Hitler Photograph group
Hey, I bought a few items off a local collector recently. Just a few basic thing. In the group was these photographs. I was unable to find any pictures on google that are like them. They are Hitler photographs, on glossy photo paper, but yet on the back each one of them has a title and appears to be a number, followed by a write up. The way the cards are numbered on the back it would appear as if they are apart of a set of some sort. Almost like collecting baseball...except these are Hitler cards. Just curious as to if anyone knows why these were published, and or what there purpose was. The photos are interesting, but I'm guessing there mass published. All comments welcome.

These are 'cigarette cards' for pasting into
an album - common items.........
Yup, collector cards! I'd say they are probably tobacco cards.
Edit: Beaten again!
Does seem rather funny - 'Hitler cards' - but there you go.........!
Cigarette albums also.... are great research tools..as much an be seen in the photos. Still quite period..and a nice find! Regards Larry

Cards would be for the album "Adolf Hitler" or maybe "Deutschland Erwache"....ca. 1934-5.
Do you happen to have the rare Göring rookie card?
. Wolf that was my first thought, no one could someone create Hitler cards to be collected and traded as freely as the fan favorite baseball cards. your right the idea of it is odd. Thanks for the info guys, the knowledge here never fails.
Sorry Erno no rookie card, couldnt even pull a autograph card. Just wasnt my day, guess ill go back to the store tommorrow and get another pack...the plus is the bubble gum has great flavor
