I recently made a small purchase of some non sport cards.
There were a few of these included.No company name or year.
The cards measure about 1-5/16 " X 2-5/8" PLMK if you can.Thanks.

From the dimensions I would say that they are tea cards. Tea cards were made for hundreds of different subjects from the early 1900's to the 1960's.

It's a pretty set with vivid color drawings. 1960 Primrose Confectionary as Gary pointed out. 50 card set; there are four sets on the PSA registry, none of which are complete, but I couldn't find a PSA pop report for them. Kinda weird.

Here's a link to the set registered to Hansin on PSA which has the checklist and a Pop Report.

Pop report is hard to find because it's in the European/Foreign cards section rather than the non-sports section.

Got it - it is a little challenging to find the pop reports for overseas cards. Some of the UK Kane cards (Kings & Queens, Motor Cars, etc.) are in the European/Foreign cards category; the Disc Stars set is in the NS section.

Hi , super set full of bright colours and snippets of info om the back . It's also prone to bad cutting with a lot of the backs suffering from what I guess PSA would call off centre .

A similar set also issued by Primrose from 1964 shown below ...Laramie .

click on image to enlarge , then click again for super size .
