Ogdens Boxing A B C of Sport 1927 (CCS Reprint 2002) A B C of Sport 1927 (CCS Reprint 2002) 25 - We now have in stock a reprint of the 1927 set by Ogdens which illustrates a sport for each letter of the alphabet except Z which appears on the same card as Y. The often humorous colour pictures are backed by a little rhyme such as “J is the jockey (cross-country of course!) who passes the winning-post after his horse – the steed had a notion, abrupt but intense, to see what it felt like to sit on a fence!” Some of the subjects chosen are odd, for instance D is deerstalking, but surely it would be less of a stretch to have illustrated dog racing and the entry for I is an Imbecile when obviously ice skater would be the logical choice. Also V and X clearly proved a challenge as the rhymes explain - V stands for Villikins a champion at spillikins and “X is a prefix that champions use when to their laurels they finally made their adieus”. Yachting was the obvious choice for Y, but the best they could come up with for Z is ‘Zest’. That said this is an entertaining little set with cards size 68 x 36mm
