Default 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!!!

Bobby Locke 1967 Seattle Popcorn card. These were stadium giveaways that came with a box of popcorn at Seattle's Sick Stadium.

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!

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.

I'm putting together the 1963 Post and Jello baseball sets, and have them together in a binder. It's a project I am loving! Quite a few holes in my binder but this page is complete:
