1915 Cope’s Boxers Set Overview

1915 Cope's Boxers Boxing.jpgThese cards were issued by Cope Brothers & Company, Ltd., a tobacco manufacturer in Liverpool and London, England. Cards were packaged with their cigarette products.

Fronts of these cards have a unique design with a black border with a black and white picture and the Cope’s Cigarettes name inside of boxes. In particular, the black borders that are unable to hide most flaws are one of the reasons that finding these cards in high-grade condition is difficult.

In addition to a biography, backs of the cards were a little unique with some statistical information on each subject, including a height, weight, and birth year. In all, there are 125 total cards. But cards were believed to be issued in subsets of 25 cards each.

The set includes about 20 Hall of Famers and is led by John Sullivan and Jack Johnson.
