1930s Aromaskola Sports Series Overview

Armoaskola BackArmoaskolaThis rare issues comes to collectors from Sweden. It is the product of some sort of candy company from that country.

These miniature cards look similar to other Swedish candy issues, produced around the same time. It is possible (though uncertain) that some of the issues are related.

A black and white picture of an athlete is shown on the front as a full bleed card. Their name is at the bottom. Unlike some other Swedish issues, these do not have card numbers. Backs have an ad in Swedish.

This is a multi-sport set covering many sports, including tennis, boxing, wrestling, track and field, soccer, and more. Those sports were covered in most of the other aforementioned Swedish candy sets from the 1930s. As an international issue, many of the athletes are unknown to American collectors. The cards are also pretty tough to find here in the U.S. They are not impossible to locate but do not surface too often.
