1954 Johnston Cookies
John Cooney

This is an interesting set from 1954 that featured Milwaukee Braves players.

John Cooney was actually a coach for the Braves in 1954.

These cards were distributed with packs of cookies and have a wax-like feel.

Through a mail-in offer on the back of the card, you could also get a display to hold the cards. It was sort of a template-like display where each card would show through an opening.

It's kind of a weird set but a pretty cool one nonetheless.
