The caramel cards of the first two decades of the twentieth century are an interesting and complex part of the pre-war era of collectibles. Caramel cards, also known as E-cards, were issued one per pack of caramel candies. Unlike tobacco cards, these cards were mostly commonly handled by children and, therefore, it can be difficult to find them in decent condition. The caramel cards changed format only slightly in the 15 or so years that they were produced. Most of these cards measured 1 1/2 by 2 3/4" and had a framed portrait or basic action shot on the front and either a checklist, advertisement, or summary of the set on the back.
