1901-1902 Ogden Tab Cigarettes General Interest Overview
The Ogden Tab Cigarettes General Interest issue was a massive set, believed to contain approximately 420 cards spread out over six series (A, B, C, D, E, and F).
The set was a multi-sport issue and also contained non-sports subjects, including some animals.
Cards have distinctive black borders, which helps them to stand out from other tobacco cards of the era, which often used white borders. The Ogden’s Cigarettes name is printed at the bottom (or, in the case of horizontal cards, the side)
The set is popular among boxing fans as numerous boxers are included. But it also contains other sports, including golf, soccer, and hockey. The hockey card is of interest to many as it is one of the earliest cards from that sport. The black and white image features several unnamed players on the ice. It is card No. 72 in Series E.
