The 1952 Wheaties All Famous Champions series was a group of 60 trade cards that came on the back and side panels of Wheaties boxes (10 cards per box). The set consists of a total of 30 athletes from basketball, baseball, football, golf, and tennis. However, our interest is in the 3 basketball players that are included in the set - George Mikan (Minneapolis Lakers center), Bob Davies (Rochester Royals forward), and Jim Pollard (Minneapolis Lakers forward). Each player has a portrait and an in-action card measuring approximately 2” by 2-3/4” in dimension, with rounded corners and blank backs. These hand-cut cards are probably more desirable cut out with the blue borders showing. However, there are many examples where the cards are cut out along the white outline area. These cards are another great example of the type of card grading companies should stay away from. It's way too subjective. There are great vintage cards that are common and found at a reasonable price.
