1910 Taddy Wrestlers Set Overview

1910 Taddy Wrestlers

These cards are extremely tough and among the earlier wrestling issues. The cards were issued by Taddy & Company out of London and could be part of a larger set as only two are known to date.

The cards feature black and white images of wrestlers Frank Crozier and Buttan Singh. Interestingly, both were minorities as Crozier was a black Scottish wrestler that was a recognized champion and Singh was Indian.

Crozier is generally recognized as the first black champion in the sport. His card includes the subtitle of “World’s Middle Weight Champion, 1909” at the bottom beneath his name. That effectively helps date this issue as a c. 1910 set.

Both cards are incredibly rare and usually sell for a good bit of money, at least for early wrestling cards. It isn’t uncommon to see these sell for more than $100 each.
