Years in Production
Kansas City, Missouri
Dornhoffer’s Meats was one of the most successful meat retailers in the U.S. from the late 19th century up through most of the 1970’s.
In the summers of 1968 and 1969, Dornhoffer’s included a baseball card with every purchase of hot dogs sold at most retail supermarkets
For both years, the cards were not distributed inside the packaging but instead were handed out at the checkout counter for qualifying purchases.
There do exist a small number of variations, which included the addition of the retailer logo on some cards. Grand Union, A&P, and Shopwell are known to exist, though there may be others.
Dornhoffer’s Meats was sold to a competing meat provider in 1978.
