E-Cards (Candy)

E-Cards consist of cards representing numerous candy and caramel companies. These cards, in general, are much rarer than tobacco cards.

Jefferson Burdick indirectly classified these as pre-1933 issues since his R-Card designation for later gum and candy cards was to be used for issues from 1933 and later. However, some issues don’t follow that identification – likely because Burdick was unaware of the exact year of issue.

After the T-Cards, candy cards are probably the most popular card designation.

Like the other non-sports pages, this is not meant to be a full listing of non-sports issues in this category. Rather, it includes only some of the more popular ones listed in the American Card Catalog.
