1971 Kellogg's Baseball

By Patrick Mondout

Kellogg's produced their second set of 75 3D baseball cards for the 1971 season. Once again Carl Yastrzemski was notable by his absence. If anyone knows why, please use the "Share Your Memories" link below to let us all know.

The previous year, collectors that were buying boxes of the cereals to complete the sets were caught by surprise when Kellogg's made a quantity of the cards available to hobby dealers at the end of the season. Collector's who held back in 1971 waiting for the same thing to happen were in for another surprise. No such deal happened. Not surprisingly, this set is the hardest to find and most valuable of the Kellogg's 3D card sets. A brief description of this set is here and background on the Kellogg's cards is here.

The early Kellogg's sets were plagued with statistical errors that were corrected in later printings - and sometimes corrected again... and again! In fact, there are no fewer than four versions of the Jim Fregosi card. All of the California Angels in this set can be found with either an Angels logo or a California state logo. In the case of 1971 Kellogg's, a complete standard set is 75 cards, but a complete master set - including all the variations - adds 26 for a total of 101. Here's a checklist of 1971 Kellogg's 3D cards.

The backs of the cards have a second photo of the player, a feature that Topps introduced in 1971 as well.
