Set Project: 1983 Kellogg's

I have done a few set projects over the years, never anything with an "oddball" set though.  I am not even sure why some of the cereal cards from the 1970s and 1980s are given that classification.  "Oddball" makes it seem like they have second rate photography, poor design, or the logos are airbrushed off of the uniforms.

I have some interest in putting together a bunch of the different Kellogg's sets at some point, but to start out, I am going to go with one of the easier ones to assemble.  Still great looking cards though....

The 1983 set was the last year that Kellogg's put out a baseball card set.  Definitely the end of an era.  There are 60 cards in the set and I already own 9 of these.  Bascially the entire Cardinals team set along with a few players who had some sort of connection with the team, like Jack Clark and Don Baylor. 

I am going to post a checklist of what I need in a bit on the "Projects In Progress" tab at the top of the page.  I am hoping that I can fill most of this checklist with a little bit of time on COMC and maybe some hunting at a card show. 

I am starting out with 15% of the set, hoping to finish this in two months.
