These cards are Grrrrrrreat!
Most collectors are familiar with the 3D cards Kelloggs issued in the 1970s, made by the company that eventually became Sportflics. However, the 1973 set is a little different. Can you tell what it is? This is the only non-3D issue made by the Kelloggs Company. This year's set was produced by Visual Panographics, instead of Xograph. I grabbed every one of these cards for about 50 cents each at last weekend's show, and while I already have a sample for my type collection, these cards will fit well in my awards collection.
It looks like Kelloggs bought their images from Topps, as they have the same basic portrait style seen on Topps issues of the time. I still love seeing some of those 1970s jerseys - the font on the Rangers jersey reminds me of a poorly themed old west area in a theme park.
