When the third generation owner of these 105 year old (1911-12 Imperial Tobacco Hockey Cards) decided he was ready to sell them, he took them to a travelling antiques road show type of event where he was offered a sum that he wasn’t pleased with. He contacted me, and shortly thereafter I was sitting down in front of him, laying out $4,500.00 in cash for the collection! Issued by the Imperial Tobacco Company for the 1911-12 season, the C55 series pre-dates the NHL, and is one of the earliest known sets of hockey cards ever produced. Of the three Tobacco Sets produced in the early 1910’s, the C55 series is the most sought after and features the rookie card of Georges Vezina, and a host of other legendary players including Fred “Cyclone” Taylor, Art Ross and Edouard (Newsy) Lalonde!
About My Business
I buy and sell sports cards and collectibles for a living, and I’ve been doing it since 1982. If the time and effort required to sell on eBay are not for you, and the risks that accompany anonymous sites like Craigslist and Kijiji make you uncomfortable, I can be your easiest and best option. Please take the time to peruse my website and see some of the other deals I have made and feedback other people have given. I hope it will give you the confidence and trust necessary to see, that no matter where you live in Canada, it is easy and simple to do business with me! If you have pre-war hockey, baseball or other sports related material, or a collection of other stuff from the 1950’s up to today, please give me a call at 604-726-1774 or e-mail me at email@example.com.
Check out the video below where I purchase the entire 1911-12 C55 Imperial Tobacco Hockey collection for $4500 cash! (Please watch until the end for some kind words from the seller, Kevin, about his experience dealing with me.)
