1968 Cornflakes Champions Cards

Not a lot is known about this issue.  It is a 48-card set, and is believed to have been issued on the backs of boxes of Cornflakes cereal in 1968, perhaps only on a regional basis.  Of the 48 cards in the set, only 16 featured AFL players.  Additionally, the photos used on the cards are seemingly identical to the Sports Illustrated posters of a similar time period.
