1954 Johnston Cookies Complete Set Uncut Sheet
Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $4,312.50
1954 Johnston Cookies 42-card uncut production sheet includes the complete set of 35 cards in the series, plus 7 double-printed cards. Johnston Cookies are virtually unheard of in uncut sheet form. In fact, this is the only uncut sheet of Johnston Cookies we have ever handled or seen. The 1954 Johnston Cookies series was regionally issued in Milwaukee, with one card included in each package of Johnston Cookies. The set is comprised exclusively of Milwaukee Braves players, and is especially noted for its inclusion of Hank Aaron in his rookie season (a card which is far rarer than the 1954 Topps Aaron rookie card). Other stars include Warren Spahn (who appears twice on the sheet as one of the double-printed cards), Eddie Mathews, and the rare Bob Thomson card. After his early season injury (which gave Hank Aaron a chance to play regularly), Bobby Thomson's card was withdrawn, accounting for its scarcity and high value. The sheet measures 12.5 x 27.75 inches. Bright, crisp, fresh, and with flawless colors. An extreme (possibly unique) rarity and an extraordinary sheet for display. In Excellent to Mint condition. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $4,312.50
