both sets. Rold Gold has age on its side... whereas Kellogg's has the name. I'll call it a draw.

  2. No preference here. Bought the Kellogg's ATG mail order when it came out . I think I only have the Speaker in Rolf Gold.
