Cartledge Boxing Famous Prize Fighters 1938 Famous Prize Fighters 1938 50 - What could be a more appropriate subject than boxing for a card series by the makers of ‘Knock-Out’ razor blades? That is precisely what the well-known Sheffield firm of F.C. Cartledge Ltd. had in mind when they issued their series of fifty Famous Prize Fighters. In recent years this has become a classic among collectors and has become quite scarce. It covers the sport in considerable depth, from the bare-knuckle champs of the 18th century like John Broughton and Tom Cribb through to the great names of the 1930s such as Jack Dempsey, Tommy Farr and Joe Louis. The pictures are either black and white drawings or matt photographs with first class text on the backs. This set contains the scarce No. 23, but in addition was available as a part set of 49 out of 50 (minus No. 23)– please check our website for availability. In 1939 two cards were issued featuring Eric Boon and Arthur Danahar, but confusingly these were numbered 13 and 19 so perhaps were intended to replace those numbers in the set. These are a must for any boxing fan. Size 67 x 35mm

Cartledge Boxing Famous Prize Fighters Variety Cards of Numbers 13 and 19 1939 Famous Prize Fighters Variety Cards of Numbers 13 and 19 1939 4 - Issued in 1939 these two varieties were produced by Cartledge, the makers of ‘Knock-Out’ razor blades, who had already issued a series of 50 Famous Prize Fighters in 1938 (check website for availability), which was also available as a part set (minus No. 23) of 49 out of 50 (again check our website for availability). These varieties are a mix of black and white drawings and matt photographs with first class text on the backs. The two featured are No. 13 William Thompson or Eric Boon and No. 19 Bill Doherty or Arthur Danahar. It was perhaps intended that Arthur Danahar and Eric Boon would replace William Thompson and Bill Doherty in the set as in February 1939 Boon fought Danahar in what was the first boxing match to be televised by the BBC. These are a must for any boxing fan. Size 67 x 35mm
