"A ." Set (A Sans Serif)

Issuing Company: Unknown - Dutch Gum Card
Country of Issue: Sweden
Year of Issue:
Color/B&W: Color
Number of Cards in Set: 150
Card Size: 1 3/4" x 2 3/4"
Issued as insert with what product:

Notes: Blank-backed, no company name listed. I originally thought these cards came from Germany since I acquired some from that country, but a game containing these cards indicates they were issued in Sweden.

This set appears very similar to the A. Set (A Serif). The best way to tell these sets apart is that the "A" on the A Serif set contains a line on the bottom of the A (a serif). The "A" for this Sans Serif set consists of completely straight lines (sans serif). The period after the "A" is also indented a little further after the "A" in this set and is right next to the "A" in the A Serif set. The checklists are different for the two sets.

This set was sold as a game. The game consisted of 50 cards and 5 game sheets, which were 5 uncut sheets of 10 cards. The game contained a rule writeup on the outside of the packet, written in Swedish and translated into English as follows:

Game Rules
2-6 people can participate in the game.
A banker is selected and the other players receive their map.
The banker shuffles the loose cards and then lays them face down.
The banker then takes one card at a time and announces the number and name of the card.
The player who has the corresponding card on his card receives this and places it with the back up on top of the tile.
The player who first gets his tray full has won the game and will eventually receive a prize.
A game for the whole family!

A writeup on the front of the packet states the following:

Game no. 3. Contains 5 maps and 50 release cards.

This set of cards contains 150 cards, but Game no. 3 contains cards numbered from 101-150. It can be assumed that there were two additional games that contained cards 1-50 and 51-100. I don't know if this set was only available as a game or if the cards were also sold in regular card packets.
