1947 Tip Top Bread Reprints
The 1947 Tip Top Bread Baseball Card Reprint Set contains 196 cards measuring 2 1/4" by 3". The 1947 Tip Top Bread baseball cards were organized alphabetically and reprinted in 1991. The original Tip Top bread cards can cost up to $60 for a common in Near Mint condition, so purchasing the reprint cards is an affordable way to collect this set.
The easiest way to tell the reprints from the original cards is by looking at two key features on the back of the cards. The loaf of bread being displayed will be much clearer on the original cards, and will be slightly fuzzy on the reprints. Also, the word "reprint" will be written vertically on the right hand side near the upper right hand corner.
