Ships On Cigarette Cards

   Tobacco manufacturers issued cigarette cards on many different topics from the 1870s-1930s. Shipping was definitely a favourite and cigarette card sets were issued on every aspect of them: history, battleships, cruise liner interiors, figureheads, ship badges and famous ships such as the Bounty and Titanic.
 
  It would be impractical to list every ship 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.
