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

Posted By: Ted Zanidakis

You have made my day with this statement of yours......

"" Hate to cause confusion, but the cards were sold in 4 boxes of 12 each as "Sports Star Subjects". ""


On the contrary....no "confusion" here, guy. Indeed, confirmation of the SQUARE cards being issued as a
set of their own. It's been my understanding that the SQUARE cards were 1st available in 1949, and into
the 1950's in small boxes. Until now, I have referred to the SQUARE cards as an "unknown" issue. Thanks
to you, now we can identify them as the "Sports Star Subjects" issue.....NOT a "1947 Bond Bread" issue.


Shown here are 3 of the SQUARE cards. Two of which are the BB/Movie Star cards....Lou Boudreau/Ingrid
Bergen and Johnny Mize/Victor Mature.

Also, note the difference in the width of the Bond Bread Jansen card vs its SQUARE card counterpart. The
Bond Bread cards are consistently 1/16 th of an inch narrower.

Does anyone know whether the same actors appear with the same athletes, or are different combos possible?

Also, at the National a few years ago I purchased a rounded corners card of George Raft (actor); were there actor cards issued as well in 1947 in bread?

Can you please post F & B scans of the the George Raft card ?

Also, match the width of this Raft card with any SQUARE card. Is its width different, or is it the same ?

In 1947, in our neighborhood in NJ, we had 100's of the 1947 Bond Bread cards. I definitely recall that we
never found any movie star cards in the Bond bread packages. I have never seen or heard of any ROUND
cornered cards of movie stars.
Perhaps, they were inserted in bread packages out west ? ?

I don't own that perforated card Ted, it's one of Shoeless Joe's cards. I was just posting the image from his listing of it on eBay, as I had never seen one like it before.

Ted,
Nice thread as usual. I have a couple of ???? Did the cards come one to a loaf? Is there any way to know whether these cards were "out" bf the 1947 Tip Top bread cards? Thanks.

Jeff

Now I'm really confused. I assumed that the square corner cards and the perforated cards were two entirely separate sets. But Ted seems to be lumping them together in his posts. Is there any reason to believe these are both actually from the same set?

Now I have to dig it out of the cupboard.

I can't compare it with the square cornered cards; I don't own any. It is exactly the same size as my round cornered Joe Louis, Jake LaMotta and Marcel Cerdan cards. Here is a picture of Louis and Raft side by side. Same white stock backs too.
