Trade cards

Trade cards were popular before World War 1. Some of the larger companies such as Liebig, Gartmann and Stollwerck produced their own cards. However most of them were produced as anonymous cards and sold on to the companies and individual traders who gave them away with their products. Companies who could afford it had their own special backs printed on the cards whilst others just had the company name printed on the front. Individual traders tended to buy blank cards and put their company stamp on the back, or just give them away with no name on them. Thus it is possible to find the same cards in hundreds of variations. This makes it difficult to list the cards under individual issuers so as time goes by I will attempt to list them according to the series title and number.
