Cereal Box Collecting

I want to thank everyone for the response to The Cereal Box Price Guide so far. The enthusiasm for this new project has been very gratifying. I think we are approaching the halfway point with The Cereal Box Price Guide, we're not there yet but it is within sight. I measure success in views n there are Over 60,000 views of The Cereal box Price Guide so far in the brief amount of time it has existed. So we soldier on. I try to add 6 to 10 new boxes every day on average. Today I added 25, though it took approx 3 days to ready that content.

 As of today we have over 3,300 Collectible Cereal Boxes pictured so far in this price guide n more on the way. This is an ongoing project. 

Another proud moment for me is the fact that when I started listing Cereal Boxes on Ebay there were approx 3,800 cereal box listings in total. After a lot of work, there are now over 11,300+ cereal box listings on Ebay. 


When you click one of the advert on this page, that is how I earn money for writing this.

My Personal Top 10 Cereal Boxes at end of This Chapter

A moment for a quick gripe. I just did a quick search on google for cereal box n the Cereal Box Price Guide was not even on the first 10 pages of result. No end of stupid was on the first ten pages, but not the most relevant site to that search. Reasons below n explained in this chapter, but seriously folks, aren't search results supposed to help people?

If there is a better resource on Cereal Boxes than The Cereal Box Price Guide, I've never seen it. Nothing comes even close.

Humility? OK check out The Cereal Box Price Guide, is there anything on the Web or in print that has more Cereal Boxes featured, dated, n valued? Is there anywhere in the Universe where you will see more Cereal Boxes? That settled the Cereal Box Price Guide is the number one destination/resource for Cereal Box Collecting.


Though I must say some of the prices people are asking on ebay for cereal boxes are just plain stupid. What on earth are you trying to do, because quite obviously you are not going to sell that box at that price. Here's the shocker, I'm not talking about the $200.00 to $700.00 listings. My criticism is of $5 to $10.00 Cereal Boxes that are up at $15 to $30.00. Why on earth do you do something like that when a quick look around shows you the same boxes at $5 to $10.00.

The Dickens you say, people actually collect empty cereal boxes? I've been involved with collectibles for over 40 years n from that I can tell you this. Cereal boxes are the most natural, organic if you will allow, thing that people might actually collect. 

Every one of us stared at cereal boxes as children at morning breakfast. Most of us saw the commercials on Saturday morning then harassed mom till she bought us that cereal so we could have the prize, then heard from mom, you begged me for that so now you damn well better eat it. 

I don't know about you but my 4 brothers n I actually fought over those little prizes in cereal boxes. Winners got to shove there hand into the box n collect there victory in the form of a paper or cello wrapped toy. My brothers n I also built forts at the breakfast table with every cereal box in the cupboard so we would not have to look at each other so early in the morning.

We all grew up with Cereal Boxes, they were a very important part of our childhood. As children we also collected gum cards. Well cereal boxes are big kid gum cards, bigger because we are bigger. We collected gum cards as kid cause others said they were good. We collect cereal boxes because we say they are good and because they bring back such great memories of our childhood.

The most Cereal Boxes pictured anywhere in print or on line. More Cereal Boxes in a single chapter than most other sites have in total.

Wheaties, the Monster Cereals (Count Chocula, Boo Berry, Franken Berry, Yummy Mummy n Fruite Brute), Cap'n Crunch n Pebbles will be covered in there own chapters. The reason is there are 4 groups of boxes that deserve a higher focus for collectors; Wheaties, Monster Cereals, Cap'n Crunch n Pebbles.

I deal with cereal boxes every day as a seller, buyer, collector n cataloger. From these activities I can tell you with a degree of certainty Wheaties, the Monster Cereals, Cap'n Crunch n Pebbles are the most popular n active cereal boxes.

NEW. Where possible I've added the year a particular brand of cereal first made its appearance on store shelves. Ongoing.

Let's get one Thing Straight right from the jump. In My Book Graham Crackers Are Breakfast Cereal.  It's Been My Favorite Thing To Eat In The Morning Since I Was A Child. One Whole Pack Added 3 At A time To A Bowl Of Milk. Graham Crackers First Thing In The Mornin N I Can Take On The World.
Graham this n Graham that Cereals suck in comparison to to the real thing. Graham Crackers are n always have been the perfect Breakfast Cereal.


This box represents to me the period in my life when I mailed away for 10s of thousands of cereal premiums from the Cereal Companies. That forced the Cereal Companies to change there redemption policies by how many premiums per household. My Cereal premium project predated My Pez Outlaw days n provided a lot of the seed money for the Pez Outlaw Project. I've still got a few of these watches. They don't work n there is no way to change the batteries. I wore one for a year.


I'm writing this because cereal boxes have been a personal passion of mine for 40 years. I have to admit though, there is a second reason. There is nothing currently available to collectors like what the Cereal Box Price Guide will be. I've looked. The best I found were portion aspects. A list but no pictures, dates or prices or pictures but zero true info about actually collecting cereal boxes. The actual how n why to collecting cereal boxes. 

