1962 Post Phillies

I'm kicking off Gallery Week with one of the oldest oddball team sets in my collection.  These cards are miscut and there are a few creases, but I'm still happy to have them.  By the time kids were cutting these cards off boxes of cereal, Robin Roberts was an ex-Phillie.  The future Hall of Famer was sold to the Yankees in October 1961.  Also, the Pancho Herrera card could serve as his final tribute, as he played his last year in the Majors in 1961 and he did not appear in the 1962 Topps set.

Awesome! I've never seen this many Post cards from one team in one place before.

Looking forward to the rest of the gallery...

Awesome collection. I have been wanting to build the Yankee set for a while now. This post may have inspired me to start.

These are great cards. I remember seeing these on cereal and jello boxes as a kid, but never cut them out, since I didn't start collecting baseball cards until several years later.

In the past few years, I've accumulated several Phillies from the '62 and '63 sets (US and Canadian versions).

This is the only vintage Post Phillies team set I've been able to complete to date. I'm still working on the others . . .
