Mother’s Cookies is currently a brand of Kelloggs that is primarily sold on the west coast of the United States. Originally the bakery was founded in Oakland in 1914 and has been bought and sold by many different private and corporate entities through the years.

In the realm of baseball cards, Mother’s Cookies is best known for their team sets which were inserted into products in the markets of the certain major league teams. Throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s the Giants, Mariners, A’s, Dodgers, Padres, Astros and Rangers were all featured in sets. Additionally superstars such as Nolan Ryan, Will Clark, and Ken Griffey Jr were also given their own individual sets. The last Mother’s Cookies sets were produced in 1998 after 117 sets/promos.


In the early 1950’s Mother’s Cookies did not feature major league players, but instead players from the Pacific Coast League. Remember the Dodgers and Giants did not move west until 1958.

A’s Team Sets

Mother’s Cookies had more A’s related sets than any other team with the soaring popularity of Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco in the late 1980’s.

Angels Team Sets

Although their cross-town rivals were included in Mother’s sets from the mid-1980’s, the Angels were only included from 1993 to 1998.

Astros Team Sets

Dodgers Team Sets

Giants Team Sets

The 1983 Giants set from Mother’s was the first of their team sets in the 1980’s. They expanded leaps and bounds over the next few years to include many teams in the AL and NL West.

Mariners Team Sets

Mother's Cookies included cards of the Mariners teams from 1984 until 1998 with several sets featuring Ken Griffey Jr specifically.

Padres Team Sets

Although the Mother’s Cookies brand was very active in the San Diego market, the Padres were not included in Mother’s Cookies for a number of years.

Rangers Team Sets

From 1987 to 1992 Mother’s Cookies produced Rangers team sets. They also made a number of Nolan Ryan specific sets in the early 1990’s.
