Taddy & Co. - (ZJ03-745) Sports & Pastimes Series 1


1912
(ZJ03-745) Sports & Pastimes Series 1
Taddy & Co.
25 cards (1 football, sort of)

Another unusual card to find on this blog - Pushball has also been called Horse Soccer, Equine Soccer and Hoofball. The Taddy version is usually listed as having been issued in 1912, whilst most of the other issuers seem to be dated to the 1923/1924/1925 era. I've shown the front of one card, all the others are exactly the same. I've included backs of some of the other versions too though there are some I haven't been able to track down. The title on the front of the cards tell us that this is Series 1 but I don't believe a second series was ever produced. Here's a list of the issuers I know of, some are tobacco companies, followed by the 25 card checklist. The plain backed version was issued by Teofani & Co. Ltd.
