Liebig Fleisch Extract Sports Trade Cards Overview

Liebig Tennis Trade Card Fleisch Extract.jpgThese trade cards were distributed by Liebig, a popular extract company. The fronts depicted a variety of colorful sports scenes. Of most interest to American sports collectors are cards featuring tennis and soccer.

The cards were made to advertise Liebig’s products. In addition to the pictures on the front, a can of the product was prominently displayed. Like other trade cards, the backs included an advertisement for the product.

Liebig printed trade cards for decades. As was the case here, many of their sets included a total of six cards. The exact date of this set is not known but it is believed to be printed around 1900.
