Vintage mix

 I got these cards recently in a trade with Night Owl. Three 60's set needs here. The most interesting part is the P-OF designation for Mel Queen. An outfielder who converted to pitching, Queen was the last player to spend significant major league time at each position until Rick Ankiel, though in the 1950s and 1960s there were several other players who went similar position changes at the big league level.

Some bigger star power in these food oddballs. Most Hostess sets look pretty much alike but the '76 set stands out for the bicentennial design. That Stottlemyre Kelloggs card is a great one too.
