Here's a sampling of 'cigarette cards,' enclosed as premiums in packaged cigarettes, most likely from the 1930s, which feature agricultural themes. Each card has a full paragraph of description on its reverse, and most were part of a series, which encouraged consumers to keep buying more cigarettes until they'd collected all the cards in a particular series or set.
