(Kellogg's,1945-46) These famous cereal give-away buttons were created by the master creator of premiums for kids, designer Sam Gold. Millions of these 13/16" litho buttons went into post-war cereal boxes issued as five sub-sets of 18 (each sub-set including Superman) over a two year period 1945-1946 so that in the end 86 different buttons comprised a set. Some characters of note include - Blondie and Dagwood, Dick Tracy, Felix the Cat, Flash Gordon, Jiggs, Olive Oyl, Popeye, Little Orphan Annie, Superman, The Phantom, Warbucks and Wimpy. Condition varies with 2 buttons in Very Good Condition, 22 buttons in Fine to Very Fine condition and 62 buttons in Excellent to Near Mint Condition. Overall, a very impressive set.
