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

Posted By: Ted Zanidakis

You are assuming something from my above scan of the 4 cards. I did not say that the BB/Movie Star
combo cards were issued at the same time as the SQUARE card issue (that Adam W. identified as the
"Sports Star Subjects" issue).
Judging from the consistent discoloration of these perforated dual-cards, I'd say they were printed and
issued in the 1950's.

This brings up another mystery regarding the SQUARE cards that we haven't discussed yet. And, that
is the "warehouse find" of 1000's of these cards in the early 1980's by David Festberg.

I think the cards in this find are REPRINTS that may never have been in circulation. Until, of course,
David started selling them.
The cardboard that these cards are printed on is not as thick as the original cards. And, the printing
quality and contrast of these cards is inferior to the original cards.
