1938 F.C. Cartledge Jack Dempsey and Joe Louis Cards
Out of stock
Through the decades, the vast majority of British trading cards have been dispensed as tobacco inserts. In 1938, though, F. C. Cartledge hoped to stimulate the sale of their razor blades through the issuing of 50 different boxer images (one per retail unit), titling the issue “Famous Prize Fighters”, of course. And so, even by British standards, these cards are today quite scarce. Among the ring celebrities featured in this production were the Americans, Jack Dempsey and Joe Louis, and those cards are now offered. #26 Dempsey is EX/MT with very light corner wear. The Joe Louis card (#30) has been professionally graded to merit PSA’s evaluation of NM 7 – which it richly deserves.
