The 1924 C144 Champ’s Cigarettes hockey card set includes 60 black and white cards. The release was printed in Canada. Georges Vezina is a key card in the issue.

Like the C57 set, these included black and white images on the front. Backs included a short biography of each player.

C144 Champ’s Cigarettes Stanley Cup Card

In addition to the Vezina card, another key card in the set is No. 59 – that of the famous Stanley Cup. While the first time the Stanley Cup was awarded was in 1893, this may be the first time it was depicted on a hockey card simply because pre-war hockey issues from the 1890s through the early 1900s were scarce.

The card was printed as a filler because the set was missing pictures of several players that apparently were to be included. The Stanley Cup card was a replacement for those players as part of a contest.

The text on the card reads as follows:

“Pictures of Stewart, Matz, Cotch and Gorman were not available at the time of going to press. Those who are interested in our Hockey Contest may substitute this insert for any or all of these players.”

PSA has graded more than 1,000 of these cards.
