The 1961 Post baseball card set consist of 200 cards that measure approximately 2 1/2" x 3 1/2".  This was the first major set issued by Post. The cards were available on thick card box stock, singly, or in various panel sizes from cereal boxes (BOX). They were also made available in team sheets, printed on thinner cardboard stock, directly from the Post Cereal Company (COM). It is difficult to differentiate the COM cards from the BOX cards; the thickness of the card stock is the best indicator. There was also an album produced by Post to hold the cards
