Title: Wheaties Stamps
Size: 2 9/16″ by 2 3/4″
Number in Set: 50
The 50 1964 Wheaties stamps and their associated Wheaties Major League All-Star Baseball Player Stamp Album were part of a mail-in offer. Fifty cents and a certificate from a Wheaties box was all it took.
The unnumbered stamps show a color portrait of the player with a facsimile autograph within a white border. As stamps, the backs are blank.
The 8-3/8″ by 11″ album has dedicated pages to affix the 25 All-Stars from each league of the 1963 All-Star game alongside their biographies. It also features details on the All-Star game, diagrams of major league ballparks, team logos, some baseball history, the HOF roster, and World Series winners.
The key cards are Roberto Clemente, Willie Mays, and Hank Aaron
