C56 and C55 - the T206 and T205 of Hockey! Empty C56 and C55 - the T206 and T205 of Hockey!

These Imperial Tobacco sets have often been compared to the leading baseball tobacco sets of the era.

C56 (the earlier set) features portrait cards that bring to mind T206.

C55 cards have ornate borders that compare somewhat to T205.

Feel free to show your C56 and/or C55 cards here.

I'll start with my C56 rookie card of Hall-of-Famer Jack Laviolette, and my C55 of "Cyclone" Taylor:

I've always thought C55's are way superior to C56's, design wise. Really nice cards Blair.

Thanks Ben! I know some fans of each set. A buddy of mine is working on C55, which he much prefers. He is still looking for the Vezina RC at at the right price! Cool .

Thanks Adam! The old Ottawa jerseys - real sharp, for sure! I believe the current Senators team has a throwback jersey that is an homage to this early jersey (similar stripe pattern).

Here's my single contribution, bought for type at a show several years ago in one of those "I might as well spend what I have left" moments.
