1931 J.A. Pattreiouex Sports Trophies Set Overview

1931Pattreioux Sports Trophies BaseballThis set included 50 cards featuring prestigious sports trophies. The cards were distributed by Manchester tobacco company J.A. Pattreiouex for its cigarette brands. The Quality Cigarettes name is printed at the top of the fronts.

The cards featured color pictures of trophies from sports around the world. While all are sports issues, cards featuring baseball, golf, and tennis are highly desirable to American collectors.

The baseball trophy was not the World Series trophy. Instead, it was the Baseball Cup, which was a silver cup awarded to the winner of the British Baseball Competition. The trophy, as pictured here, also had a topper of a baseball player on it.

Many of the trophies will not be familiar with American collectors as the majority were not distributed here. However, some are well-known, such as the Davis Cup.

The set is rare and not easily found, particularly in the United States. They will occasionally surface on eBay and are mostly sold by international dealers.
