  • Any idea what Wheaties boxes with Ruth & Gehrig may go for?

    Someone I know had put away some items he'd had, which were separate boxes of Wheaties in some Collectors Edition entitled "60 Years of Sports Heritage".

    The box has been well-preserved in "like new" condition and the cereal is not crushed inside.

    Here is a scan of one, as attached below. Thanks.

    Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

        So in other words, not much? My friend says it's about 16 years old and well-preserved.

          I would guess it's no older than 14 years old

            Seriously, the boxes with players like Ruth, Gehrig, Clemente (currently), and Jackie Robinson were very well mass produced. And I'm sure a lot of people saved them like your friend, Matt. (I have in the past.)
