1921/1922 Leader Theatre (575-1) Overview

Leader Theatre Backe121Leader Theatre cards are one of the many sets that utilized the design/checklist from the popular W575-1 strip card set and/or E121 American Caramel set. The cards are feature a black and white player image along with his name, position, and team at the bottom.

Backs of the cards is what distinguishes these from other W575-1 and E121 card issues.

Leader Theatre backs offered an advertisement for that movie theater. The theater was located on 9th Street, near E. Street, N.W., as stated on the backs. The ad also stated what was playing at the theater and offered a special promotion for collectors that could put together an entire set. Cards were given away free of charge and anyone collecting an entire set would receive an album.

The Leader Theatre cards also differ in that they specifically state, which W575-1/E121 set to which they belong. They identify that there are 120 cards in the set, which means that they likely used the E121 Set of 120 checklist.

1921/1922 Leader Theatre (W575-1) Checklist

Below is the complete E121 American Caramel Set of 120 cards to which the Leader Theatre cards seem to correspond. Note that while 120 cards were advertised, more than 120 were printed counting all of the different variations. It is unknown if all of these variations or players exist within the Leader Theatre set.

Given that the promotion stated collectors needed to find the set of 120, that was likely not the case and it is possible that only 120 were printed with the Leader Theatre backs.
