1927 / 1928 Echte Wagner Sport Series’ Overview

Like many other international series’, this unique set was broken into many smaller subsets.

The Echte Wagner (a margarine brand) issue included many different sub-series’ as part of a larger overall set. While most of the cards featured non-sports subjects, at least two of the subsets featured sports.

Series 6 was a six-card subset with boxing and tennis included. The boxing card is particularly notable as it features Gene Tunney. Series 7 was also a six-card issue. That one mostly includes winter sports with one exception in rugby.

Dating on the cards appears to be a bit fuzzy. They are commonly referred to as both 1927 and 1928 cards with other sources even believing they were a little later.
