For the 19th Century card collector, you never forget your first card and that first card is more than likely an Allen & Ginter's product. The N28 "World's Champion" cards are a hobby classic and a nostalgic favorite for many. Offered is a great selection of companion pieces from that same 1880's - 1890's era. The collection includes five metal containers for their Genuine Louisiana Perique, The Richmond Mixture for Smoking, Imperial Smoking Mixture Cube Cut and The Richmond Straight Cut brands, six The Richmond Straight Cut and various Virginia Brights 10-Count packs and three boxes of Richmond Straight Cut . A few packs are as nice as they were over 100 years ago, metal containers are very-good. Please see our web site for a detailed list of the contents of this collection.
