  • Hostess baseball cards

    Who remembers the baseball cards that were on the bottom of Hostess Ding-dongs and Ho-Ho's boxes. I used to collect them back in the 1970s.

    Indeed I do... still have a few of them.

      Wow! Those are the ones! You didn't cut them out like the rest of the kids?

        I've got a few of those, but as stated they are indeed cut from the box
        "I believe in the soul ... the small of a woman's back, the hanging curveball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter."

          I cut mine off the bottom of the box but kept them together. I looked through my collection and I have a Van Hayes (Woo-hoo) together with a Robin Yount. I used to bug my Mom to buy those instead of Tastykakes just for the cards.
          Let's rid baseball of the pestilence of the DH now and forever!

            I checked out the rest of your website. I forgot about the Kellogg's cereal cards. Those were awesome as well.

              I absolutely cut mine out. The link I sent I found on the Web. The cards I REALLY liked as a kid were the Kellogg ones that came in some cereals. They had sort of a fuzzy 3-D background. Really cool.

                The Kelloggs cards were great. My brother and I would send away for the set every year.
                It was also cool when a magazine like Dynamite or Hot Dog would come out with a small sheet of cards. It was a bummer when the players were not superstars.

                  I used to get cards off Mac N Cheese boxes. Anybody else remember those?

                    No I don't remember those? Do you have any links we can look at?
