The Breakfast of Champions

In my attic, I have a few random boxes of Yankees stuff from growing up. I literally have nowhere to display it, so in the boxes it sits.

One of the more unique items found in one of the boxes is a mini Wheaties box featuring Lou Gehrig. I know I get this at a discount store at some point in the early 2000s for a few bucks. It's pretty cool, although the clam shell plastic case is just so bulky.

It even has a 24K gold facsimile signature!

What I didn't realize is that the mini cereal box (which is unopened) is actually in a plastic case of its own. So I guess I could free it from the clam shell.
One day, I hope to have a mancave to display these odds and ends, but for now, in the attic it stays.

However, if I'm ever looking for a morning snack to start the day off right, I know just where to look.


  1. If you eat those and drink a Crystal Pepsi you have Youtube gold on your hands.

  2. I really miss cards in cereal boxes. (and other foods too).

    You're finally up in the game

  3. I love finding those forgotten goodies. Cool item

  4. Cool item. I remember these from back in the day. I'm pretty sure I saw one for Tiger Woods at the last mall show I attended. If they made one for any of the teams or players I PC'd, I'd be all over it.
