1909-1913 T81 Recruit Little Cigars "Military Series" Complete Set (50)
Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $178
Presented is a complete set of T81 "Military Series" comprised of fifty cards. Issued with Recruit Little Cigars tobacco brands between 1909 and 1913, each card features a beautifully rendered multicolor illustration of military men from around the world. The cards can be found with or without the images die-cut so that the backgrounds can be folded back to allow the military men to stand; this set features thirty-six die-cut. This set presents with vibrant, bold colors but (as is always the case with this issue due to their design) would grade very modestly due to creasing and wear surrounding the die-cuts or trimming/factory miscuts on several cards. This is a popular 1910-era nonsport issue with strong colors and presentation throughout. Total: 50 cards. Reserve $100. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $178
