1935 Ogden’s Story of Sand Overview

1935 Ogden Story of Sand Track and FieldOgden Story of Sand Golf CardThis 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.
