Nick has his Dime Box Frankenset posts. The Snorting Bull takes the time to list of his favorite sets in his Friday Five series. The Junior Junkie has some of the coolest wallet card photographs around... and he features them on his Wallet Card Wednesday posts. And of course there's the long running Awesome Night Card series published on the four-time Blog of the Year... Night Owl Cards.
Unfortunately... one of my personal favorites... Nacho Grande's Better Know a Blogger came to an end this weekend. The series featured a collection of interviews with fellow bloggers and gave us an opportunity to get an in-depth look at what people collect, their thoughts on the hobby, as well as other non-hobby related topics.
Last week, Bubba's Bangin' Batch of Baseball Bits was featured in the series and mentioned that he loved Kellogg's Cracklin' Oat Bran:
The next day... I saw it while walking down the cereal aisle... and decided to give them a chance. You know what? It's delicious. They remind me of miniature Nature Valley Granola Bars... which is one of my favorite snacks.
And if Matt and my word aren't enough... well... they're produced by Kellogg's... the company who inserted the iconic lenticular 3D cards into cereal boxes during the 70's and early 80's. So go out and grab yourself a box... pour yourself a bowl... and enjoy the sweet, crunchy yumminess.
In the meantime, I figured I'd show off one of my personal favorites in terms of Kellogg's cards...
Although I grew up on the 80's sets, my favorite design is the 1970 set. If baseball cards could produce babies, the 1970 set would have the 1964 Topps Giants as their father and the 1968 Topps 3-D as their mother.
I love seeing Reggie repping his 1968 home jersey, while staring into the souls of every collector who owns a copy of this card. Normally I'd rather have an ungraded copy to hold in my hand, but the price was too good to pass up.
Another Kellogg's set I like is their 2006 All-Star Autographs...
Okay... so they're logoless. But for the price, it's worth it. This is one of the few times you'll be able to add a Hank Aaron certified on-card autograph to your collection for under $50. Aikman and Robinson? They typically sell for under $20 each.
The most affordable card in the set is the Yamaguchi...
She's cute. She's an Olympic gold medalist. And since she's a figure skater, logos don't matter.
Okay... it's your turn.
What are some of your favorite blogger series, cereals, and Kellogg's card designs?
Happy Monday and sayonara!
