Diamantine-Schuhputz / Diabona Bohnerwachs Trade Cards Overview
These trade cards were produced by a German company, Diamantine. The multi-sport set includes at least one card representing the big four sports with a hockey issue.
The cards have a white border with a colorful lithograph presented on the fronts. The back includes a blue-ink ad for Diamantine. The hockey card in particular features a game between two unnamed teams. While being played outdoors, the game is still a formal one of sorts as the two teams are wearing uniforms and not casual clothing.
Various sports are featured in the set, including boxing. The boxing card is notable in that it features a well-known athlete, Hall of Famer Gene Tunney.
The names Diamantine-Schuhputz and Diabona-Bohnerwachs are printed on the front as is a small card number. These are actually two separate products – the first is a shoe shine and the second is a type of cream.
The exact date of the cards is unknown but they are believed to be from the 1920s. These cards are rare and there are some I’ve not yet seen in the set.
