1970 Kellogg's

1970 Kellogg's Pittsburgh Pirates

The 1970 Kellogg’s baseball card set consists of 75 cards, each one 2-1/4” by 3-1/2”. The 1970 series marked the debut issue for the Kellogg’s product, which was available as single issues in select brands of cereal or as a complete set via a mail-in offer. These plastic-coated cards were designed to simulate a “3-D” appearance, and each displayed a vivid color likeness of a player with a baseball design at the corner that identified his surname, team affiliation, and position. The design was framed in white. Due to their plastic-coated surfaces, Kellogg's cards were known for easily splitting, cracking, and curling, leaving pristine examples difficult to find.
