Vintage Motor Car Cigarette Cards

Cigarette cards provide a beautifully illustrated record of perhaps the most significant period in the history of mankind, 1870s-1930s. The motor car was one of the many revolutionary innovations to emerge during this stretch. Over the last hundred years, the motor car has gone from being owned by the privileged few to becoming a modern day necessity. Many cigarette card sets were issued on motor cars, from the time when they were just a novelty through to the rapid decline of the traditional horse drawn coach. Ironically, the first motor cars were seen as ecologically friendly, since it meant less horse manure in the streets. It would be impractical to list every classic motor car card set issued and so I've made a small selection from the more unusual and rare motor car 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 I've tried to list as many card titles as possible.
