1926 Boxeadores Celebres Set Overview

1926 Boxeadores Celebres Jack DempseyThese vintage Spanish cards featured famous boxers, which is what the Boxeadores Celebres name translates to.

While it was a Spanish card set, popular American Hall of Fame fighters Jack Dempsey and Gene Tunney were among those included in it.

Card fronts included the Boxeadores Celebres name at the top and the fighter’s name at the bottom in large thick white borders. A black and white image of the subject was in the middle of the card and the backs repeated the fighter’s name and included a biography about him.

Some backs included candy company advertisements while others had no additional information and were merely blank underneath the biography.

As a Spanish issue, cards from the set are very difficult to find in the U.S.
