    1910 T38 Hassan Cigarettes "Aviators" Complete Set (25). Issued less than a decade after the Wright brothers made their famous flight, the United Cigar Store Co. produced "The Aviators" in 1911. The first cards produced have white backs with black print and although these men were considered the "rock stars" of the era, identification and information wasn't precise as there are numerous errors. What to do? Just add a thick layer of metallic gold ink and print over the gold. This set is an exclusive "gold back" format assembly. Includes: Baldwin, Bleriot (SGC 70 EX+ 5.5), Brookins, Curtiss, De Lesseps, Santos-Dumont, Farman (SGC 50 VG/EX 4), Grahame-White, Hamilton, Harmon (SGC 50 VG/EX 4), Hilliard (SGC 60 EX 5), Johnstone (SGC 60 EX 5), Lambert, Latham (PSA EX-MT 6), Le Blanc (PSA EX 5), Olieslagers (SGC 60 EX 5), Paulhan, Post, Roe (PSA EX-MT 6), Sommer, Voisin, Weyman, Willard (PSA EX 5), W. Wright (VG) and Wright Brothers (VG/EX). Grades 28% EX to EX/MT, 52% VG to VG/EX, 20% lesser.
