Circa 1888 N128 Duke "Snapshots from Puck" Complete Set (25)
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $420
Complete set of twenty-five N128 Duke "Snapshots from Puck" cards. Presented is a very attractive complete set of these rare, colorful, and extremely striking nineteenth-century tobacco cards, with twenty-one cards ranging in grade from Vg to Ex (averaging Vg-Ex) and four cards grading Fr to Gd due to paper loss or writing on the reverse. Duke Tobacco cards in general are far rarer than cards issued by many other tobacco companies such as Allen & Ginter. Issued with Duke’s Honest Long Cut tobacco, each card features a colorful, graphically detailed lithographic image of a cartoon taken from the 1880s humor magazine Puck. Duke's “Snapshots from Puck” is rarely offered as a complete set. Total: 25 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $420
