1961 Post This was the first major set issued by Post.

The Post Cereal company decided to jump in with both feet and release a full set of "baseball star cards." This was the first major set issued by Post. on the back of such fine products as Alpha-Bits, Post Toasties, and Grape-Nuts. The cards were available on thick cardbox stock, in panel sizes from cereal boxes. Well-cut individual cards measure about 3-1/2" x 2-1/2". All cards are numbered in the upper-left corner. Card fronts have full-color portrait photos of the player, along with biographical information and 1960 and career statistics. Backs are blank.
