    Description

    Extremely Rare 1880's "Lone Jack" Cigarettes Slide Tray & Shell Style Pack. The Lone Jack Cigarette Company was based in Lynchburg, Virginia. The revered name can be found on cards depicting actresses, presidents, world personalities, Inventors and an extremely rare set of thirteen baseball cards in 1887 honoring the World Champion St. Louis Browns. Offered is an 1880's "Lone Jack" Cigarettes slide tray & shell style pack that is even more rare than the cards that were inserted inside. There is some overall soiling and the bottom panel of the inner tray is missing. Noted expert in this field Jon Canfield says, "Since 1997, I have only been able to document seven examples (in three different styles)." He goes on to say this same style of pack has been found with an original non-baseball card inside so it is possible this type of pack help circulated the N370 Baseball player cards. A must have pack for the 19th Century specialist.
