Cowboy Cookie & Grub

From Jim Wohlford's 1985 Topps card: "Jim owns a bakery in Atascadero, California, called 'The Cowboy Cookie & Grub Co."

I thought this sounded interesting, so I looked it up on the internet. Turns out I'm not the first to think to do that. An reporter did the same thing, in this undated article about cards. His reporting discovered that it was now owned by a woman named Kamber Doucette who had heard that the bakery had been owned by a ballplayer. The article also noted that you could now order online.

Since that article was published, the website expired and Kamber Doucette now runs a pre-school, so I guess that little bit of baseball history is no more.
