    Does anyone remember these? They're a bit before my time. Famous for the Stan Musial card.

    Back in the 1950s there was a company that made pet food called Red Heart (do they still exist today?), that issued three sets of eleven baseball cards that could be ordered via mail.

    Caught in the middle of some stiff competition between Bowman and Topps, the Red Heart cards are now known for the STan Musial card in 1954, which is currently one of the more sought after cards of any series from the 50s.

    Saw one here on eBay listed for a couple hundred bucks.


    Anyone collect these?

    I've seen them before...I have always thought they were a neat set. I put them in the same category (in my head) with the Post Cereal cards of the early 1960s. Not really an oddball set, but not a mainstream set either.

    But, anywhere you can find Stan Musial is a good place to be. Being a Mickey Mantle collector...I'd personally like to track down a Mantle at some point.
