Presented is an extremely rare 1971 Kellogg's set in the unique form of FIVE 15-card uncut sheets. The sheets themselves each measure 6.75 x 18 inches, are labeled "Set A" thru "Set E", with all five sheets professionally framed to a dimension of 42 x 24 inches. Each uncut sheet is a final process sheet with fully printed backs. The 1971 set was the second 3-D set issued by Kellogg's and was produced by Xograph, the company which also produced the very scarce 1968 Topps 3D test issue. The 1971 Kellogg's set is certainly the scarcest and most valuable offering from the company as it was the only year the cards were NOT available through the mail in complete set. Obtaining a complete set via box after box of cereal was certainly a Ruthian achievement! The nature of the plastic used on top of the cards often causes the cards to curl, and if not stored properly, some will eventually crack. However, these card sheets all appear to be NM to NM/MT condition. This is the only 1971 Kellogg's set that we know of in this very rare uncut sheet form, and they likely originate from someone connected to the Xograph printing company or Kellogg's. Loaded with Hall of Famers, all the great players from that era are included with Mays, Rose, Jackson, Clemente, Kaline, Seaver, etc. This is a special opportunity to obtain a complete set of 1971 Kellogg's baseball cards, the most scarce and valuable of all Kellogg's sets, in a tremendous ready to display format.
