1962 Jello Baseball Cards
The 1962 Jello baseball card set shares a lot of similarities with the 1962 Post Cereal set. The 1962 Jello baseball cards share a striking resemblence to the Post set and both share a checklist. One difference however is that the Jello only issued 197 cards instead of 200 - cards numbered 29, 82 and 176 were never issued. Yet, the biggest difference between the two sets and the key to identifying them is that the 1962 Jello set does not have any logos while the Post sets carry a post logo on the cards.
The cards in the 1962 Jello set are grouped according to team: New York Yankees (1-13), Detroit (14-26), Baltimore (27-36), Cleveland (37-45), Chicago White Sox (46-55), Boston (56-64), Washington (65-73), Los Angeles Angels (74-82), Minnesota (83-91), Kansas City (92-100), Los Angeles Dodgers (101-115), Cincinnati (116-130), San Francisco (131-144), Milwaukee (145-157), St. Louis (158-168), Pittsburgh (169-181), Chicago Cubs (182-191), and Philadelphia (192-200).
