1970 Kellogg's Baseball Cards

1970 Kellogg’s Baseball Cards

Product Details

User Rating:

1970 Kellogg's Baseball is an important issue as far as oddball releases go. It is the first full baseball card set released by the cereal maker.

They would continue to do so on an annual basis for more than a decade, creating some of the hobby's most distinct cards in the process.

1970 Kellogg's Baseball Set Details

1970 Kellogg's Baseball is most notable for its 3-D look. They feature a player photo in the foreground. A ballpark background is layered behind. Although the technology was fairly primitive, it is very effective. Card fronts have a baseball icon at the top with the player's last name, team and position. A facsimile signature is on the bottom part of the card. Like most Kellogg's baseball cards, these are smaller than standard-sized baseball cards, measuring 2 1/4" by 3 1/2".

Card backs offer a ton of info, especially when you consider the smaller dimensions. Arranged horizontally, tops have vital player info as well as logos for both the MLBPA and MLB. The bottom adds complete career stats and a short bio.

1970 Kellogg's Baseball has a 75-card checklist. While there are a lot of common players, the oddball set also has several Hall of Famers. Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente, Pete Rose and Ernie Banks are among the highlights. The set also has Reggie Jackson, which is a second-year card.

Unfortunately, 1970 Kellogg's Baseball cards are prone to damage. Because of their thickness, corners and edges are normally okay. However, the plastic often curled if not stored properly. This resulted in lots of cards cracking. Cracked cards are much less desirable to most collectors and sell for a lot less.

1970 Kellogg's Baseball cards came in boxes of cereal. A mail-away offer was also available.

The 1970 Kelloggs set is a rather attractive set. Although 1972 was the first year that I collected baseball cards, I did not add any cards from the 1970 Kelloggs set until 1976, when a friend of mine in high school, who also collected baseball cards, traded me his duplicate card of 1970 Kelloggs Tom Haller, and that got me started in the 1970 Kelloggs set. I was able to add some more cards from this set over the years. Finally, I started buying baseball cards on eBay earlier this year (Summer 2022). I was able to put together the complete set of the 1970 Kelloggs set (all 75 cards), thanks to eBay.


why doesn’t Aaron appear on any kelloggs cards from 70-76?
