1961 Post
Yogi Berra


Here's another one of those Post Cereal cards that was cut off the back of a cereal box.

I really like these old cards and they are good way to get players who would otherwise cost a bundle. Guys like Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Roger Maris, Roberto Clemente and Yogi Berra all appeared on these cards.

I think this card cost me about six bucks.

I wonder if Yogi's cards are becoming more popular as he appears more and more on TV. I bet most kids today think he is that guy who is in all those insurance commercials with that duck, rather than one of the best catchers of all time.

I really like Yogi, I think his contributions to the game are way underestimated.

Up until 5-6 years ago, Post always had something baseball related in or on their cereal boxes. I haven't seen anything in awhile.

As much as I root against the Yanks, I always adored Yogi. He's my favorite Yankee of all time, and not because he refused to appear at the Stadium for so long, after being lied to by Steinie about his status as manager in 1984, I believe.

i agree with John, it is hard not to like good ol' Yogi, even if you can't stand the team he played for.
