1978 Hostess Baseball

As if we needed another reason to stroke our taste buds with their tasty treats, Hostess tempted us with their forth annual set of cards printed on the boxes of their sugary products. This 150 card set featured a rookie card of Eddie Murray. The design features the largest photos yet in the Hostess series.

Unlike the past two years, the cards were no longer available on the back of individual packs of Twinkies, so you had to convince mom to buy the larger boxes of their hyperactivity-inducing snacks.

Here's a checklist of 1978 Hostess cards. A brief description of this set is here. You can learn more about Hostess cards on the page for the 1975 set.
