Complete set of a series of cards inserted by W.D. & H.O. Wills in packs of Wills’s Cigarettes, each card depicting an auction bridge hand on one side and an explanation of the hand and its interesting aspects on the other. Beginning in 1887, Wills was one of the first U.K. companies to insert advertising cards, and later general interest series of cards, in its cigarette packs, and this set dates c.1926.
The cards themselves state that they are a series of 25, and thus this is a complete set. The cards measure 80mm x 62mm. There is no box.
The cards are in very good, perhaps excellent, used condition. They have been handled, and there is edge wear, but there are no creases, tears, corner problems or other issues.
Thanks for visiting.
