How many of you are old enough to remember the feeling you got when you rushed downstairs in the morning to open up your new box of Kellogg's Frosted Flakes, with one of these outstanding gems inside? There was nothing quite like the feeling of shaking the box around and spilling it everywhere in the quest to see which Major League Baseball superstar was waiting for you inside on the 3-D card!
The Kellogg's 3-D Super Stars series featured the top players in Major League Baseball at the time, on a 3-D styled lenticular baseball card. For the 1970's, this technology was way out there and produced a card like no other at the time. These cards were also loaded with awesome 1970's style sports graphics.
I'll never forget when I pulled this Jim Palmer card out of the box. For some reason, after I found this card waiting for me in my morning cereal, I adopted Jim Palmer as my favorite player at the time and became a big Orioles fan. There was no rhyme or reason as to why this happened, the card just affected me that way! I know I've heard stories of others who had similar experiences.
The Kellogg's 3-D Superstars cards bring back some great childhood memories and will always hold a special place in my sports design history heart.