Some places have pictures but you've gotta keep changing pages to see another, again no years & no values. Very tedious n time consuming. Here you just scroll down n voila there she be.

I've also noticed what seems to be the norm for printed guides to cereal boxes. That norm seems to be a conglomerate of radio premiums, cereal premiums n finally cereal boxes. As I approach this project one thing is very clear. A guide to only US release cereal boxes is massive enough. How could a guide that includes radio premiums n cereal premiums leave enough room to do cereal boxes properly.

As it stands I'm not going to include boring boxes like Bran this n Bran that or Whole grain healthy crap. My colon be damned, give me sugar sweetened n unhealthy by today's goofy standards. I'm old n could not give a crap anymore, I eat what I like, life is to short to trade quality for boring. Anyway the point being, even eliminating the the boring crap healthy cereal this thing is gonna be very big/long. So how in God's name could you possibly have room for premiums.

The exception on boring cereal will be boxes that have good or interesting offers on them. Examples; Post Toasties, Grape Nuts n Grape Nuts Flakes will be included because the offers on the boxes were to good to ignore them.

On premiums. Don't fall into the premium trap. I spent 20 years collecting premiums, when I actually should have ignored them n collected the Cereal Boxes they came in. I could honestly kick myself for that. Collecting premiums is only collecting half the picture. Collecting both is a diffusion of efforts. Every premium you buy to go with a box is an additional cereal box you could have acquire with that money. The Cereal box alone is enough, the illustration of the premium on the box covers the premium. Buying the premium also is a waste of time n money. 

The number of Cereal Boxes you can collect is huge enough without wasting needed funds on extraneous items. I'll tell you a secret, the biggest mistake I made with Pez was buying all that crap that was not actually a pez dispenser. I wasted massive amounts of time n money on stupid.

So here are the rules. 

1. Collect cereal boxes n cereal boxes only.

2. Do not collect cereal premiums.

3. Do not collect cereal related advertising crap.

4. Do not collect box tops or half boxes.

5. Save your money for near complete boxes. One or 2 missing flaps is acceptable.

6. Buying crap to have an example is not a good idea. A crappy condition box will just eat at you over the years. Even stored away, in your mind you know it is there.

7. Fancy Dealers will happily sell you shit. Take your time, not having it is better than having crap. If you don't have it, it's always out there just waiting for you to find it. The Quest.

8. I'd rather own the newer boxes I talk about below than a cool old box in poor condition.

1986 Ghost Busters Hologram Cereal Box = $25.00 I'd love to tell you this box is worth $50.00, because it is. Problem with that is, people currently will not Pay more than $25.00. That's the problem with valuing boxes, myself n say 12 others might feel a box is worth $500.00 to $1,000.00, but if only 10 people would ever pay that, if they didn't already have it. Is it truly worth that kind of money, no. A box is worth what it will actually sell for in say a 6 to 12 month time period.
I will be spending a lot of time on Wheaties n Kellogg's in general. Reason, more people view Wheaties day to day n over the year than all other brands combined. The Kellogg's part 1 chapter comes in a solid second. In an ongoing effort to flesh out what people want, I will always add Wheaties n Kellogg's info as soon as I have it ready.

The values I place on cereal boxes are my opinion of what is reasonable to think you might get for a particular box. Big time dealers place much higher values on some boxes, it is an arbitrary number waiting for some idiot who has to much money. It works, but that's not how we are going to value cereal boxes here. You are not going to find an idiot with to much money for your box, idiots are a developed clientele nurtured by Big Time Dealers, there is a very limited supply of them. No, you my friends are in all likelihood going to have to sell your box or buy it in the real world n that is how I will place values.

I was limiting top value to $250.00. I'm probably going to increase that. A lot of cereal boxes are really valued at $250.00 to approx $900.00. Even still , I will probably not value any cereal box over $500.00. I've been reluctant because I do not want to encourage replicas. Two points here. I've been noticing a definite increase in the number of replicas on ebay. Second I've also notice a lot of replicas in existing collections.

This increase in replicas in the hobby troubles me only as to sales of these items down the road by people who don't realize that they are replicas to people who can't spot a replica. Newbies.  

People tend to collect what was a part of there child hood or in this case what they ate. Example; Cocoa Krispies verses Cocoa Pebbles. Cocoa Pebles are & always have been more popular. End result most Cereal Box Collectors collect Cocoa Pebbles, Cocoa Krispies not so much. Sugar Crisp yes, Smacks to a lesser degree. Within cereal types produced by the various Companies one emerged as most popular with us as children, as adults we kept our bias as we collect.

Cereal Boxes are like adult Gum Cards. Bigger & more fun. A cereal box is like a TV show featuring a special guest appearance / Who's on the box. The first of something new & cool or a really great character featured on the box.  

