1946-47 Caramelo Deportivo Overview

1946 Caramelo DeportivoProduced in Cuba, this 185-card set is one of the first true post-war issues. The set was created for the 1946-47 Cuban winter baseball season, hence the reason it spans over those two years. It is sometimes considered as the second series of the 1945-46 set produced a year earlier.

The cards are basic with black and white images on the front along with a card number. The images used are often a bit grainy/low quality and appear inside of a black border that is surrounded by white borders. In general, the cards have a similar look to the 1945-46 release.

Backs repeat the card number and include some basic biographical information as well as a short advertisement for the issuer, Felices, as well as the name of the set, Caramelo Deportivo (Sports Candy). Backs also include an address and phone number for Felices.

In all, a total of eight different Cuban teams are represented in this set. Low-grade commons in the set typically start around $10.
