    I am not finding any info on these vintage cards. They are card size and each card has a different image on one side and the bread logo on the other. Any idea where they are from and age? I have 57 cards.
    Thank You for your help on these.

    I had read a story a while back where a grocer had saved the cards from a certain bread company and don't know how many sets he had but they were worth millions when the kids found and sold them.

    I did find some of the bread cards when I did a search using the name and collector cards. Different ages and editions are what determines their value.

    This morning I had a customer come in and knew exactly what these was. She is friends with the owners daughter in school. Going back 50 years or so.

    Gases bakery, many years ago in Saginaw,Mi. Salesman cards and trading cards that came in loafs of bread.

    Thanks for asking.

    These are fun to frame. Most have printing on the back. Most look great with decorative mats / French Mat designs.

    Talk about taking the long way around finding out about these cards. Should have asked mom. Her brother when younger worked there. Knew the owners daughter, went to school with her. Knew location, open dates, what sort of breads and when they closed. Sheeesh. Moms know everything.
