Interesting disassembled 8 oz box of Kellogg's Corn Flakes, advertising "3-D" baseball cards, the company's first season issuing baseball cards.  Advertising "one of 75 different, autographed" cards, the illustration pictures cards of Brooks Robinson (HOF), Jimmy Wynn, Tommy Harper, Pete Rose, and of course, our pal Rico Petrocelli. Presenting as EX, the box has been disassembled and stores flat, an 8" x 13" presentation.  Some glue remnants are evident in the areas where the box was formerly attached, and the box front does have a razor slice across the bottom, which does not interfere with the presentation.  Interestingly, the box is stamped with a price of $0.22 for an 8-ounce box.  Our local grocery store currently offers 12-ounce boxes for $6.39.
