The 1886 Lone Jack Cigarette Cards
The 1886 Lone Jack Cigarette card set is, according to David Rudd Cycleback, among the rarest of 19th century tobacco inserts. Issued by the Lone Jack Cigarette Co. of Lynchburg, Virginia, the set contains thirteen players from the Browns. The pictures used for the cards were taken from the Old Judge set.
The images above are of the Bob Caruthers, Tip O'Neill, and Curt Welch cards.
