1932 Abdulla Cigarettes Overview

The 1932 Abdulla Cigarettes set includes a total of 200 German-produced cards. The key for American collectors here is the card of New York Yankees star Babe Ruth – the only baseball issue in the entire release.

Ruth’s card was No. 196 in the set and the card measures approximately 1 3/4″ x 2 1/2″. Produced in 1932, this is a contemporary card produced while Ruth was still an active major league player.

The front of the card includes a black and white image of Ruth and has his name at the bottom with ‘Amerika’ to designate that he was a U.S. athlete. The back also includes his name and some text in German. The set contains many other subjects, including boxers.

The Ruth card has become more popular to American collectors over the years. It is fairly rare but can be a little more affordable than some of Ruth’s other American issues from his playing days.
