1927 Middy Bread Reprint Complete Set 8 - NM/MT
The 1927 Middy Bread Baseball Card set is one of the most unusual reprint sets ever issued. The 1927 Middy Bread baseball cards consist of photographs of the original cards, which were 2 ¼" x 4" black and white cutouts of the St. Louis Browns and St. Louis Cardinals. This reprint set was issued in 1992 and measures 2 ½" x 3 ½". Both sets have blank backs and an advertisement for Middy Bread on the front.
Star cards that can be found in this set include: George Sisler, Frank Frisch, Grover Alexander, and Jim Bottomley.
The original cards can cost up to $600 each in Near Mint condition and are very difficult to find.
