Apparently in 1995 there was a lack of soup oriented trading cards on the market and Campbell's set out to change that with "The Campbell's Collection".
Each pack came with 8 cards, 72 cards total in the set along with 4 chase sets; The Original Postcard Chase Set, Souper Card Chase Set, Telephone Cards, and the Refrigeration Art Chase Set.
I'm sure that everyone is familiar with the red cheeked cherubs that are/have been featured on Campbell's Soup cans and commercials for years now. Well this is basically what this set is, a bunch of Campbell's Soup Kids that appeared on postcards over the years.
#37 - 1985 Campbell's Kids
#58 - 1978 Campbell's Kids
#61 - 1986 Campbell's Kids
#65 - 1890's Heritage Art*This is an early label for canned products produced by the Joseph Campbell Preserve Company in the 1880s.
#69 - 1978 Campbell's Kids
#26 - 1979 Campbell's Kids
#30 - 1936 Original Artwork
*Used in actual 1936 advertisements.
Final Thoughts: These cards are kind of interesting in a retro sort of way and they are the bees-knees if you really like soup. Looking at eBay, you can grab the entire 72 card set for about $10, not too bad, if you're into that kind of stuff. Now I'm going to go have some Chicken and Stars for dinner.
*Special thanks to my wife Jessie for finding these cards. You're the best.
I want Campbell's cards. (It's my last name and own many Campbell's things..)
Thanks for posting so I know these exist!
Is that little girl in Native American Face up there?
Erin: No problem. I'm glad that this helped you out.
