Monte Cudine
All, a few months ago I mentioned that I was going to try and get SGC to grade the Monte Cudine cards, but I have been unable to do so. Does anyone know where I can find a checklist and some third party information that show them that these are indeed legit. I was a bit surprised not to find them in the book "Dificil eran las de antes" from Argentina. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Al, weren't these issued in poster form and then cut out? Unless I am thinking of a completely different set. They are small and round, right? Anyway, that's the only information I can recall about them. I'm probably thinking of a different set, and if so, carry on, lol. Alan

Thats a tough set to find information about. There are many variations too, to make that even more complicated.

This is the set that I am referring to....

Hi Al,

I was looking at the company and noticed that it is located in Uruguay. Maybe there is more info on these in some periodical from there rather than Argentina. I haven't seen much when researching them over the years. I have seen posters of Monte Cudine with discs but they do not have the same markings as the cut out discs, so I am not sure whether they are all from the same media. Also, the stamps on back make me think that they were issued from the company, but who knows? I will keep looking and let you know if I see anything.

Monte Cudine's
Not sure if this will help your cause or not but I have bought several of these from a friend in Argentina. Monte Cudine is an alcoholic drink that started in the 30's and was distributed for decades in Argentina (I cant speak to Uruguay). From what i understand, these "pogs" were issued under the lids of the bottles in order to increase sales just kind of as a gimmick. Also, as Alan mentioned earlier (Hi Alan) I have never heard of these being distributed in poster form and cut out (These are made of fairly heavy cardboard and there are no punch marks to be found). Unfortunately, I can't expound much more than that but I do have an advertisement that was sent to me so once i locate it I will scan it in here.

Very cool information, thanks Noel!

Thanks Noel...
This should be helpful. I doubt that it will go all the way for SGC, but I will try and continue to do some research in both Argentina and Uruguay!

SGC and Monte Cudine
No problem Al and best of luck to you--tell SGC to get their best grader on it. And if it smells like a duck, quacks like a duck and walks like a duck then perhaps it may very well be one! And finally, if they cannot authenticate and validate then who would they recommend?
