Title: General Mills Hand Cut
Size: 2-5/16″ x 2-13/16″
Number in Set: 5
The five cards that make up the 1967 General Mills Hand Cut set came from General Mills cereal boxes. The fronts feature a color player photo within a white border, and the backs are blank and unnumbered.
I’ve read that a full box that showed the Harry Howell card and a checklist of the five cards exists, but I’ve never seen it myself.
PSA has graded 38 of these cards; 6 Beliveau, 11 Howe, 5 Howell, 5 Mikita, and 11 Orr.
The photo on the card pictured below is from Orr’s rookie season in 1966/67 since the Bruins changed their uniforms the following year.
They’re all key with only five cards, but Orr is the most expensive, as the most dominant player in vintage hockey, from a collecting point of view.
