Stollwerck Gold Chocolate Overview
Stollwerck Gold Chocolate was a chocolate brand in Germany. The company produced a set of non-sports and sports cards, likely in the early 1900s. Numerous cards and designs were used over a series of different subsets.
One hockey card is known to exist in the Sports series. The horizontal card features a color lithograph of a hockey game on the front along with the Stollwerck name. As many old hockey images do, the scene depicts the game being played with a ball instead of a traditional puck. Technically, that sport was ‘bandy’ but often referred to as hockey as ice hockey developed.
The back has a description of the sport and also states that it is card No. 111 in Group 565. An exact date of production, as well as the number of overall cards in the set or series, is unknown.

It is not clear how many cards were part of the set. The hockey card, however, is the only one in the major sports that I have seen to date.
