Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $420

Near-complete set of 1888 N74 Duke "Fishers and Fish" consisting of forty-eight different cards out of fifty in a complete set. Extremely attractive near-complete set of these very colorful and unusual tobacco cards, with an overall Excellent appearance. Tremendous artwork on this amusing nineteenth-century tobacco-card issue. The condition of the near-complete set is 65% Vg-Ex to Ex and 35% technically lesser due to small flaws on the reverse. Issued with Duke's Cigarettes. In a complete set, 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 near-complete set. Total: 48 cards.  Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $420
