Basic Features

This was the first major set that Post Cereal Company released, and it was called "baseball star cards" and was printed on the back of different boxes of cereal. The cards were similar in size to those produced by Topps, with all of the player's statistics and photo printed on the front. The reverse of each card remained gray cardboard.
