(LOT 467)
Uncirculated 1951 Wheaties Complete Set of Unfolded Boxes (6)

General Mills Wheaties cereal brand relationship with professional sports continues nearly 100 years after the formula was perfected. In 1934, a marriage was consummated once Wheaties featured New York Yankees Lou Gehrig on the front of the box. The practice of depicting the athlete of the "day" continues today. Presented is a complete set (6) of NR-MT to MT condition and unfolded 1951 Wheaties boxes. The set highlights greats from baseball (Feller, Musial, Williams) basketball (Mikan), Football (Lujack) and golf (Snead). The visually, striking colors of this assemblage are undeniable and there appears only the slightest amount of color wear at the bottom of a few along the orange "Breakfast of Champions" tagline. The backs remain clean with no age apparent.
