Similar cards issued by tobacco companies are generally referred to as [[Heraldic tobacco cards|Tobacco cards]] or Cigarette cards. For postage-like stamps (cinderellas) see here, these have not been issued by companies as advertisement and are thus not considered trade cards.

Heraldic Trade Cards and Stamps

Trade cards are defined as cards and (larger) stamps (hard paper, cardboard, silk) issued by non-tobacco companies worldwide. Similar cards issued by tobacco companies are generally referred to as Tobacco cards or Cigarette cards and listed separately.

This page only lists cards issued as loose stamps or series. When intended to be in an album, the cards are listed under Heraldic albums.

Trade cards were very popular between 1920-1940, but have been issued since the 1860s until today. During the years many heraldic trade cards have been issued.

Sometimes a similar design was issued by more companies, sometimes even in many different countries.

Multinational Series

Arms, Flags and Types of Nations issued by over 150 companies in at least 8 countries (Austrian-Hungarian Empire, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, UK, Spain, Italy, USA...)
