User Rating:

1911-12 C55 Hockey cards have a similar look to many of their contemporary T-series cards and have the same dimensions. Unlike many of those sets, however, they are numbered and lack any advertisements on the back despite being released by Imperial Tobacco. Of the three major C-series sets of the era, this is considered to be the easiest to complete even though it contains the most expensive star cards.

1911-12 C55 Hockey Set Details

1911-12 C55 Hockey fronts have a lithographed player picture. A box below the player contains his name and graphic hockey sticks on each side form part of the picture's border. The card number appears in the lower corner. Backs feature an ornate design with a "Hockey Series" designation on top and a card number inside a circle at the bottom. The player's name and a rundown of his teams appear in between.

It is generally believed that 1911-12 C55 Hockey cards were issued by Imperial Tobacco, even though the cards don't name the manufacturer. There are 45 cards in the complete set, with two variations of Walter Smaill on card number 27. One version shows Smaill's right hand on a hockey stick, and the other shows his right hand on his hip.

The top card in 1911-12 C55 Hockey features George Vezina and is one of the legendary cards of the hockey hobby. Other notable cards include Art Ross, Newsy LaLonde and Fred "Cyclone" Taylor.
