Really great research, Charley Brown.

My very first BB cards I collected were the 48 cards in the 1947 Bond Bread issue. In 1947, my sister and I were pulling them from Bond Bread packages.
My recollection of this is very clear. Between the kids in our neighborhood, we had 100's of them and we were able to determine that 48 cards comprised
a complete set. These cards were available in the Spring/Summer of 1947 thru 1948.

However, I never saw any of the Jackie Robinson cards in our area. We grew up in Hillside (NJ) which was only 25 miles from NYC. So, as you stated, the
initial release of the Jackie Robinson card(s) must have been strictly limited to NYC.

Thanks Ted! I believe that the distribution of the Jackie Robinson cards were limited to predominantly black neighborhoods.

Out of curiosity, did markets ever sell prepackaged bread by the slice?

This card was listed on eBay tonight: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1947-BOND-BR...16.m2516.l5255

The Cardozo Market stamp is the second I've seen. The address puts Cardozo Market quite close to Howard University, which further verifies the availability of these cards in major cities. The stamp leads me to believe that the 2 groups of 6 were also distributed by the store owners, as was the first. However, what I'm trying to figure out is if the Cardozo Market store owner received the cards direct from Bond Bread to distribute to customers, or if he/she opened packages of bread to sell by the slice, and then stamped the card.

Hi Shaun

OK, our small town didn't have any black neighborhoods, and that may explain why the Jackie Robinson cards were not available to us.


" Out of curiosity, did markets ever sell prepackaged bread by the slice ? " ..........

Not in our area....the markets in our town only had the full bread loaf packages. I was lucky in that my Father and my Uncle owned restaurants
which bought a lot of Bond bread. Hence, I collected a lot of these cards, and I still have them. Here's an original 1947 BOND BREAD wrapper......

Incredible pieces Ted. Were the set of 48 cards wrapped in individual plastic packages, or were they loose in the bread packaging? Do you have the full set from the original cards you obtained from your father and uncle?

1st....I'm not sure, but the cards were not loose inside the bread loaf (otherwise they would have had "bread stains" on them). It's almost 70 years ago,
and my recollection is somewhat fuzzy on how these cards were inserted. Perhaps, my sister remembers..

2nd....I have the 44 baseball cards. I must have traded away the 4 boxers years ago.

Timely bump due to discussion regarding the Bond Bread's, particularly the Jackie Robinson RC. Too bad the pictures are all gone as they made the research even more compelling
