1922-23 Sporting Champions Set Overview

Jack Dempsey 1922-23 Sporting Champions boxingThis set was issued with ‘The Champion’ publication in 1922 and 1923.

Cards featured boxers and a different one was released each week. The front of the cards had a black and white picture of a boxer inside of a thick white border.

Backs of the cards listed the date that the particular card was given away, a card number, and also told collectors which card was coming in the following week. The cards were a bit unique as they included a very glossy finish.

As an early issue, the set contains many cards of boxers that collectors consider to be rookie issues, including Hall of Famers Jack Dempsey, George Carpentier, and Benny Leonard, among others.