This box is a perfect example of a really good cereal box. It's a 2005 box that hits the nail on the head of what makes a cereal box collectible. The crazy factor is really high on this one. A cereal box does not have to be old to be good. Firsts n old are good but even a brand that's been around forever can knock one out of the park now and then.

Classification of value n desirability for a cereal box starts this way. You have a maker then the brand n it's mascot in some cases, then it is about what is happening on the face of the box. Offers can add value, celebrity guest appearance can add value or if the mascot is in a costume, that can add vale. To me a great example of costuming mascots is the 1995 series of Pebbles cereals where Barney is in different crazy costumes. I love these. 

example of costuming mascots is the 1995 series of Pebbles cereals where Barney is in different crazy costumes. I love these. Again a cereal box does not have to be really old to be really good.
The crazier the front of a box is, the better it is.

Some boxes have names. Example below is the Pebbles Chocolate Dragon box. A really good name alone can make a box iconic. Put that with crazy & costumed. Ding, Ding you have a winner. Mark my words 20 to 30 years from now this box will be known as the Chocolate Dragon Box.

This box is a good example of all 3. Costumes check. Crazy check. Box that actually has a name check. Pebbles Chocolate Dragon Box.


Mascots for cereal boxes seem to evolve about every decade. So obviously earlier incarnations of Tony, Lucky or Cap'n Crunch by themselves adds value. Another example is say Franken Berry pouring milk into the bowl from a pitcher, better box.

The company that first took Licensed by Character or Movie boxes with no brand affiliation ( like still General Mills but not Cherios) within the corporate header to its furthest point was Ralston. The license was the brand of Ralston, Kellogg's etc. Now that Ralston is out of the picture General Mills, Kellogg's n Post have picked up where they left off. I call this category of product the Ralston effect.

Most of the chapters are going to have a category called the Ralston effect. The Ralston effect category is for example Star Wars Cereal by General Mills or Polar Express Cereal by Post.

One more thing about Ralston. Early on & now again Ralston was n could be nothing more than all the rest of the generic brands of cereal. Cereal boxes that nobody really collect. Ralston got behind there brands Grins n Giggles, Freakies, Fruit Islands etc, with characters n promotions. I've seen some pretty cool generic boxes, but they don't follow up or promote themselves. Ralston was an iconic company of unique innovative brands n characters. 

Ralston got lazy by going with movie licensed brands, making there future fortunes boom or bust. Don't get me wrong I love some of these boxes, Urkelos, WWF, Ghost Busters etc, but a few licenses like Robin Hood Prince of Thieves &  Addams family can sink a company. Heck I bought a lot of even WWF at Dollar stores. I just feel Ralston Cereal might have had a brighter future if they'd stuck with Freakies, Fruit Islands & about half the licenses they did. God bless them though, Ralston cereal as we knew it died but we got all those great cereal boxes.

I personally own over 10,000 cereal boxes. I also buy cereal boxes, but I pay prices that take a longer view of things. Translation, I'm cheap. Any idiot can pay big money for something.

My all time favorite cereal boxes are Baron Von Redberry & Sir Grape Fellow. Next probably the Monster cereal boxes. These are my personal favorite, ones I would cherish above all others. That said I would feel crappy unless I got an extremely good buy in acquiring them. I can live without them at the wrong price.

My favorite group of cereal boxes is the Monster Cereal group, Count Chocula, Franken Berry, Boo Berry, Yummy Mummy & Fruit Brute. Hands down no competition Big G Monster Cereals are the best. 

My favorite cereal Company is Ralston, again no competition. More unique licensed product during the right time period to be affordable. Cabbage Patch, Ghost Busters, WWF, Early Cookie Crisp/dark brown boxes, Dinersaurs, Dinky Donuts, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr, Dunkin Donuts, Freakies, Fruit Islands, G I Joe, Gremlins, Grins & Smiles & Giggles & Laughs, Moonstones, Nerds, Nintendo, Rainbow Brite, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Urkelos & Waffelos. Now that is a group of cereal boxes you want to collect & I didn't even name everything.

If Ralston had also done the Monster Cereals, Baron Von Redberry, Sir Grape Fellow, Quisp, Quake & Quangaroos, you would only need to collect Ralston. 

My least favorite Cereal Company is Nabisco. There are some pretty good boxes from Nabisco, but generally the worst group of cereal boxes for collecting.


Recently I had to come to grips with my feelings towards Wheaties Cereal Boxes. I've been very critical & wrong. My position was there are tons of them out there & everybody collects them. Hence my thought was they are worthless. Wrong, Wrong, Wrong. The truth is actually in the critique. Everybody Collects them. With typical stupidity I was fighting the current. Recoiling against what is truly popular. My problem, I'm gonna work on it.


