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. 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.

Card 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. A card number appears in a 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 them a 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 key card in 1911-12 C55 Hockey features Georges Vezina and is one of the legendary cards of the hockey hobby. Other highly-sought stars include Art Ross, Newsy LaLonde and Fred "Cyclone" Taylor.
