Issuing Company: Leaf|
Country of Issue: Germany
Year of Issue: late 1950s or early 1960s
Number of Cards in Set:
Card Size: 2 9/16" x 3 11/16"; Album Size: 8 1/4" x 11 3/4"
Issued as insert with what product: Gum
Notes: Checklist incomplete. Unnumbered. These cards were issued by Leaf Gum in Germany, but the cards themselves make no mention of Leaf. There was an album issued with this set that contains the Leaf name.
The album cover is made up of thick cardboard. On the inside page, it says "Original Leaf Bubble Gum." Translated below the Leaf info, it reads "chewing gum that conquers all children's hearts and inspires innumerable athletes."
Cards from this set have been seen with two different back types. One type contains grey text, while the other type contains blue text. Not enough cards have been studied to know whether an individual card front can be seen with both card backs or not.
This set was hard to place on the Moviecard Website. The cards themselves are anonymous, and the design is similar to other cards of that era, so I put them in the BAT-Anonymous section next to other similar sets, though they could have been put in the Misc L-M section since the Leaf issuer is known, or in the German section, since this was a German set.