On that very point.  the Cereal Box Price Guide has been up long enough that consistent data that bares this out is now available. The Wheaties chapter is viewed day in day out n overall 3 to 1 over any other chapter. In other words you name the brand of cereal, Wheaties are viewed 3 times as much on a daily basis or overall.

I know to big collectors Wheaties are not as sexy as Count Chocula, Franken Berry, Yummy Mummy, Fruit Brute, Quisp, Quake, Quangaroos, Cap'n Crunch, Ghost Busters, Freakies, Fruit Islands, Grins & Smiles & Giggles & Laughs, Moonstones, Nerds,  & Waffelos  etc. Problem for me in writing this book is solved very simple. Give the reader what they overwhelmingly want, WHEATIES. This data also shows me I made the correct decision by giving Wheaties there own chapter.

Wheaties are the most popular Cereal Boxes collected. I now embrace this fact.

To back the above statement up. This week an 8 cereal box series of Wheaties boxes from the 1970s, all unused factory flats sold as one lot for $1,754.00. This auction started out at .99 cents. To say the least I was dumfounded by the winning bid. If this does not bare out the above statement, nothing will. Over $200.00 per box on average. I've seen "great" boxes in the opinion of Cereal Box collectors "in the know" like Grins n Giggles or Moonstones go for say $100.00 or less each. Or other "great" boxes up for sale for a year at a time at $200.00 plus, that do not sell. So you tell me, What is the most popular cereal brand to general cereal box collectors en mass. WHEATIES, hands down Wheaties. There really is no dispute.

I noticed something while working on Wheaties this week.  1942 to 1945 are very lean on cereal boxes, here is why in my opinion. On December 7, 1941 World War II began. The USA was ill prepared for the war, so as a nation we had to scramble, very fast. This war effort included rationing for consumers and manufacturers. Massive amounts of raw materials were required for the war effort. We not only had to produce war materials for US efforts, we also had to carry a big part of the load for Europe and Russia.

So rationing of raw materials change packaging and quantities produced. Add to that, that during the war years what we call recycling was instituted in a big way to provide further for the needs of raw materials. Families and children were in perpetual paper and metal drives, collecting used materials needed for the war effort. So what little may have been produced in large part ended up in paper drives/recycled. Resulting in not many cereal boxes survived from the years 1942 to 1945.

Now for a very controversial subject. 
How to collect, do you leave the cereal in the boxes or empty the box & carefully flatten them? Please remember this is my opinion.

I would not give you 2 cents more for a cereal box with contents still in it. I'm actually a little ticked off when I buy boxes that have contents instead of being flattened. Full boxes cost a ton to ship & are prone to damage in shipping. Flattened boxes ship & store better. Getting a box from here to there in time is accomplished with less damage to the box if they are flattened.

To me nobody in there right mind would collect full boxes. You say you like to display them, ok. I've been collecting cereal boxes for over 30 years. Full boxes damage themselves just sitting on the shelf. They belly & bag. Dust can & does damage the box. Light damages the box. The contents themselves damage the box. All this is going on year after year even when in adding a box to a shelf, dusting etc, you don't knock one off & damage a corner. Flattened boxes is the only sure way to collect cereal boxes & minimize damage to your collection over the years.

Definitions

Full = box with original contents.

Flattened = a box that was once full of cereal, then emptied & carefully flattened, using existing side seams. The box will show you how as you attempt it.

A Flat = unused, never assembled. These can come two ways, an uncut sheet or a cut sheet ready to be shaped & glued. Most commonly these are found as cut sheets. I fold these once at the seam for shipping. I find it just plain stupid to attempt to ship a flat unfolded, every additional square inch of shipping surface increases the chance of damage when shipping. All file copies at manufacturers are folded once at a seam. Get over it people, it does no damage realistically to the flat & extends the overall life condition of the flat.

Shaped Flat = a flat that has been folded at side seems & glued. Top & bottom flaps have not been folded on a shaped flat. Shaped flats are the printers product ready for use at the factory.

How do you Figure out the year a cereal box was actually made?
* Never go by the copyrights on the side panel. Copyright year can be wildly off.
* Best is if the box has a sell by date stamped into a top or bottom panel. Usually box was manufacture in previous year of sell by date. Though these are not always there.
*  Another way is if the box has an offer form with an expiration date. Example = Offer expires December 31, 1993. Box is from 1992 in all likelihood.
* Sometimes you may find a date on a bottom side panel flap. Example = 5-92. On that one that is the date of manufacture.
* One final way. On some boxes there is a circle of numbers with say 95 in the center. That is that boxes year of manufacture.
* Though sometimes there are none of the above. In that case scour all panels for any date that seems reasonable.

Shipping = I ship cereal boxes between 2 sheets of cardboard. Double corrugated is best. Also best if the cardboard you use to ship is big enough that you can fold it once to create the shipper. Use a piece that after folded once creates an envelope 1/2 inch bigger on all sides than the cereal box you are shipping. I find a cereal box has one ship in it without damage. If a person returns the box in original packaging it will most likely have damage.

