Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>I've only got one post-war bread card - this semi-beater miscut '47 Bond Bread Joe D., not that I'm complaining (I wonder who the player was above him.) But I like the issue and bread cards in general. I don't get to see too many, so if they got yeast, let's see 'em.<br /><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z26/pspec/Bond_Bread_47_DiMaggio.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Anthony -- with cards like that cookies count as bread. This thread is officially expanded to include all things doughy.

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Jason, that may be a beater but I think Doerr is a sought after card from that set.<br /><br />Rob, great shape considering they're labels. Anyone ever seen a display sheet they were supposed to be inserted into?

Posted By: <b>Rob Dewolf</b><p>Thanks, Paul. The Mitchell and Lemon are about the nicest bread labels I've seen. I took all three to the National and submitted them to SGC. I'll post what grades they get when I get them back, probably around Thanksgiving (I probably just cost myself a grade-and-a-half).<br /><br />I saw the display sheet just once, at one of the Cincinnati shows in the early '80s. I'm sure it could have been had for about $50.

Posted By: <b>Jason Carota</b><p>I actually had quite the time getting the Doerr card. It was a BIN/Best Offer on eBay a while back. The seller and I exchanged quite a few offers/counter-offers before a deal was struck. Johnny Pesky seems to be hard to find form the Tip Top set as well.
