    1911 T38 Union Cigar "The Aviators" Gold Backs SGC Complete Set (25). One of the more obscure and highly desirable sets is the T38 "The Aviators" series showcasing the men who fueled the public's fascination with flight. Every card is the second version easily identified by the gold metallic ink backs. This set was produced for the United Cigar Store Co. in 1911.