The crease = there is one flaw almost every cereal box that ever served time on a store shelf will have. It is the top crease in the middle from where people commonly pick it up. More or less people pick up a box of cereal from the top using the thumb on one side index finger same hand on the back side. We all do it. Check yourself out next time at the store, grab a box off the shelf, pause & note the indentation you made in the box. To me this is the common flaw in almost all flattened cereal boxes. You can prize for it not being there, but it would be nuts to discount for it.

Again why I only collect flattened boxes. Say miracle of miracles you have a full box on a shelve at home. Are you gonna put an armed guard on it to keep some idiot from picking it up the most common way everyone in the world would. If a cereal box is full it will get this crease sooner or later.


Cut up boxes & torn boxes. If damage to a box exceeds 10% of the overall box appearance. Why Bother.  You might buy it cause you can't afford better or even find another, but good luck ever getting your money back. Torn or cutup boxes are difficult to resell. A coupon like Betty Crocker or a proof of purchase cut from a top or bottom flap I can live with as long as it does not affect front, back or side panels.

I've got to be honest with you. Boxes I buy from the 1990s or later with tears or are cut up, I just tear them in half & throw them away. There just not worth the space they take up.

Hard fact / Harsh reality. I buy cereal boxes in quantity, preferably 50 to a thousand or 2 at a time. I pay roughly $1.00 per box for flats. I pay .50 cents to $1.00 each for flattened boxes in quantity. This is for boxes I want in Quantity. I have payed $2.00 each for Ralston Flats, quantity over 750. I as a dealer can not pay more & hope to make any kind of reasonable profit to me.

As with the whole Pez thingy, see Pez Outlaw Diary. I have a lot of added costs in advertising, promotion & support material. Time expenditure alone creating  the Cereal Box Price Guide.

I sometimes note in caption, boxes I like. This just means I personally like it, that for whatever personal reason. I like it. Sometimes it will be colors combined with overall box presentation, like the 1997 McDonald's Kellogg's Honey Crunch Corn Flakes cereal box. Others it might be as in the case of the Corn Flakes Memphis Box, I'd never seen one like it before. As with anything you collect, it should be about what you like. Not what others tell you is great.
 
Remember I'm trying to avoid crazy values in  the Cereal Box Price Guide. I want to value at a good buy for the item. On values my bottom value will be $5 to $10.00. Here's why. Either you want a box or you don't. If you don't it is worth nothing to you. If you want it, how do you not value it at $5 to $10.00? A box of cereal costs about $4.00 at the store, so for a box to exist it starts at a $4.00 value in life. $5 to $10.00 is just easier as a bottom line. If you won't pay $5 to $10.00 for a cereal box, why are you even bothering to collect.

One final point on the values I place on boxes. There are boxes I value lower than a big time dealer would try selling it for. Reality check here. A big time collectibles dealer might occasionally get that kind of money for it. You and I are not going to get that kind of money for it. Reason is the big time dealer has developed the client base & reputation that brings big money buyers to them. We are going to get approx half. 

For someone who finds a pile of boxes somewhere 1st sale money is fare. We are who big time dealers buy from quite often. That is our share, we don't have the contacts or years of work building a client base & reputation. Hoping for all the money is stupid greedy. You & I play our part & take our share. Plus my guess is you don't want to wait years to get top dollar.

As sure as God made little green apples the Cereal Box Price Guide will come under attack for it's low valuing structure.  The cereal box "collector " elites will take great um-bridge at the values I place on really good boxes.

When I first started putting cereal boxes on ebay there were roughly 3,000 total listings for the search "cereal box".  Now 2 years later that same search on ebay yields 7,000  to 8,000 listings. Draw your own conclusions.


I'd also like to mention to current cereal box dealers. Do you really think you are helping the hobby by asking $500.00 to $1200.00 for older cereal boxes. Those prices serve only two purposes, to enrich you and promote laser copies as viable/acceptable alternatives at $25.00 each.

On Laser copies of rare very expensive cereal boxes. They are acceptable alternatives and relatively easy to distinguish from the real thing. Problem is proliferation of them into collections and what happens with them further down the road to newbie collectors who don't have a good eye. I'm not condemning laser copies, just that this is the down side to them. 


I love cereal boxes, as I have for 4 decades. I'm interested in the true fanatic collectors out there like kb8. I'm not interested in top money, just enough so I can keep buying everything I like that goes by. 

Last time even though I tried to say all the right things to fit in & not rock the boat. Look where that got me, broke.This time I'm gonna do it on my terms. Begin as you plan to continue, it is just easier.

I promise to pay attention to the nature of Google searches that bring you here.

example; "cost of a box of cereal 1970"

Go to the chapter that covers the brand of cereal that your box is. Scroll down to the year of your box. Years are in order in captions under pictures. If it's not your particular box what is there should give you an idea. Exception is if your box has an extraordinary offer on the back or character on the front, it will be worth more.

