Wallet card at a Breyer's privilege sign

First off - yesterday I mentioned that Kevin Garner, whom I had interviewed for this blog over ten years ago, recently passed away. Reader Brett Alan found a photo of the error card Garner had mentioned (at the time there was no TCDB and a lot of minor league cards were not available to see online). I've updated that post. In addition, reader Alex sent me a note that Garner is involved in another error card - he is pictured on the back of Scott Coolbaugh's 1991 Leaf card. He even got Garner to sign a couple of copies of the card.

The most common privilege signs are for sodas - usually Pepsi or Coke. Other companies paid for store signs as well. One of the more common in the northeast was Breyers ice cream. This old sign hangs over a sushi restaurant in Hoboken, NJ.



  1. Wasn't familiar with Mr. Garner, but it's sad to hear that he passed away at such a young age.

  2. I'm not prone to thievery, but even so, it would be very tempting to try and steal a sign like that :)
