1929 United Tobacco Humour in Sport Set Overview
This set featured humorous images from the world of sports. Cards were issued by United Tobacco for their cigarette products.
The cards have colorful images on the front, often humorous in nature, and are without titles. The backs of the cards include a dialogue or speech from the participant(s) shown on the front. They also state they are one in a series of 50 subjects in the entire set and have a card number as well.
Sports are generally depicted on more than one card. For example, there are a few different tennis cards, a few different golf cards, etc.
Athletes on the cards are generic in nature. However, these cards are still pursued, in particular by tennis, golf, boxing, and soccer collectors, as those sports are all represented here. Part of the reason they are collected is because they are quite rare in the U.S.