My Personal Top 10 Cereal Boxes
no specific order. not best 10, but my personal favorites. List will change as I get charged up on new ones.

1947 Iron Jaw Robot Wheaties Cereal Box = $125.00

1980 Corn Flakes Cereal Box = $25 to $50.00 The Banana Man Box. How do you not like this box?

1982 Banana Frosted flakes Cereal Box = $350.00 gorgious, exceptional box. very very desirable. Tony in a straw hat carrying a bunch of Bananas. Can a box be any better.

1995 Cocoa Pebbles Dr Fudgerock Cereal Box = $5 to $10.00 actually this whole series of Barney costumed characters, 10ish in series, from 1995

1995 Fruity Pebbles Free Stuff Cereal Box = $5 to $10.00 same as above just Fruity version w/dif character. this n 10 fruity + 10 Cocoa in 1995 series count as 1 in this list.

1982 Cap'n Crunch's Choco Crunch = $125.00 any box with Choco Beast

1973 Jean LaFoote's NEW Cinnamon Crunch Cereal Box = $250.00 any box with Jean LaFoote

1980 Peanut Butter w Acrobat Cereal Box = $25 to $50.00
any box with Smedley

1983 Count Chocula Cereal Box = $50 to $125.00 Basically any n all 1970s or 1980s Count Chocula, Frankenberry or Boo Berry Box.

1970 Quake Cereal Box = $250.00
Basically any n all 1960s or 1970s Quisp, Quake or Quangaroos Box

Reader Alert.

I had to break up Kellogg's into 2 chapters. The first chapter is Apple Cinnamon Squares thru Frosted Flakes. The second chapter is everything after Frosted Flakes. Problem is Corn Flakes, Froot Loops n Frosted Flakes are very large n pictures were slowing the chapter upload with the rest included. I don't know about you but if a page takes to long to upload I loose interest n leave. We can't have that so I divied Kellogg's up into 2 Chapters. 

Kellogg's Chapter 2 will include Pops, Rice Krispies n Smacks. Again kinda large groups of boxes. We will see if I'm forced to do this with Post. General Mills is already divided by taking Wheaties n the Monster Cereals Out. Hopefully that was enough with GM.

Worth mentioning n totally off topic. I just sold the item below for $15.00. This is only interesting in that it shows value of packaging as a collectible.

I need more cereal boxes. I pay $1.00 per box when I can for cereal boxes in good shape. I prefer to buy cereal boxes in larger quantities, though I will buy smaller quantities of say 12 to 50 boxes. I especially need Cocoa Pebbles, Fruity Pebbles, Count Chocula, Frankenberry, Boo Berry, Cap'n Crunch all types n all Ralston cereals.

Open letter to Cereal Companies - Kellogg's - Post - General Mills - Quaker - Nabisco

I was just forced to buy 800 Wheaties cereal boxes for a few hundred dollars. General Mills this may not sound like much money to you but that was for 400 each of 2 dif boxes. 12 types are available of 400 each. General Mills I can not afford this, yet I need these boxes for this project to succeed. You n I both know these boxes on offer were procured under the table, benefiting only the borrower n the seller. Just like Pez I'm being forced to do things the hard way, again. My problem is The Cereal Box Price Guide will only benefit Cereal Companies by raising the Status of Cereal n substantiating the claim of value for Cereal Boxes as collectibles. You've been making this claim for years, now finally I'm putting proof to that claim. Yet my plea for your assistance goes unanswered. 

I need 10s of thousands of cereal boxes to continue n complete this project. So I ask Cereal Companies here in the USA to send me boxes so I can continue this work.

The Cereal Box Price Guide is the first n only of it's kind. A guide to collecting cereal boxes. A possible book that celebrates how magical n collectible your product is. the Cereal Box Price Guide has an image for every cereal box valued.

Unlike other requests you may get, large quantities of boxes from 1990 to 2014 are welcome. I need a lot of everything. Please send Massive quantities. Hundreds of 1 box type welcome.

Before we start, a reminder. When you click one of the advert on this page, that is how I earn money for writing this.



I grew up when Cereal was King in the 1950s n 1960s when sugar was good not evil. For me Cereal is an indulgence, something I eat to enjoy, not to have healthy poo. 

People are convinced if they sacrifice what they like or want, they will live forever. What's the point of longer life if traded for quality of life.

Cereal to me is my Ice Cream, I eat it in the same way those who like Ice Cream eat it. FYI I don't care for Ice Cream, I don't hate it, I just have no erg to eat it. I like Cereal.

OK Back to our regularly scheduled program.

Another example is about 2  years ago a dealer bought 8,000 cereal boxes from an executive at Kellogg's. My guess is the executive pocketed approximately $2,000 to $4,000.00. My question to you Kellogg's is, How did this help you in any way? Did it promote your product or brand in any way? 

