1925 Holland Creameries Washington Senators Overview

26H 04 Shirley.jpg

In 1924-25, Holland Creameries produced a short, ten-card set of hockey cards. They followed that up with a baseball card set, featuring members of the 1924 World Series champion Washington Senators. The set is classified by some as 1925 and others as 1926. But while the Senators did reach the World Series in 1925, they lost that season to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Senators won it all in 1924 so this would seem to be a 1925 issue.

Cards were black and white with text on the front and images printed with a blue tint. The fronts stated ‘Holland World’s Champions’ at the top and the player’s name and position printed at the bottom with an image in the middle.

Like the hockey set, the ice cream manufacturer offered collectors a special redemption program. A complete set was good for a brick of ice cream, three Holland banquets, three snowballs, or five Holland Delights if returned in person to the company at their factory at 740 Logan Avenue in Winnipeg.

The cards are rare with both PSA and SGC having graded only a few copies. SGC’s population report states that they have graded at least one of each card. PSA, however, has not yet graded every card in the set.
