1927 Chocolat D’Aiguebelle Set Overview

1927 Chocolat D'Aiguebelle Boxing Jack Dempsey Back1927 Chocolat D'Aiguebelle Boxing Jack DempseyThis release was the work of D’Aiguebelle Chocolates, a candy company based in France.

A multi-sport issue, several types of athletes are represented, including boxers and tennis players. The pictures are printed in black and white and are surrounded by a thick white border. Fronts of the card include a photo with the subject’s name at the bottom and the D’Aiguebelle Chocolates name (Chocolat D’Aiguebelle, in French) in the bottom border.

Backs include the athlete’s name as well as a biography. The cards are unnumbered and believed to have been printed in 1927.

I have not yet been able to identify all of the sports included in the set. However, at a minimum, it includes boxing, tennis, and track and field.

Any cards from the set are tough to find in the U.S. Thus, even commons can be heavily desired and can sell for $10 or more. Stars, such as boxing greats Jack Dempsey and Gene Tunney, will usually command significantly more than that if spotted by a collector familiar with the issue and its rarity.
