Between 1897 and 1910 it was possible to buy matchboxes in Spain that contained small collectable cards, much like the more familiar cigarette cards. These cards are known as “Inserts” in English or “Fototipias” in Spanish, and over the course of these thirteen years over 3000 different Inserts were produced, across 37 series with 75 or more Inserts in each Series.

Click on the images below for more information about these Inserts. If you are new to the site “The Inserts Explained” is a good place to start.
