The Sweet Caporal Postcards:

The Montreal Canadiens set, has 9 black-and-white borderless cards was printed by the British American Tobacco Company and distributed by Imperial Tobacco of Canada. The portraits that were used for these postcards were then used for the artwork of  the 1911 C55 hockey set.

The front of the elegant postcards say “Prominent Canadian Hockey Players- Sweet Caporal Cigarettes Series No. XX.” and the backs look like any typical postcard form that era.
