    1950 Drake's Cakes Baseball Partial Set (14/36). The '55 bowman baseball set is much admired for the television concept but it was hardly a first. The 36-card Drake's Cakes "TV Baseball Series" issued some five years prior that advertising Oatmeal and Jumble Cookies blazed the television screen trail but are usually overlooked for their elevated level of scarcity and players roster limited to players from the boroughs of New York. These black and white collectibles are among the most highly prized of the '50's regional issues.
