i forgot all about these! i recall going to my buddy mike's house where there were always twinkies in abundant supply. we would always check out the bottom of the boxes to see if our favorite players were there then i'd help him cut them out. ah, good times.

Each year the designs evolved a bit but never really explored any creative innovations. The Hostess cards were a great showcase for the pre-Photoshop airbrushing skills of the time, as seen in these examples of Buddy Bell and Dennis Eckersley and the Catfish Hunter card above.

Are they really worthless if they were cut out? I still have several of these some kid gave me in elementary school. They are in fine shape other than the fact they were cut out. Some big names on there too.
