Wild Animal Cigarette Cards - Wild And Free

The beginning of the 20th century was an exciting time in the history of mankind. Many new inventions and discoveries were coming into fruition and some parts of the planet still remained unexplored. Books and periodicals of the time cultivated a desire for adventure. To the average person, foreign countries were probably like other planets and wild animals resembled alien creatures. It is hardly surprising that sets of cigarette cards depicting wild animals were extremely popular and fuelled the young adventurer's imagination. 

  It would be impractical to list every wild animal card set issued and so I've listed small selection of the more unusual and rare card sets that I've come across in my six years of dealing on eBay. I've provided scans of a sample card from each set and tried to include all card titles.
