The Official Post War Regional, Food, Snack and Beverage Thread

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!
