Presented is a complete set of N13 Allen & Ginter "Game Birds," composed of fifty cards. Issued with Allen & Ginter's Cigarettes, each card features a beautifully rendered multicolor illustration of a bird in action. This is an attractive medium-to lower-grade set, with bright colors and crisp images. Approximately one-third of the set displays technical flaws on the reverse, common to nineteenth-century cards, including spots of paper loss, album residue, and writing, which would cause them to grade modestly by professional grading standards. Condition is 32% Ex, 16% Vg-Ex, 26% Vg, 14% Gd, and 12% lesser. This is a bright and overall very clean complete set of this popular nineteenth-century nonsport issue. Total: 50 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
