Wheaties: Van Lingle Mungo
Here is a large (6" x 6 1/4") card of Brooklyn Dodger Van Lingle Mungo. It is from 1936. These can be tough to find in descent condition since a fan would have to cut them out from the back of a Wheaties box. They are fairly inexpensive, but can be tough to track down. This particular style can be very difficult to find with the framed borders intact. Often, kids would cut it down to the photo itself. I had gotten this on eBay several years ago, and, if memory serves me right, I paid just under $30.00 for it. Not bad considering it's in great uncreased condition (a couple of wrinkles notwithstanding). Click on the pic above to enlarge it.
