1927 Player’s Gilbert and Sullivan trading cards are the second series of Gilbert and Sullivan cards distributed in John Player & Sons tobacco products. Series 1 was released in 1925 and was also a 50 card set.

Just like the 1925 series, these cards feature characters in costumes used by the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company which produced Gilbert and Sullivan operas in England for over 100 years.

The two sets have some crossover, for example both sets begin with a card of Casilda from The Gondoliers, but characters are featured in different costumes when they appear in both sets. Thanks to a few shows being added to this list which were omitted from Series 1, the only G&S major works which are not featured on cards are Thespis, The Martyr of Antioch, Utopia Limited, and The Grade Duke.
