Vintage Cigarette Cards

I love the NY Public Library's Digital Collection. I have a habit of browsing the catalog to see what interesting piece of vintage ephemera I come across. While recently browsing, I discovered cigarette cards, collectible trading cards used as a marketing ploy to sell cigarettes. While there are many charming cigarette cards, there seem to be many weirder ones. Some are even down right strange and entertaining. I'm a bit embarrassed to say that I spent a good chunk of time looking at odd cigarette cards and picking on the ones below. If you'd like to browse the collection yourself, you can do so HERE. Enjoy!
