This number outline is very helpful, thank you. Perhaps they were Cupcakes as the SCD says and not Suzy Q's. Not sure where the Suzy Q thing started but when I purchased my Rick Monday variation it is what was in the title like the one Probstein is selling.

Edit: But is the #s 31-135 for cupcakes from 1977? That wouldn't make sense for the Monday card because it's number 30.

Edit #2: Here's a thought...maybe BOTH of my Monday cards are Twinkies. Maybe there were packages wrapped with a single twinkie and packages wrapped with two? The stains on the one def look like chocolate though.

The brown backs are seemingly random and they are tough. I basically stumbled across mine.

I am still confused also about what is what with the 77s.

I recently bought a lot advertised as Twinkies, but I do not feel they are Twinkies, but Cupcakes. The cards from the lot all fall within the # range of 32-132, which matches what the SCD mentions about the Cupcake cards. Attached are the backs of 3 different Lou Brock cards ....all cards are the same width. The first is the back of the regular Hostess card. The second card is not a Hostess or Twinkies card (at least according to the #) but has the black bar visible on bottom edge, and staining on card. The final back appears to be the Cupcake lot...the bar is present, but the font size on the back is significantly smaller than the Twinkies or Hostess font.

So what is this Brock card...could it be a Cupcake with a different font, or from a whole other product?

So, your Monday card would not be a Cupcake card as it likely does not exist in a Cupcake version(based on the # ranges). It still does not match the back of the Suzy-Q cards present on the complete box....possibly a 5th product? (1. Hostess, 2. Twinkies, 3. Cupcakes, 4. Suzy-Q, 5. ????). As you mention, it could be a Twinkie product wrapped differently.

The Bold Type cards are Twinkies for 1977, or to put it more simply, they had or have black bars on them.

From numbers 135-150, the only cards that exist are cards with the bars farther away from the cards. Because of this, when they are cut to size they are harder to find. Not exactly sure what product they were in, but I do Know that it wasn't widely distributed. If you find cards that are bold type from 135-150, those are the Twinkie cards and they have or had bars on them.

I also know that some of the cards from 1977 were included in Vending Machines as well. These are the ones which are vertical shaped. Often you can find strips of these with cards being placed vertically.

Here are the fronts and backs of 3 77 Hostess Brocks for comparison. There may be other differences but I frankly got tired of looking for them.
