Through the ages, tobacco and America's Pastime have been linked, and this amazing lot is a throwback to the earliest stages of that connection. All of these vintage packages were associated with baseball cards at one time or another, and some may have contained cards, while others may have held coupons redeemable for cards; some originate from the era that the cards were issued and some from later. Offered here: a very rare Sporting Life Cigarettes empty box (missing sides of lid), Fatima Cigarettes soft pack is torn but still has cigarettes inside, Piedmont Cigarettes soft pack is unopened, Turkey Red Cigarettes empty box, Hassan box still has cigarettes inside, Turkish Trophies Cigarettes empty box, Recruit Little Cigars empty box, Mono box is opened but still has cigarettes inside, Mecca Cigarettes soft pack is unopened, Dogs Head Cigarettes empty box, Sweet Caporal empty box, Piedmont Cigarettes empty box, Honest Long Cut soft pack is unopened. Overall condition is Very Good, of course these items are becoming ever more difficult to find in any condition.
