1928 Amatller Chocolates Overview

1928 Amatller Chocolate Boxing.jpgThis international set featured boxers from around the world, including many big names. Most notably, Hall of Famers Jack Dempsey, Gene Tunney, and Georges Carpentier are all featured.

Cards in the set have colored pictures on the front. The Amatller Chocolates name is on the front in light blue ink as is the boxer’s name.

Backs are in Spanish and were printed in blue ink. They have the Amatller Chocolates name (Chocolate Amatller) and include a brief description of the boxer(s) pictured on the front. Some boxers have more than one card in the set, including Dempsey and Tunney, who each have several.

Despite being an international issue, the cards aren’t too rare in the U.S. these days. They aren’t exactly plentiful but aren’t terribly difficult to find, either. The rarity is really interesting, given that other Amatller sets are much harder to find in the U.S., including a 1924 movie star set that featured football player Red Grange and a generic sports issue believed to be issued in the 1930s.
