1928-29 V128-2 Paulin’s Candies Famous Hockey Players Overview

V128-2 Paulin HockeyPaulin’s Candies produced this rare set in the late 1920s featuring a total of 90 hockey players from across Canada. This was the second set the company produced with an earlier set in 1923-24 (V128-1 set) being produced as well.

Fronts of the cards feature a black and image of a player with his name at the bottom. The back has a card number and also a special redemption offer for collectors. A complete set of 90 cards could be sent to Continental Confection, Ltd.  in exchange for a hockey stick or a box of chocolates. The offer expired on June 1, 1929.

In terms of broad appeal, this set is lacking a little bit. It largely didn’t feature professional players and included a lot of high school, college, and local teams. Even smaller colleges, including an agricultural one, are included and the set also includes some women’s hockey players. It is still a heavily-desired issue by collectors because of its rarity but people aren’t collecting this set for the big names or popular teams. While the cards were likely popular with residents of the area, they are less so in the United States.

One interesting fact is that the set includes several individual players on the Calgary Jimmies junior hockey team. Those players, however, aren’t named – the bottom caption only reads, ‘Jimmies, Calgary.’

These V128-2 cards are infinitely more difficult to find than the V128-1 set. Because they did not feature professional players, less demand was anticipated.
