The Matchless, Much Covered Leonard Cohen On 1972 Matchbox Cover

matchoxLeonard Cohen is Card E 116 in the Vlinder Match Cover Film, TV, and Music Stars series. Manufactured in The Netherlands from the late 1950s through the mid-1970s, over 800 of these paper thin 1 3/8? x 2? cards were employed as labels on match boxes (these cards are often found in less than perfect condition because they are easily damaged in the process of removing them from the match box). Other music stars on Vlinder match covers include Elvis Presley in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, the Beatles from the 1960s to the early days after their breakup, Roy Orbison, Frankie Avalon, Dusty Springfield, Nancy Sinatra, Neil Diamond, The Supremes, Barbra Streisand, Sonny and Cher, Ray Stevens, Chubby Checker, Elton John, Cat Stevens, Donna Summer, Tom Jones, Black Sabbath, The Who, Mick Jagger, and other members of the Rolling Stones.
