SportKings LP - SportKings Series A

 

2007
Sportkings - Series A
Sportkings LP
USA
Approx. 800 cards

In late 1933 and early 1934, Goudey issued the legendary 48-card Sport Kings, a set that featured the first-ever football cards of Red Grange, Jim Thorpe and Notre Dame immortal Knute Rockne. The set was the who's who of American sport. Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth and Carl Hubbell represented baseball, Bobby Jones, Walter Hagen and Gene Sarazen represented golf, Bill Tilden represented tennis, Gene Tunney, Jack Dempsey and Max Baer represented boxing, Eddie Shore, Ace Bailey and Howie Morenz represented hockey, Joe Lopchick, Nate Holman and Eddie Burke presented basketball while speed skating, ski jumping, billiards, horse racing, wrestling, athletics, boating and aviation were all captured by the stars of their day.

In 2007 SportKings LP resurrected the brand name by issuing a series of cards similar to the original 1930s cards, but with this new series, there was also so much more - on card autographs, memorabilia and ultra rare 1 of 1 cards. Series F is due out in a week or two and will include cards of Cristiano Ronaldo. In the meantime, I thought I would checklist all the football (sorry, soccer) cards issued in the five series of SportKings that have been issued to date.
