The mysterious 1938 American Sweets
Oh, hi there! Come over here by the campfire and relax for a while. Let me entertain you with a thread about a mysterious set of cards called 1938 American Sweets. As the legend goes, back in 1938 in Manila in the Philippines, a set of cards was under production that included boxers, weightlifters, and some exercising images. The set was originally slated for 250 subjects, but it is believed that only 40 exist, 20 boxers and 20 weightlifting and exercising images. This is a mysterious set, and the production of the entire set of 250 was interrupted by the invasion of the philippines by the Japanese. It is also believed that only one known example exists for many of these cards, they are truly rare treasures. I have read about this set online and I have seen some of the boxing cards, and they are unbelievably awesome! Now, this is a mysterious story and if any of my information is incorrect, please feel free to add on to this thread, because this set deserves it's time in the spotlight, and I want the information to be as accurate as possible. Below are some of the known examples of boxers from this legendary set. Thanks for stopping by!
