1927 Lambert and Butler World of Sport Set Overview

1927 Lambert Butler World of Sport Hockey

In 1927, Lambert and Butler Cigarettes distributed a UK set called the World of Sport. Like other similar sets of the era, the set detailed a variety of different sports around the globe.

Lambert and Butler actually produced several trading card sets. A 1926 multi-sport issue called Who’s Who in Sports actually included a rookie card of golfer Bobby Jones.

Similar, the 1927 set is a multi-sport set. While many of the sports are outside of the big four known to American collectors, one of them did make it as Canada’s Montreal Victorias hockey team is included. And while many of the other sports in the set may not be all that popular with U.S. collectors, several other key sports are represented, including golf, tennis, and boxing.

The hockey card is No. 9 in the set. Other notable cards include tennis stars Bill Tilden and Helen Wills, as well as swimmer Johnny Weismuller.
