1928 Churchman Lawn Tennis Overview

1928 Churchman Tennis Large Bill Tilden.jpgThis is a set from the UK that features pictures of various tennis players.

The issue includes both male and female players with black and white images on the front and a short biography of the player on the back. The cards were distributed with Churchman cigarette products.

Notable names in the set include Rene Lacoste, Bill Tilden, and Helen Wills-Moody, among others.

While these are a larger tobacco card size, collectors should note that a separate, smaller and more common 1928 Churchman card set exists as well. That set is not a parallel of this one as it includes 50 cards while only 12 cards make up this issue. Pictures of players that appear in both sets, however, are the same.
