1889 N225 Kinney Bros. "National Dances" Complete Set (50)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $529

Complete set of fifty 1889 N225 Kinney Bros. "National Dances" cards. A very attractive set of these scarce and colorful tobacco cards, bright and clean, with a uniform overall Excellent appearance. Technically the condition ranges from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (averaging Ex), with the exception of just several cards slightly lesser. Issued with Kinney's tobacco, each card features a beautifully rendered multicolor illustration of a dancing male or female in native costume from one of the different countries represented. The dances and countries are checklisted on the back of the cards. Cards issued by Kinney Bros. tend to be far rarer than those issued by some of the larger tobacco companies of the era such as Allen & Ginter. This is an extremely attractive, culturally very interesting and significant set with outstanding eye-appeal. Rarely offered as a complete set. Total 50 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $529
