1888 N74 Duke "Fishers and Fish” Complete Set (50)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $823

Complete set of fifty 1888 N74 Duke "Fishers and Fish" cards. Exceptionally strong set of these very colorful and unusual tobacco cards, with an overall Excellent appearance. Tremendous artwork on this amusing nineteenth-century tobacco-card issue. Technically the condition ranges from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (averaging Ex), with the exception of just several cards slightly lesser. Issued with Duke's Cigarettes. The complete set is comprised of fifty cards. Twenty-five of these cards feature women with impossibly big heads catching fish dressed in fancy attire and the other twenty-five cards present a colorful image of an identified fish. The back of each card features a checklist of the set. This is an extremely attractive and very rarely offered complete set. Total 50 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $823
