Description

This 1954 Johnston Cookies Milwaukee Braves complete set of (35) cards is the second of three annual issues from the Milwaukee, Wisconsin company. Released on a regional trial run, this series also contains the rookie card of Hank Aaron and the withdrawn #34 Bobby Thomson shortprint. Measuring approximately 2 x 3-7/8, this high-grade assembly has an average grade of (EX-MT) with some better and others lesser. Key cards include #5 Aaron (EX-MT), #21 Spahn (EX), #34 Thomson (EX-MT), and #41 E. Mathews (NM). These mostly portrait shots exhibit vibrant colors and razor-sharp corners, a true feat for the regionalist.
