This unique set is just one of many tobacco issues from the U.K. The cards were made for distribution into Ogden’s Cigarettes packages. Ogden’s was a popular company that produced numerous tobacco sets.
The cards have a standard look similar to numerous other UK sets from the 1930s. They have a color image, white border and a description on the back. This particular set looks at various types of sand and its many uses.
As such, it is mostly a non-sports set. However, a few cards can be considered sports cards, including one that features golf.
The golf card discusses the use of sand on a golf course. In addition to that one, another card talks about sand being a shock absorber in track and field for the long jump. A final card discusses the use of sand on racing tracks. The three sports cards were saved for the end of the set as they are numbers 48-50.
Most of the cards in the set have a minimal value. However, the golf card in particular is desirable to collectors.
