The back of each card features a checklist of the set. This is an extremely attractive near-complete set with outstanding eye-appeal. Duke's “Yacht Colors of the World” set has always been highly appreciated by nineteenth-century nonsport tobacco-card collectors for its beauty and subject matter. Total: 47 cards. Reserve $200.
