1929 Leader Novelty Candy Overview


The 1929 Leader Novelty Candy set is a rare issue. The set checklist continues to grow with new issues being discovered on occasion.

The fronts of the cards include a color-tinted image of a player with only one color ink being used (the cards come in various ink colors but only one is used per card). Along with the player picture, a replica signature is also included along with the player’s team.

Images used for the cards were taken from the R316 Kashin set. Backs are completely blank.

Occasionally, some of the boxes that were used for the candy/cards make their way out in to the public as well. Those boxes included a unique baseball scene.
