Ogden’s Cigarettes 1901 Sandow Card

Posted on Monday, September 1st, 2014 by John Wood

Early cigarette manufacturers included a rigid piece of card stock in with their packs to keep the cigarettes from getting bent. They were just blank at first, but eventually, the American tobacco company Allen and Ginter started printing pictures on them in 1875. Other companies soon followed suit and “trading cards” were born. These cards featured many different subjects but sporting stars were a popular one. Above, you’ll see Eugen Sandow from Ogden’s Cigarettes 1901 set.
