(LOT 68)
1955 Johnston's Cookies Braves Folder Set of 35 Cards on 6 Panels including Aaron, Spahn, Mathews & Thomson

RARE FOLDERS SET!!! In the final year of Braves Johnston's Cookies cards, the size and format were changed. The 35 cards in this years set were issued in 6 fold-out panels of 6 cards each, including a double print of Andy Pafko. As in 1954, cards are numbered by uniform number, except those of the team equipment manager, trainer and road secretary. The cards measure 2-7/8" x 4" Individually. You could get these panels in boxes of Cookies or they could be ordered thru Johnston's Cookies for 5 cents a panel. Considered by many as the scarcest of all the Johnston Cookie issues. The offered 6 Panel Set are all addressed on the label to Eugene Barutha from Iola, Wisconsin, meaning these panels were all purchased by the mail in offer. A total of 6 Panels creating the entire 35 card set in overall NM condition. Some of the key players are: Hank Aaron, Warren Spahn, Eddie Mathews, Joe Adcock, Lew Burdette, Andy Pafko, Chuck Tanner & Bobby Thomson. Tremendous find offered here issued 66 years ago.
