N266 Red Cross Long Cut Tobacco – Boxing Positions and Boxers

25 card set of pairs of boxers and wrestlers issued by Lorillard with an 1893 copyright. Unlike any other set of its era with the dual boxers and wrestlers, its design was copied later by other producers. Great lithography combined with terrific details on the back (one fight was for ‘106 rounds ending in a draw’). The prices on these cards are generally around $100-250, depending on condition, and they’ve swung back up in 2018.
