(Ripley's) Believe It or Not! Fleer - 1970 Colonial Bread - 1970 Kilpatrick's Bread - 1970 Rainbo Bread - 1970
Notes: In 1970, Fleer manufactured four distinct sets based on "Ripley's Believe It or Not" facts. The first, unnumbered, set was distributed in boxes and packs (though the Fleer name and logo does not appear on the cards). With the same images but with card numbers and promotional logos and text added, the 84 cards were issued as bread-package inserts for Rainbo, Colonial, and Kilpatrick brands. The Kilpatrick's set is the most common of the three bread sets; the Fleer box-and-pack distribution is noted for a large selection of short-prints and extra prints. The checklist below is derived from Steve Lillard's Kilpatrick col- lection, and we assume (but have not confirmed) that the numbering was the same for the other bread-issue sets. Steve (many thanks for the list!) states, "No matter how you look at it you would have to eat a lot of bread to collect the Rainbo, Colonial, and Kilpatrick bread inserts." I counter with, "Only the upper crust of society had enough time to loaf around trying to collect the full set." Again, the Fleer version of the card set did not have numbers printed on the cards.
Box: xx packs of 5 cards. Common sets: approx. xxxx per box if collation were perfect.
