1909 J=K Candy Overview

J=K2

The 1909 J=K Candy set includes two different types of cards. These issues were printed on the sides of candy boxes, which may be part of the reason they went uncatalogued by Jefferson Burdick in his American Card Catalog. That, however, is unlikely since Burdick did catalog the E271 Darby Chocolates cards, which were also printed on boxes.

One type is a black and white image while the other is in color. Both types contain a player image and his name and team printed along the bottom. The picture is in a decorative frame border with somewhat rounded corners.

The black and white cards are considered Type 1 while the color cards are Type 2. The black and white cards are smaller.

Both versions are incredibly rare.

1909 J=K Candy Checklist

100 cards are believed to be in the set. However, nowhere near that amount of different cards have been found. No fully confirmed checklist exists for this set but here is the checklist of known cards.
