D380 Clement Brothers Bread Overview

D380 Clement BackD380 Alpermann.jpgD380 Clement Brothers BreadPrinted in 1909 and 1910, the Clement Brothers set is a black and white issue featuring both minor league and major league baseball players. Two different types of designs are featured, although they are similar.

One type displays a player image in an oval while the other is in a rectangular shape. Both have the player’s name, position, and team printed at the bottom and both have the same advertisement on the back. Players with the oval picture are minor leaguers from Rochester and players with the rectangular frame are both major and minor leaguers. All minor leaguers were from the local Rochester team.

One interesting thing is that images included a mix of lithographic artwork and actual photographs. The Type 1 cards with the oval-shaped Rochester minor leaguers utilized actual photographs as did the Rochester cards with the rectangular frame in Type 2. Some of the major league player images will look familiar to many pre-war collectors as they were the same ones used in other issues, such as American Caramel’s E90-1 set.

The backs state that one card is included in each loaf of Clement Brothers bread. Backs also included a brief advertisement for Clement’s Pies, calling them, ‘Like Mother’s’, and stating that there were 22 different types available. In addition, as was printed on the back, Clement Brothers was located in Rochester, NY and featured Rochester players.

For a small issue, there were many big names included, such as Hall of Famers Ty Cobb and Addie Joss.
