CARD LANDED

1936 Wheaties Series 3


Landed it for a good price! Super stoked!

----------

This 1936 Wheaties set features cards measured at 6x 6 ¼ and included 12 cards in the set. 

Usually cut from the back of cereal boxes, it is very rare to come across a card that is well-cut, such as this example above. It does have 3 pin holes in the card, which was not uncommon during the time that is was produced. Kids would routinely pin them to their walls or bulletin boards to give homage to their favorite players.
