The only times I would go food shopping with my mom was to search the Wonder Bread rack for the Dolphins cards.

Yeah, I've wondered about that. I've had them for years, and so far no indication of a problem. By now they're probably too dried out to be an issue (I hope!).

You would never catch me back then in a grocery store but trying to complete my '86 Jiffy Pop set lacking the Gooden haunted me all summer. I had so much of that stuff It still makes me sick.. I finally traded a complete 85 topps set for it the next year but got a 86 Donruss with it.

Definitely miss RC cola cans, opening up a box of cereal and pulling out a 3D card or looking for a good player on a box of Twinkees. Probably costs them too much to use the player or team likeness and maybe it doesn't even pay off in the long run if they did pony up the bucks?

As a huge Braves fan in my childhood, I was thunderstruck to find a package of cookies in a mom-pop grocery store with terrific cards of Braves players attached. My mother had brought me along just to lug bags, and was really annoyed that I desperately begged for the cookies. To this day, I remember the smell and taste of Johnston Cookies and wish I had been old enough in 1954 to go back to that little corner store and buy up their entire stock of them.

Bruce, you beautifully expressed one of the facets of the regional / food issue gems---"I had so much of that stuff It still makes me sick..". I definitely brought out that concept in my book on immediate post-war regional / food issues, NEVER CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN. For me, it was Kellogg's Raisin Bran. Their 3-D cards were beautiful enticements, but it took me 40 years before I found them appetizing again!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I truly miss the gorgeous regional / food issues as well. The major trading card companies have the exclusive rights to produce cards. Furthermore, they have paid the piper handsomely for the rights to show any of their respective team emblems. I understand those licenses are flat out prodigiously EXPENSIVE. Panini secured the rights from the Mickey Mantle family to produce cards of him. Sadly, Panini does not have the licenses to produce cards with New York Yankee emblems, rendering them as a beautiful Bengal Tiger with its teeth yanked out. Appalling.

Steve, I would have loved to have interviewed you for my book on immediate post-war regional / food issues, NEVER CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN. I find your remembrances of the Johnston Cookie cards enchanting, as I also the perfect reprints you ever so skillfully made and gave me as a present about 3 years ago. Thank you ever so much!!!!! I was so touched; they're magnificent.

Yeah, you are so right. If we all could be granted three places to go back in time to get certain cards from some non-gum promotion that were usually not easy to get at the time the window was open for purchase.

Thanks for sharing your eloquent memories, brother. Have a great day, sir.

My dad hoarded boxes of Post Cereal in 1990. There were literally dozens, possibly hundreds of boxes stacked in his card room. At first, it was amazing. My brothers and I had an endless supply of Lucky Charms, Honeycomb, Sugar Crisp, etc. I haven't eaten any of those since, and probably never will.
