Description

1979 Hostess is a 150-card set printed on the sides of boxes of various brands of Hostess snack cakes. The three-card panels (which 7 3/4" X 3 1/4") were designed to be cut-up into individual 2 1/4" X 3 1/4" cards. A custom album was available via mail order.

After a five-year run, this would be the final Hostess baseball card set. Of all the five years, it is believed that the 1979 set is the scarcest.

This set contains a rookie-year card of Ozzie Smith.
