Although cigarette cards were first issued over 100 years ago, trade cards have a history stretching back to the 17th century. Cards are still being produced today-and can be obtained when purchasing certain brands of chocolate, soft drinks, cigars, and more.
This informative and lavishly illustrated book traces the history of cards, reviews the many beautiful and sometimes bizzare series that have been issued, comments on current developments affecting the hobby and contains valuable advice and information for both the experienced and novice collector.
