1928 Ogden’s Pugilists in Action Set Overview

1928 Ogden's Pugilists in Action BoxingThis release issued by Ogden’s tobacco company for its cigarette packages in 1928. 50 cards are in the set, which features famous boxers. The set was one of several that Ogden’s created with boxers in it. It also parallels a set with the same title and pictures distributed by Player’s Cigarettes in the same year.

Cards feature black and white images of boxers with their name, as well as the Ogden’s Cigarettes name, in light colored boxes at the bottom and top of the card, respectively. Those boxes are the distinguishing characteristics of this 1920s tobacco card set. Backs of the cards include a biography of the subject.

While some cards have a lighter background, overall, the cards have a darker-than-normal appearance, such as the Jack Dempsey shown here.

Hall of Famers Jack Dempsey and Gene Tunney lead the way on this popular set.
