Cricket Cigarette Cards

Cricket is a quintessential British sport, which is popular in the present and former British Commonwealth countries. Tobacco manufacturers were quick to take advantage of its popularity and issued many sets of cigarette cards on British and Australian cricketers from the late 19th century through to the 1930s. Don Bradman, regarded by many as the greatest batsman of all time, is a particular favourite amongst cigarette card collectors.

I've listed below a small selection of the more rare and unusual cricket cigarette card sets that I've come across in my six years of trading 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.
