Truly a collection unto itself, this incredible collection includes samples and groups from some of the early twentieth-century's most popular nonsport-card sets. These cards were part of a very substantial, totally untouched collection of 1910-era tobacco cards consigned to this auction (all cards from this collection appear in several lots on the Internet Only section).
