T-Cards (Tobacco)

Introduction

T220 Kid LavigneT-Cards represent American tobacco issues and are one of the most popular of the designations given by Jefferson Burdick in the American Card Catalog.

These were cards that were either packaged directly with tobacco products or issued separately by tobacco companies. Many boxing issues are American cards. However, a large group are from other parts of the world. Several were part of multi-sport issues from the United Kingdom.

Because the sport was popular, many boxing cards featuring actual boxers (instead of generic ones) exist. In addition, earlier boxing issues typically utilized color lithographs while many later cards from the 1930s featured real black and white photography. Both types of cards remain popular with collectors for different reasons.

Collectors should note that while many sets were dedicated entirely to boxers, because of the sport’s high level of popularity, it was often featured as part of multi-sport issues that included many sports.

Looking to learn more about collecting tobacco cards? Here’s an introduction of sorts that I wrote, which covers their history

Below is a list of pre-war boxing card sets and multi-sport sets where a boxing card can be found.