Those 8,000 cereal boxes will in all likelihood set in limbo waiting for me to promote cereal to the point where this dealer can capitalize on his buy, because of years of my work. In the end the executive who sold them n the dealer who bought them will profit. That's it no real gain to the cereal company or the hobby of collecting cereal boxes. Two individuals gain, no one else.

With me a pile of boxes gets used to promote n glorify collecting.  I use any new boxes I get to continue the work on this the only real Cereal Box Price Guide. Next I maintain between 1200 n 1600 cereal boxes on ebay year in year out. Those ebay listings are each an advertisement as to the collectibility of cereal boxes, not to mention maintaining high visibility of cereal as a hobby. Seeing value becomes perceived value. The majority of my ebay listings do not sell, there purpose is to provide a footprint for cereal boxes as a collectible.

My observation is this. Most of you Kellogg's, General Mills, Post, Quaker & Nabisco like to proclaim on some of your boxes that they are collectible, like people in general should care. Yet you do not support this claim with action. To me it's like not training or even entering the race, yet proclaiming yourself a champion.

Sure executives & advertising agency people sell boxes n make money for themselves. How does any of this help you?

The Cereal Box Price Guide is the first n only of it's kind. A guide to collecting cereal boxes. A possible book that celebrates how magical n collectible your product is. the Cereal Box Price Guide has an image for every cereal box valued.

You want what you claim to be illustrated to the World, I need good examples of your boxes to do this. Yes I will sell most of them after I photograph them n list them in  the Cereal Box Price Guide. My labors here are also not free.

I'd also like to mention that maintaining over 1,500 listings on ebay is not cheap. It's important to show how collectible cereal boxes are through availability at reasonable rates. Having over 1,500 listings on ebay is a way of advertising cereal boxes as a collectible. Presents n presentation gets people thinking n valuing what they have.

First thing I'd do is buy a better camera with some of the proceeds.

Here's a good example of how this price guide could help. People collect Cocoa Pebble but not so much Cocoa Krispies. Why, because they actually ate n preferred Cocoa Pebble. This guide if I had the boxes could show collectors the great Cocoa Krispies Boxes n why they were cool. Same goes for Smacks vs Super/Sugar Crisps. All the other Flakes vs Corn Flakes.

Your choice Post, General mills, Nabisco, Quaker n Kellogg's is this. Continue to let your employees enrich themselves & gain nothing. Or as a company support your claims of how collectible a box truly is by supporting the price guide. I need thousands n thousands of boxes to build n support  the Cereal Box Price Guide. Take those boxes your executives are selling n send them to me. If they sell them you gain absolutely nothing. Why not at least put a foot forward toward possible gain by supporting the Cereal Box Price Guide.

Unlike other requests you may get, large quantities of boxes from 1990 to 2013 are welcome. I need a lot of everything. Please send Massive quantities. As with my Pez Years I deal in thousands not 50s. In my 12 year history of Pez, 2 Million Pez passed through my hands. Usual acquisitions were approx 10,000 at a time. Largest acquisition, approx 134,000 pieces in a single shipment to me. So bring it on, do your best to overwhelm me. I dare you, I double dog dare you.

Two Million Pez in 12 years is precisely how a hobby is built. It's much easier to verify a claim of Collectible on a Cereal Box if 10 to 20 thousand people actually collect Cereal Boxes. Common Knowledge of collectivity will trump Claims of, every time. My clientele in my Pez years was approx 10,000 collectors world wide. The number who actually had Pez Collections was more. 

I'm asking you to seed a reality. Your investment in sending me boxes so I can get this thing going would be a fraction of a fraction of one 30 second spot on a major network. Sending me boxes free is an investment in a new reality of cereal boxes as a major collectible. I did it with Pez n I didn't have a Book like the Cereal Box Price Guide to ignite my activities. The only Pez Book when I started was a crap picture book n that came a few years in.

The Cereal Box Price Guide is the culmination of everything I learned last go round. As is the nature of this request. I'm inviting you the Companies to join with me by contributing to this new effort. I can do it the other way like last time, but I would prefer you join with me. That we work together.

You may or may not have read Pez Outlaw Diary. If you have, you will note Pez Corporation and I worked very much at cross purposes. Hell, Pez Corporation HATED me. Executives at Pez Corporation thought I actually made more money than they did. US Companies on occasion thought I was Pez Corporation because my public profile was larger than there's. 

All that with Pez Corporation Fighting me every inch of the way. How much more could we have accomplished had we worked together as I am inviting you to do here in the beginning? I will point out to you also that this beginning with Cereal boxes is 10 times the beginning I launched the Pez project with.

