1921 Liebig In the World of Animals Trade Cards Overview
These trade cards were distributed by Liebig, a popular extract company. The fronts depicted a variety of colorful scenes. Of most interest to American sports collectors is a card featuring a tennis match.
The formal name of the set is called Dans le Monde des Animaux. That is in French and, translated, means “In the World of Animals.” The cards all picture animals participating in human activities. Most of the cards in the set are non-sports cards. However, one features chickens playing tennis and is considered a sports issue.
The cards were made to advertise Liebig’s products. In addition to the pictures on the front, a can of the product was prominently displayed. Like other trade cards, the backs included an advertisement for the product.
Liebig printed trade cards for decades. As was the case here, many of their sets included a total of six cards. The set is believed to have been printed in or around 1921.
