1979 Hostess Baseball

By Patrick Mondout

Hostess released another set of cards as cut-out panels on the back of their tasty products. It would prove to be their last. A generation of dentists let out a collective sigh of relief. The cards are substantially similar to the '78 Hostess set with the main difference being the position of the photograph relative to the text.

Carl Yastrzemski must have had contentious relations with every card company not named Topps. Kellogg's had trouble getting him signed on for their sets and he is noticeably absent from this Hostess set.

A brief description of this set is here. You can learn more about Hostess cards on the page for the 1975 set.
