Bufford Hockey Boy Trade Card (903) Overview

Bufford Hockey Boy Trade Card (903)This card is one of the many issues produced by Bufford, a famous lithographer. Bufford also produced another popular set that included a hockey trade card – Hockey on the Ice.

This issue features a young boy dressed in winter clothing with a snowball and a hockey stick. The Bufford name is printed in the sow on the ground and the card is identifiable by a small number ‘903’ to the left side. Trade cards often included small identifying numbers and letters on them and that is the case here.

The exact date of the cards is unknown but estimated to be from the 1870s or 1880s.

As trade cards, these were printed on thinner, light cardboard stock, making them fragile and highly susceptible to damage.

In addition, as is the case with most trade cards, advertisements are placed in a variety of areas on these. Most are on the back but advertisements and business names are sometimes on the fronts instead.
