When I was a kid, Topps was pretty much the only game in town. There were other cards, but to me they weren't "real" baseball cards. Only Topps was the real deal (that may be why the whole Topps monopoly doesn't really bother me). So I didn't pay too much attention to the 3D cards that Kelloggs put out. And the Hostess cards, well, they were on the bottom of a box of Ho Hos. Again, not real cards. So I didn't bother with them either.
Not to long ago as I was browsing through Ebay, I saw this card....
...one of my favorite Cubs, Bill Buckner, from Hostess' 1977 set. I never saw the card before. And in looking at it, I realized that I have misjudged Hostess. Their cards were the real deal, too.
Because Hostess was just as bad at doctoring up hats as Topps was. Buckner came to the Cubs from the Dodgers before the 1977 season, so Hostess had to take a picture of Buckner as a Dodger and change it into a Cubs hat.
Their "artist" would have made Topps proud.
