The Official Post War Regional, Food, Snack and Beverage Thread
 
1 Attachment(s)
This is one on my collecting niches and and certainly one of my favorites. Cards inserted into food and beverage products really took off in the 1950s both at the local and National level. Off the beaten track for many, the likes of Stahl Meyer, Drakes, Royal Pudding, Johnston cookies etc. are glorious issues to some of us. I wanted start a thread dedicated to those great products and the baseball items that resulted. Our resident expert Brian Powell ( hi Brian) wrote a fantastic book - Never Cheaper By The Dozen- on these fantastic issues and has taught me a lot. First off, an incredibly scarce beverage issue from 1958. Let's see yours!!!

love the Wilson Meats cards...aside from having a type from the set, these are beautiful cards...perhaps if I'm motivated in the future, I'd seriously consider persuing more...

great set and pick-up!

Last one...the beautiful Claudia Cardinale. I think this qualifies as a food issue as it has an oatmeal cookie recipe on the back. And yes, I collect cards of actresses I like.

I had never seen those cards before. Rubinstein looks as though he had seen better days, yet he lived another 13 years after the card was issued. LOL.

Morrell Meats
 
Sorry, can't find my images of my Koufaxes; but the Morrell Meats sets are particularly beautiful, full photo, nothing else on front of card. they also are postcard quality shots; some (maybe too many) have static shots in the LA Coliseum without particularly good landscaping, but overall they are a gorgeous set, especially when seen together

If they were a Topps set, I think they'd place awfully high on the thread for best Topps set of all times; they also have decent, stat-backs.

In Japan the main card maker is Calbee, which distributes all its cards in bags of potato chips.

I'm currently working on the 1975-1976 set which has 1472 cards - distributed one per bag of chips back in the day so you can imagine how difficult it is to track these things down.

These are some of the Sadaharu Oh cards from the set.

Those Swift Meats cards have always creeped me out. Kind of figures that a meat packer would make cards of dismembered players.

brian1961 05-14-2018 12:41 PM

It did my heart good, Dave Berg, to read the gracious words you wrote about enjoying NEVER CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN. I have heard so little from collectors who bought a copy, nor from auction houses and PSA's Joe Orlando who were sent complimentary copies. Funny, I sent a detailed note with Joe's, explaining why the cover cards were graded by SGC, AND NOT PSA!!!! What was the use? I still haven't heard from him in a year's time.

The fact it's an E-book on a CD was the only compromise, but that has turned out to be a major stumbling block to collectors who do not wish to put up with the hassle of inserting the disk into their disk drive, and reading it on their computer. Worse, the disk drive is also becoming a thing of the past, along with CDs. You can still order a disk drive for your computer, as an extra attachment.;) Oh well, I guess I did not think collectors would suffer well with Amazon's print-on-demand price of $95. The digital download version sold via Amazon for Kindle devices have shown steady sales.

Be that as it may, the niche of regional/food cards, coins, et al is a truly enjoyable, spirited, very competitive, and challenging pursuit for the "hard to get", and sometimes the impossible. Most of them are exotic conversation pieces, after you've first shown one to a fellow collector, and watched his face. Very telling.

David, your 1958 Hires Root Beer test issue Willie Mays is a tour de force---truly a regal Say Hey beauty. He looks so happy in the photo, a must with a great Willie Mays card.

Well, gotta go to work. Best regards, David, my fellow collecting warrior, and to all youse guys who have a special taste for the regionals. Thanks too, for initiating the thread.:D

I've always preferred the Hires sets without the tabs. I just like the look.

I don't know why but I really like the Canadian versions of the Post cards:

Many of these items in my case are among my prized regionals
 
1 Attachment(s)
I posted this photo last July on the still current Mickey Mantle thread. Figured since these are mostly regionals, it would fit the thread.;)

Many of these items in my case are among my prized regionals: a pair of 1962 JELL-O mint unfolded boxes, a pair of 1961 Bazooka panels, and an SGC 50 1954 Stahl-Meyer Franks Mickey Mantle. The latter's technical grade would easily cause one to woefully underestimate this magnificent beauty. For the centered Mantle aficionado, it is 50-50, 50-50 dead-centered, extremely unusual for a 54-55 Stahl-Meyer.

On top of the case is another 1960 Post Cereal Grape Nuts Flakes Mickey Mantle, the first one SGC ever graded. They were willing to give it a try, but knew it would be ever so close to the boundaries of its over-sized card holder. It JUST fit, and I must say looks awesome.

The 1966 Dexter Press Mickey Mantle was, according to fellow collector Keith Olbermann, only available at Yankee Stadium vendor stands. He personally saw them available there that wretched year. The original 1962 Salada Coins ad is not rare, but it is beautiful, and I highly prize it.

Love to see a close up of the Stahl Meyer - that is one TOUGH card - add to that the condition it's in and make that near impossible!!
