1923-24 McLauchlan Owen Sound Greys Overview

McLauchlan was a Canadian candy company that produced this rare set of black and white cards. The cards featured players from the Owen Sound Greys, a local junior hockey team.

A unique feature of the card that helped them to stand out was that player names on the front were printed in large, bold red lettering over the player’s picture. More traditionally, player names were generally printed in blank ink below an image in a border area. The red ink names help distinguish this issue from others of the same time period.

Overall, the cards are extremely rare. PSA has graded only a few of them.
