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.
