1920s Clinica Moderna / Joaquin Lloveras Noms Chocolates / Comet Chocolates / Chocolates Buena Salud
These rare Spanish sets included 14 boxers for at least three different candy companies in the 1920s. Parallel sets were created for:
- Chocolates Buena Salud
- Clinica Moderna
- Comet Chocolates
- Joaquin Lloveras Noms Chocolates
All four sets included the same boxers and pictures in them.
The cards from any of the sets are rarely found here in the U.S. Fronts included color pictures of boxers and the set is headlined by Hall of Famers Jack Dempsey and Georges Carpentier. The fronts also included the fighter’s name and white borders around the edges. All of the cards have a vertical layout, save for the card of R. Alis, which was printed horizontally.
Backs served as advertisements for each of the companies and are the keys to identifying which of the three sets a particular card belongs.
Note that while the sizes of these cards appear to be close, some slight variances have been reported. Comet Chocolates cards, for example, measure approximately 2 3/16″ wide by 3 1/2″ tall. Lloveras Noms Chocolates cards, however, are slightly bigger at 2 1/4″ wide by 3 3/4″ tall.
