I think the hostess cards were licensed from topps.


The other big producer of small sets, mostly for point of purchase promotion was MSA.
Very interesting. Are there any off the top of your head where the front of the cards look exactly the same as the Topps issued cards? Like how the BKs look the same as the Topps issued?

And except for the logo, 84 Nestles. Which may all be sheet cut.


I had order forms for them, but it seemed expensive for a Topps set. The ads and order forms showed normal Topps cards.

Oh, and the 1980 Mrs Butterworth cards were Topps cards in a special pack with a header card.

I haven't seen enough of them out of the pack and provable to know if there are any differences. I had a bunch of packs at one point.

I am not aware of any 1984 Nestle/Topps cards that were released in any way other than in the 132 card sheet. I have several of these sets that were "professionally" cut from the sheets post release, and while 2 of my sets are very nicely cut (better than Topps could in the early to mid 80s) the third is not quite as nicely cut (along the lines of a typical Topps cut job in the 80s).

No difference on any of the 1980 cards (there were other companies as well) which came in those type of packs. The only difference is the cover card

Interesting wrinkle on the Steinbrenner controversy. I read that Steinbrenner had a fit because Piniella was his son's favorite player, though George liked him a lot too. His son, Hank, is the Yankees CEO now.

I'll have to check when I get home but Yankees yearbooks in 1977-78 might have a list of BK stores in NY metro.

In 1978 BK also produced a nice Yankees poster with drawings of each players headshot. They were give-aways like the cards, quite a few are still around.

Ryan- This hardly news because I'm sure you have it but the 1985 Hostess Braves set was done by Topps.
