C-Cards and V-Cards (Canadian)

Introduction

V31 Dominion Chocolate Golf.jpgWhile most Canadian pre-war cards were understandably hockey issues, there are some featuring other sports, too.

C-Cards and V-Cards are Canadian issues. C-Cards represent cards produced by tobacco companies and V-Cards are those produced by candy/gum companies north of the U.S. border. Like the U.S. products, these cards were distributed with all sorts of sweets, including chocolate, candy, and gum.

With demand for these cards not reaching the same popularity as their American counterparts did, these are generally rarer and more difficult to find. Collectors of golf cards will usually pay a premium over what collectors for other cards would as they are highly desirable to them because of their rarity.

Many Canadian issues look significantly different than American cards. Canadian sets are often narrower by design.

Below are both C-Card and V-Card issues for the sport of golf.
