1910s Gentilini Biscuits CREMONA goalie - the earliest Italian football card Art Nouveau IN MY BOOK!

£95.00

Description

From circa 1910s -1920 by Gentilini Biscuits, for CREMONESE, the team from Cremona. This is one of the earliest Italian football cards - maybe the very first series! This card is featured IN MY BOOKS. The designs on the front and the back are typical of Art Nouveau, a style which died around the time of World War One to be replaced by Art Deco which was all the rage in the 1920s. Also, the logo of Gentlini became a train made of biscuits, in the 1920s. This card feels earlier, around 1910-1914, which would make it the earliest known Italian soccer trade card! SOLD AS SEEN
