1922 Schapira Brothers Candy Overview

1926 Big Show Candy Schalk.jpg

Schapira Brothers was a candy company based in New York. In 1922, they distributed a set of baseball cards inside their packages of candy.

The cards were a premium item found inside with the candy and featured a player’s image in black and white one one side and a blank back. The player’s replica signature was also included on the card.

Today, the cards are rare and expensive. A checklist has been developed but new cards continue to surface.

These weren’t the first cards made by the company, either. Schapira Brothers Candy also created a set of six Babe Ruth cards that were printed on the outside of their boxes in the previous year. Interestingly enough, Ruth is not confirmed to be in this set.

Here are pictures of the known cards.
