Circa 1889 N265 Lorillard "Actresses in Opera Roles" Complete Set (25)

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $355.50

Complete 25-card set of N265 Lorillard "Actresses in Opera Roles." Issued with Sensation Cut Plug, these colorful cards picture women set against an illustrated background acting in a variety of different operas. Ten cards grade Vg to Vg-Ex, eight cards grade Good including six with erased writing on reverse, six cards grade Fair (with much stronger appearance) due to small pencil markings on reverse, and one card grades Poor. Several of the cards with writing present better than their technically accurate grades. The back of each card features instructions on how to properly use the company's tobacco, along with an advertisement for the Sensation Cut Plug brand and the Lorillard Company. This set is rarely offered complete and would make a significant addition to any advanced nineteenth-century nonsport card collection. Total: 25 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $355.50
