True to its marketing slogan "Breakfast of Champions", the 1952 Wheaties card series is loaded with big name stars. Start your day off right with this Wheaties complete set of (60). This nostalgic set consists of (30) different multi-sport stars (2) variations, for a set total of (60). Each of the depicted sports figures is seen in a portrait rendition and an action scene. Hand cut from the back of period cereal boxes, this set is split fairly evenly between cards with rounded corners and cards that are cut with straight edges that have some blue background surface on the perimeter. Generally crisp and clean, these nearly seventy year old cards show details in a range of VG-EX to EX-MT, with a few better and a few lesser. 

Highlights are (2) each: Ted Williams, Stan Musial, "Yogi" Berra, Roy Campanella, Ralph Kiner, Phil Rizzuto, Bob Feller, George Mikan, Otto Graham, Doak Walker, Sam Snead and Ben Hogan. 

Balance are (2) each: Alice Bauer, Marlene Bauer, Patty Berg, Bob Davies, Glenn Davis, Ned Day, Charlie Diehl, Tom Fears, Gretchen Fraser, George Kell, Jack Kramer, Bob Lemon, Johnny Lujack, Lloyd Mangrum, Jimmy Patterson, Jim Pollard, "Preacher" Roe and Bob Waterfield.
