The 1955 Ashland / Aetna Oil Basketball set contains 96 black and white cards of college basketball players and measure 2 5/8" by 3 3/4". These cards can feature one of two different backs featuring advertisements for either the Ashland or Aetna oil companies, with cards having the Aetna oil back commanding a premium.
These unnumbered cards are featured here alphabetically by team, and these cards were originally a local distribution in either Ohio, Kentucky, or West Virginia, so it makes sense that these cards featured players from colleges in those states.
