Earthgrains/ Iron Kids Bread - Sportsmen (1997)


1997
Sportsmen
Earthgrains/ Iron Kids Bread
USA
16 cards (2 football)

These cards were included in packets of Iron Kids Bread, with the gold embossed versions being very rare.
UPDATE (19-02-2017):  Steve has left a message stating that he has a Cobi Jones card in his collection so I've added him to the checklist and I've found one more card too, so that's 14 listed.
UPDATE (13-05-2017 13:59):  Another card added, thanks to a comment below - 15 now known.

  1. I've got one of Cobi Jones from 1997. I did not see it in your list. At least the copyright says Earthgrains 1997

      Thanks for letting me know, I'll add him to the list. I also found at least one more card - baseball player Juan Gonzalez.

      Thanks for your help,

    1. Hi Terry,

      I presume there is, but I haven't seen gold ones offered for sale for a long time.

    1. Thank you for your help, I'll add these to the checklist. I don't know if they have any value. Probably the basketball, baseball and football cards have some value compared to the other cards.

  9. Hi Alan, I am new to the site. I believe there is a card missing from the 1997 Earthgrains Iron Kids List. My research shows that there should be 16 cards. The list is missing Joe Smith (BB). Also, I would be interested in purchasing Iron Kids cards from your contributers/members to complete my collection. I am missing 1997 Earthgrains Iron Kids Jennifer Azzi, Juan Gonzalez and Amy Van Dyken. I would be interested in any other Iron Kids cards. Can you advise on how to put the word out or contact some of your contributors that have stated they have those cards? Thanks.

    1. Hi Mike,

      Thanks for your help, I'll add Joe Smith. I'm sorry I don't think I can help with your search, I've only ever seen them on eBay. Perhaps other collectors will come across this list at some point and see your comment.

      Cheers,

      Alan

  10. Alan,
    The Joe Smith 1997 Iron Kids card is Basketball not Baseball. I apologize if I used incorrect abbrev. BB...I meant Basketball.
