1888 ALLEN & GINTER N28

Cigarettes Boxes & Tobacco Packs |
For Sale |
Issued in 1888 by the Allen & Ginter Company of Richmond, Virginia, this set consisted of 50 cards,
ten of which were of baseball players.
The cards were packaged inside “The Richmond Straight Cut” 10 count cigarette boxes such as the one pictured above.
This tobacco box is highly desired despite being only moderately rare. Note, however, Allen & Ginter produced the “The Richmond Straight Cut” 10 count
cigarette boxes for a number of years. Correct boxes will not contain "successor" language on the bottom front of the box.
Approximate value of an empty box would be $250.00+.
