Default Hostess Master Checklist

I've searched through the net54 archives and wasn't able to find anything. Can someone share a link to a master Hostess checklist if one exists? In particular, I'm looking for information on panel variations. It seems that the L-shaped panels were printed on Cup Cakes boxes but I'm wondering if there was an L-shaped panel variation for every panel in every year or only certain panels in certain years? For example, if there was a L-panel, I have always found the straight panel equivalent but there are some straight panels I have never seen an L-panel for.

Also, it is well documented that the individually wrapped Twinkies had black bars/bold print on the back but I have seen next to nothing documented regarding the individually wrapped Suzy-Q cards which also have a black bar on back but came on a much larger card stock. As an identifier, the black bar is much further away from the player's name and stats than on a Twinkies card. Does a checklist of the Suzy-Qs exist? The only one I have as an example is a 1977 Rick Monday.

Joe, I do not know about a master checklist existing, but I have learned something already from your posts. For years, I have been trying to understand with 77s why I had some cards stained just as Twinkies cards very often are, but were missing the black bars that the Twinkies cards have. Suzy-Q cards would explain this. Is there a way you can post a picture of the back of these two cards also?

Default Hostess Master Checklist

Here’s one for sale:

It seems the Suzy Q panels may have only been released in 1977.

Gotta say, the 2018 Suzy Qs are basically Devil Dogs under the Hostess brand..nothing like the 1970s-80's versions which had a deep, moist texture and taste...the two pack was my favorite from the college dorm vending machine!

Thank you Joe, this is no doubt what I have run across with some(Suzy-Q?) cards appearing to be Twinkies but cut too close and not appearing to have the black bar.

My SCD VBC mentions that the cards were found not only on Twinkies, but on Hostess cupcakes also. It mentions that the numbering was as follows: 1-30 and 111-150 are Twinkies panels and 31-135 are Cupcake panels. So an overlap would appear to be from 111 to 135.

However, there is no mention of Suzy-Q in the VBC. I did find an image of a complete box of Suzy Qs and there are no black bars present.

Still none of this explains why the two Monday cards have the bars in different spots.

I've been battling the 1977 Hostess set since it originally came out. The problem is the individual cards. There are six different formats in which they were released. Some cards were issued in multiple formats base on the product (Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Cupcakes, Sno Balls etc).

My master collection is close to complete, missing some of the extra wide panels from the high number cards.

You can see the frustration in this thread
http://www.net54baseball.com/showthr...s+case+hostess

That being said, the L shaped panels are not for every panel. Only selected ones. I'll have to check what I have when I get home but I have the run of them from 1976. I haven't tried the later years. Off the top of my head I would say there are maybe a dozen panels that come L shaped. All of the L shaped are also available in straight panels.

I have not noticed either a premium or a markdown for the L Shaped panels. Set collectors hate them because they break up the symmetry.

Try being out here in California. All of the great stuff I grew up eating, like Yodels and Ring Dings, have completely different names in the supermarket. Things like Ho-Ho's and Ding Dongs and lord knows what else. I'm like, "WTF is going on???!!!!"
