Heartbreaking Damage: How Not To Cut A Cereal Box

**In this series we highlight the cards that may have seen better days but the rough times these cards have seen have made them infinitely more interesting.**

This card comes from a discount bin at the last Topeka card show I went to I think in April...I always flunk my "which series of Post cards is this card from" test and I chocked a little bit when it turned out to be from 1962.  The book value of this card is $120 and with every snip of the scissors that cut this card out of the Post cereal box that value went down, down, down.  Still, it's my favorite McCovey card that I own.
