About Collectible Cards

In the 1870s and 1880s, cigarette companies began issuing series of collectible cards, one card with each packet of their brand. Each series could run to 25, 50 or even 100 cards (occasionally many more), and depicted various subjects, though primarily famous people (actresses, sportsmen and leaders), places and animals. Some brands, notably in the U.K., ran a number of series depicting military uniforms, insignia and training.
