1910 D322 Tip-Top Bread Overview

d322-10-leifieldThe 1910 D322 Tip-Top Bread set honored the 1909 World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates. The bread was produced by Ward-Mackey Company, which also distributed several other trading cards with their products.

The short set includes only Pirates with the exception of a 24th card of a Tip-Top boy and the final card, which was Pittsburgh’s home, Forbes Field.

Among those represented also included team president Barney Dreyfuss, secretary William Locke, and manager Fred Clarke. The real highlight of the set is a card of Hall of Famer Honus Wagner.

Tip-Top Bread would return later with other cards and collectibles in the future. 11 years later, White’s Bakery in Baltimore distributed a set of Tip Top cards featuring Baltimore Orioles. In 1939, they produced pins of Yankees star Joe DiMaggio. Years later, they produced a massive 163-card set in 1947. Finally, in 1952, the company created bread labels with baseball players on them.

In addition to checklist, the backs also included a special offer at the bottom. For 50 Tip-Top Bread labels, collectors could receive an entire set of the cards free of charge.
