Now if you're a regular to this blog, then I'm sure you know my infatuation with Kellogg's lenticular cards. I've professed my love for them on numerous occasions. Anyways a few days ago, I started thinking about which Kellogg's cereals I enjoy the most and surprisingly... I couldn't think of a single one I buy on a regular basis.
Do I enjoy Frosted Flakes? Sure. But if I'm going to buy something sugary, it's going to be Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which is made by General Mills. General Mills also produces Cheerios, which has been a household staple of mine for decades. The only other cereal that I'll buy every once in awhile is Life. That's produced by Quaker Oats.
I guess it's a good thing that we're not required to collect cereal oddball issues based on the cereal that we actually consume. If that were the case, I wouldn't have purchased this 1970 Kellogg's Clemente for my collection:
This card has been on my wantlist for years. 1970 Kellogg's is by far my favorite set Kellogg's design. It's as if the 1964 Topps Giants and 1968 Topps 3D hooked up and had a baby. It's beautiful.
As for Clemente... do I really need to explain why I targeted him? The guy is a hero.
His legacy was built on a hall of fame career, but personally I admire him more for his charity work and selfless contributions to society. Athletes have never been my role models, but if I were forced to pick one, Clemente would be on a very short list of names.
Well that's it for today. Here are your questions of the day...
What's you favorite cereal?
Did you look up to any athletes growing up? If so who and why?
Happy Thursday and sayonara!
