Default 1947 BOND BREAD and its "imposters"....show us your cards ?

Posted By: Ted Zanidakis

I haven't forgotten you, guy. The 1947 BOND BREAD Jackie Robinson set of 13 cards was indeed issued in 1947.
These cards are the exact same size (2 1/4 x 3 1/2) as the general 1947 BOND BREAD set of 48 cards. However,
it's my understanding that the JRobby cards were never inserted in the BOND BREAD packages....therefore, there
was not a need to bevel their corners....so they remained SQUARE.

They were promotional cards honoring JRobby that were issued by Bond Bread. I have heard that they were most
likely distributed in the greater NYC area. We never saw them in our neighborhood stores in NJ.
