Today, retired greats are common in a lot of sets. But back in the early 1970s, it was something a little different. A few sets existed here and there, like a handful of the early Fleer baseball sets, but they were the exception. Perhaps that's what makes 1972 Kellogg's All-Time Baseball Greats so interesting.

A spin-off of sorts from the MLB sets the cereal producer was releasing at the time, 1972 Kellogg's All-Time Baseball Greats has a small checklist of just 15 cards. But what a checklist it is. All 14 players in the set (Babe Ruth appears on two cards) are Hall of Famers.

Like Kellogg's other sets from the 1970s, this one brings 3-D images. Considering how far the technology has come, they still look very good today. They're smaller than traditional cards, measuring 2 1/4" by 3 1/2". A small white border gives way to a starred blue inner border. The player's name is in a yellow ribbon along the bottom. A yellow shield at the top of the card notes their place as a great.

Card backs squeeze a lot of info onto them. Besides a small photo,there are two sections of text. The first is a brief bio. The body of the card has a writeup of career achievements and highlights along with some stats.

Because of the material used to produced the cards, 1972 Kellogg's All-Time Baseball Greats are prone to cracking. This is common for all Kellogg's sets from that period. However, if the plastic manages to stay in tact, these cards don't have a lot of other condition issues.

One might think that the strong checklist, unique theme (for the time) and cereal box distribution might make 1972 Kellogg's All-Time Baseball Greats cards pricey. It couldn't be more opposite. Cards are extremely reasonably priced, even graded. The small checklist also makes it a relatively easy set to build.

Ryan's collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.
