The D327 Holsum Bread set was distributed by the Weil Baking Company of New Orleans, and features 80 cards identical in design to the E121 Series of 80.  Each loaf of Holsum Bread (a brand that survives even today) contained one card.  Today, Holsum bread cards are very difficult to come by, with just over 150 examples graded by both PSA and SGC, the majority at the lower end of the register.

There are two different versions of the D327 cards, characterized by a subtle difference in the printing of the reverse.  This example is of the "Type 2" variety.  

Graded GOOD 30 by SGC, this example of Hall of Famer George Sisler is remarkably scarce, achieving its technical grade largely due to a clear tape mark on the reverse of the card.
