I've had little luck finding unopened Kellogg's card lots lately. I also haven't been to a card show in a long time. Flea markets are probably out since I start work early at a golf course.
I did find this Dave Winfield which I needed for my 1977 set.
I don't see a lot of 1977 unopened packs. Most of what I see are from 1978 and 1980. Do any of you see other years frequently?

I'd seen this item for sale for a long time. I finally bought it not really knowing much about it. Here is what the listed stated -
"Original artwork and paste up for the front and back of the 1980 Kelloggs issue, featuring Darrell Porter. Each artwork measures approximately 3.5" x 6.5", much larger than the issued card. Front features what appears to be an original autograph using black marker. The back has several pasted on features such as top and bottom black bars, Raisin Bran logo, Royals logo and XOGRAPH copyright line at the bottom. Unique one-of-kind items."
I've seen a few different items that may reflect different phases of the productions of Kellogg's cards. Does anyone know more about these items or other cards that are part of the production process?
I still need to check to see if there is anything on this card that differs from the actual card produced in the 1980 set.

Recently I thought about the display that could be purchased to hold the entire set of 10 cards. I wondered if it came in two different versions - Corn Flakes (USA) and Frosted Flakes (Canada). Sure enough I found one from Canada on ebay. Check out the picture below.

I've not even had any nice distractions like card shows or flea markets to attend. I also haven't picked up anything interesting online either.
