1936 Dubek Sports Overview
These rare cards are the work of an Israeli tobacco manufacturer, Dubek. Dubek produced hundreds of cigarette cards over several different sets and one of those focused on sports.
Believed to have been issued in 1936, this set features Jewish athletes in a variety of sports, including basketball, soccer, tennis, boxing, wrestling, track and field, and more. The cards are hardly ever seen at all but are especially tough to find in the U.S. Most of the names are not known to American collectors but these cards are still very desirable due to their rarity. That is particularly true for collectors of Jewish athletes.
Cards feature full bleed black and white images and were designed to be placed into an album. The sizes of the cards vary as some are smaller than others. The album, also quite rare, is white with blue ink cartoon depictions of the various sports found in the set.
