1947 D323 Tip Top Bread Baseball Cards
The 1947 Tip Top Bread Baseball Card set includes 163 cards measuring 2 ¼” by 3”. The set consists of regional issues. The card fronts feature black-and-white photos with a white strip located at the bottom listing the players name and position.
The 1947 Tip Top Bread set consists of many players who played in the talent-lean WWII seasons. The Tip Top Bread card backs feature an advertisement illustration, and one of the easiest ways to tell these cards apart from their reprints is by looking at the loaf of bread featured on the back of the card. In the reprinted set this will be fuzzy, where as on the original cards the loaf of bread will be clearer.
Some key hall-of-famers for this year are: #46 Yogi Berra, #57 Phil Rizzuto, #89 Warren Spahn and #149 Honus Wagner.