I don't do meetings, phones or email. I communicate here in this fashion. If you would like to join me n participate by sending pallets of cereal boxes to help fuel this, they would be welcomed and appreciated. The address is below or you can take the route Pez Corporation did. Pretty much every man for themselves at your companies. Whoever has it or can lay there hands on it within your companies will enrich themselves with no benefit to the company whatsoever.

This all has been playing out for 20 years now.  The Cereal Box Price Guide is going to pour gas on it. Take the reins by joining me or go the way PEZ Corporation did. Your choice. 

You don't have to like someone or even talk to them for them to be useful to you, but you do have to seize opportunity when presented.

So far I've had to do this the Outlaw way. Better to do what has to be done n ask forgiveness later. I really hope this time can be different. Either way this is going to get done. It will just take longer without your help.

Some of the other countries besides the USA viewing  the Cereal Box Price Guide are.

Russia, Germany, Canada, United Kingdom, South Korea, Mexico, France, Ukraine, Australia, Japan and Italy. 

This offer especially goes for Nabisco/Kraft, because guys I got nothin. As it stands you at Nabisco n your boxes appear to be the dregs of collecting cereal boxes. Is that the way you want to leave it? Check out the other cereal company chapters n compare what's in yours. I need a lot of boxes to change this for you.

My attempt here is to celebrate Cereal Boxes, by proxy this celebrates the companies that produce these products n validates often made claims on boxes about how collectible a box is.

Gentlemen this effort on my part is not free. I need boxes to do this. Don't be afraid to send multiple duplicates as I also need to make my house payment, eat n feed my dogs.  You can support the price guide or continue to let employees enrich themselves. The choice is yours.

I've heard stories of printers, advertising agencies n cereal companies having pallets of stuff just sitting around waiting to be trashed. Send me those pallets, I've got a very large warehouse to put them in.

As a name for my persona in these efforts. Cereal box Outlaw? Cereal Box Bandit? Thief of Boxdad?

Cereal Box dealers. How can you help? Stay out of my way.

Cap'n Crunch gets it's own chapter because it deserves it's own chapter. In my opinion Cap'n Crunch Cereal boxes are that good n that important to collect if you collect Cereal Boxes.

When you click one of the advert on this page, that is how I earn money for writing this.

Definitions

Full = box with original contents.

Flattened = a box that was once full of cereal, then emptied & carefully flattened, using existing side seams. The box will show you how as you attempt it.

A Flat = unused, never assembled. These can come two ways, an uncut sheet or a cut sheet ready to be shaped & glued. Most commonly these are found as cut sheets. I fold these once at the seam for shipping. I find it just plain stupid to attempt to ship a flat unfolded, every additional square inch of shipping surface increases the chance of damage when shipping. All file copies at manufacturers are folded once at a seam. Get over it people, it does no damage realistically to the flat & extends the overall life condition of the flat.

Shaped Flat = a flat that has been folded at side seems & glued. Top & bottom flaps have not been folded on a shaped flat. Shaped flats are the printers product ready for use at the factory.

The crease = there is one flaw almost every cereal box that ever served time on a store shelf will have. It is the top crease in the middle from where people commonly pick it up. More or less people pick up a box of cereal from the top using the thumb on one side index finger same hand on the back side. We all do it. Check yourself out next time at the store, grab a box off the shelf, pause & note the indentation you made in the box. To me this is the common flaw in almost all flattened cereal boxes. You can prize for it not being there, but it would be nuts to discount for it.

Again why I only collect flattened boxes. Say miracle of miracles you have a full box on a shelve at home. Are you gonna put an armed guard on it to keep some idiot from picking it up the most common way everyone in the world would. If a cereal box is full it will get this crease sooner or later.

Remember I do not value at prices people want. I value at a good buy for the item. On values my bottom value will be $5 to $10.00. Here's why. Either you want a box or you don't. If you don't it is worth nothing to you. If you want it, how do you not value it at $5 to $10.00? A box of cereal costs about $4.00 at the store, so for a box to exist it starts at a $4.00 value in life. $5 to $10.00 is just easier as a bottom line. If you won't pay $5 to $10.00 for a cereal box, why are you even bothering to collect.

Hard fact / Harsh reality. I buy cereal boxes in quantity, preferably 50 to a thousand or 2 at a time. I pay roughly $1.00 per box for flats. I pay .50 cents to $1.00 each for flattened boxes in quantity. This is for boxes I want in Quantity. I have payed $2.00 each for Ralston Flats, quantity over 750. I as a dealer can not pay more & hope to make any kind of reasonable profit to me.

As with the whole Pez thingy, see Pez Outlaw Diary. I have a lot of added costs in advertising, promotion & support material. Time expenditure alone creating the Cereal Box Price Guide.

WARNING! Prices in this guide are for near complete boxes. Meaning 1 or 2 flaps missing. I see a lot of Box backs or fronts only for sale on ebay etc. To me one panel front or back has no value. A portion of a box, box top etc has no value. This guide values near complete boxes only.
