Cynicalbuddha's Top 100 #66 Hostess In Memorandum

If you haven't heard Hostess has filed for bankruptcy again.  Most likely they won't go totally under and you'll still be able to get your Twinkies, but it got me thinking of all those great Hostess food issues of yore and one of my favorite Robin Yount rookie cards I have.

#66 on the Top 100

1975 Hostess King Don's full box Robin Yount Rookie card with Andy Messersmith and Al Oliver.

I also have full boxes of 1976 and 1977 Yount's.  A great box with a great rookie card.

Here's the back.

 A close up of the panel.

And close ups of the cards.
One of my favorite rookie oddballs I have and I have this mounted and framed in my man cave.  


  1. So cool. And lots of memories.

    I've got to get me that Messersmith card.

  2. I have some of the hostess stuff. I'm an in between guy. I don't have whole boxes nor did I cut out the individual cards. I saved the panels. One problem with that is that they've suffered condition-wise over time. I still think getting Ding Dongs and Ho-hos plus cards had to be a highlight of my youth.
