1954 Johnston Cookies Baseball Cards
The 1954 Johnston Cookies baseball card set is a 35 card set that features players from the Milwaukee Braves. The cards feature a color photograph of the Braves player, interestingly, each posing in front of a chainlink fence. Below the player photo is the player's name printed twice, both in standard and facsimile autograph forms, as well as a Milwaukee Braves logo shadowing the signature.
The cards are numbered according to the player's uniform number, with the only exceptions being Dr. Charles Lacks and Joseph Taylor, the only two non-players in this set. Also, the Hank Aaron card is listed as number 5, which was his uniform number before he switched to it to his signature 44.
Oddly, the Bobby Thomson card was withdrawn due to an injury that year, therefore the card is very rare.
