These cards were distributed by the Union Jack publication. They were issued weekly in January and February of 1923. The set, as mentioned on the back, is called, “Monarchs of the Ring.”

It is a small six-card set featuring some of the popular boxers of the era. The cards are basic with a black and white image of a boxer with only his name on the front.

Backs of the cards indicate they were offered with the Union Jack along with the date of issue. They also included a biography of the subject pictured.

The set is headlined by Hall of Fame legend Jack Dempsey. Dempsey has several slightly earlier issues but this is still one of his first cards.
