1955 Johnston Cookies Foldout Panel Complete Set (6 Folders, 36 Cards)
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,175.00
Complete set of thirty-six 1955 Johnston Cookies Braves cards, highlighted by Hall of Famers Hank Aaron, Warren Spahn, and Eddie Mathews, presented in their original uncut foldout "accordian-style" panel form as issued (six panels). The regionally issued 1955 Johnston Cookie set features only Milwaukee Braves players. This was the third and final year that Johnston Cookies issued cards, and the design was very different from that of the previous two years. The cards were issued in six foldout panels of six cards each (Andy Pafko was double printed). One panel was inserted in each box of cookies. In addition, panels were also made available directly from Johnston Cookies for five cents per series through a premium mail-in offer. Three of the panels in this set (Series 1, 3, 4) were sent by mail and are addressed in ink on the back as intended; the other three are not addressed. The interior cards grade as follows: Series 1 (Ex including Aaron), Series 2 (Ex-Mt), Series 3 (Ex-Mt including Spahn), Series 4 (two cards with creases, otherwise Ex), Series 5 (Ex-Mt including Mathews), Series 6 (Ex-Mt). Cards from this set are most frequently seen cut apart, as intended. This is an extremely attractive, very bright, clean, high-grade complete set from the golden years of regional issues, presented in their rare original uncut form as issued. Total 6 panels (36 cards). Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,175.00
