1986 Dorman's Cheese

Card Manufacturer: Dorman;s Cheese
Card Set: Dorman's Super Star Limited Edition
Year: 1986
Card Number: NNO
Card Type: Food Issue

If you've read any of my blogs you know I'm a huge fan of oddball food issue cards of all types.  Dorman's was the first cheese company to put pieces of paper between the slices of it's package cheese slices. 1986 marked the year that Dorman's was bought by Beatrice Foods. I'm not sure if these where issued before the company was bought or not. I do believe the Dorman's name now rests with the DCI Cheese Company in Richfield, Wisconsin.

According to the Standard Catalog these cards were available in specially marked packaged of cheese slices. Each panel had two players and are perferated down the middle.  There were 20 players featured on these unnumbered cards with 10 panels to collect.  The set also inlcuded Reggie Jackson, Don Mattingly, George Brett, and Ryan Sandberg to name a few.  Robin shares his card with Willie McGee.  The cards were produced by MSA and they used the same airbrushed photo for a lot of their food issues.
