Default Woolson Spice Company

While going through and old trunk, I found several old cards with beautiful pictures on one side and advertisement on the back side from the Woolson Spice Company advertising LION coffee. Has anyone ever heard of the Woolson Spice Company or LION coffe or know possibly when these cards were made. According to the advertisement a card was put in every package of coffee. Thanks in advance.

Thumbs up Woolson Spice Co.

Woolson Spice Co. was owned by my GreatGreat Uncle Alvin Mansfield Woolson in the 1800's, my Great Grandfather Paul Bird Woolson also worked for his cousin. Yes, they put a card in every box. These 'Trade Cards' are bought by collectors for around $1-$15. You can look them up on ebay under Woolson or Lion Coffee. I currently have a collection of over 100 cards.

I have lots of the trading cards. I guess that is what they are. What can I do with them? Are they worth anything? Brenda

My grandfather, Frank Allen Woolson, was the nephew of Alvin Woolson who often visited him in Newark Ohio where he was the editor of the Newark Advocate newspaper. we lived in Toledo, Ohio and I am familiar with the Woolson bldg. as well as the street named after him anf the story printed by the Toledo Blade which explains his many contributions to Toledo. My interest is in both memorabilia and history.

My cousin,Larry Woolson, has restored and opened the original Woolson Co. in Mt. Vernon Ohio. He might be interested your cards. I wouldlike to buy 12 if the price is VERY reasonable. Please reply to thyme 022000@ yahoo.com
