Back View - Example

The backs of the cards in this series all have a standard format. They contain only text in a horizontal layout, printed in a shade of blue. The left third of each card contains the identical GRIND YOUR COFFEE AT HOME advertising message. At the upper right of this section is the number assigned to the card in the series. The remainder of the back contains the name of the "nation" depicted, a brief description of the place and/or its people, and a description of the sports and pastimes with which it was most closely associated. Some of these are depicted in the illustrations on the front of the card.

At the bottom of each card is a single line of text stating "This is one of a series of Fifty (50) Cards giving a pictorial History of the Sports and Pastimes of all Nations."
