Honoring Memorial Day and the Hostess baseball card show!

 My thoughts and prayers go out to those who have lost a loved one serving our nation and are extended to those lost serving our communities, and to everyone else who have lost loved ones too. 

My baseball card tribute to the day.

Now, let's get on to the Hostess cards. Originally, I had planned this post for tomorrow (Tuesday), but the next few weeks are IFFY. May sucked overall as a month for me, so June needs to be handled with care. Lot's of stuff going on so I want to get as much squeezed in where I can. If there are a day or two without posts, I'll be okay and I am sure that you will be too.

I made tremendous headway on my Hostess collection this year.

To the point I am getting close on the 75's, 76's, and 77's.  My 78's & 79's still need quite a bit.  I am going to showcase tonight/today my doubles. Extra's, the FOR TRADE Hostess cards from 75-77.  Every card here is available for trade. Rules are simple: trading is Hostess to Hostess, unless it is for something I just can't refuse. I expect (hope) that this post will be somewhat popular, so it will be a first come first serve basis. Shall we begin?


There are some with the Twinkie stains. However, for the most part they are cut well. Here are my NEEDS: 11 Hooten spelling variation, 37, 72, 80, 89 Rader spelling back variation, 90, 96, 97, 101, 105, 114, 144. I do have upgrade needs you can check those out on my set build section on my website.


The 1976 set is my favorite of the 5 vintage Hostess sets. I only see 1 with a stain on the front here. Here are my BLACK BACK NEEDS: 10, 12, 16, 21, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 34, 36, 37, 39, 40, 45, 49, 52, 53, 54, 58, 59, 60, 63, 66, 81, 89, 97, 98, 99, 102, 108, 111, 112, 113, 114, 115, 116, 117, 123, 141, 146, 147, 148, 149. Again, upgrades and Brown back needs are on my website.


Just a few with stains here from what I can tell.

My NEEDS: 9, 21, 23, 29, 34, 35, 36, 38, 61, 68, 69, 73, 77, 79, 104, 106, 117, 119, 124, 125, 126, 130, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 136, 138. Not many upgrades needed, but those are the website too.          My Hostess needs Page

I have these cards (scanned above) sitting right next to me, so if you want an overall condition of a specific card just ask below.

Let's trade some food issue baseball cards from the 70's!


  1. Well you know I love Hostess cards, but I have very few extras, and you throw in the pickiness over brown and black backs, I may have zero for you.

    But it was nice lookin'.

    1. I need most brown backs. I only have maybe 10 or so.
