1923 V145-1 Hockey Cards

1923 V145-1 Hockey Cards

Product Details

User Rating:

There are two hockey sets labeled V145, each with the same size and a similar look. Since they were issued anonymously, little is known about their manner of issue, but some collectors have speculated that the 1923 V145-1 Hockey cards came from a candy company called William Patterson, Ltd. In any case, they have been designated V-series cards due to their similarity to other caramel-issued card sets of the 1920s. A trained eye will know the difference, but many collectors need a checklist to tell them apart. The first set was issued in 1923-24.

1923 V145-1 Hockey card fronts feature a sepia-tinted player picture. A thin black line divides the photo from the white border area. Below the photo is a card number, along with the player's name, team and league designation. The backs are blank.

There are 40 cards in the 1923 V145-1 Hockey set representing four NHL teams. Players are grouped by team, with Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto and Hamilton making up the set. Many major stars of the era are included, such as Howie Morenz, Georges Vezina, Aurel Joliat and King Clancy. However, the key card in the set features Bert Corbeau. The card is widely assumed to have been short-printed.

1923 V145-1 hockey cards can be distinguished from V145-2 cards by their sepia tints. Fortunately, the only player whose number is the same in both sets is King Clancy, so a checklist can help determine the issue.
