Collection Overview

Collection consists of thousands of cigarette, tobacco, tea, and foodstuffs trading cards, arranged by topic or set; hundreds of silks, blankets, and pins also distributed as collectibles through packages of tobacco; and about fifty original packages and tins of tobacco products, dating from the late nineteenth to late twentieth century. Mitchell created and accumulated substantial documentation of the items in this collection; that description has been included when available.

The largest series is the Trading Cards, which largely date from the twentieth century and include both American and international sets. This series also contains a sampling of nineteenth century cards from companies such as Allen and Ginter; W. Duke, Sons and Co.; Kinney Bros.; the American Tobacco Co.; Gail and Ax; P. Lorillard Co.; and others. There is typically one card from a series and they have not been sorted or further described.

The rest of the Trading Card series is arranged by card set, including sets from tobacco companies (including Will's Cigarettes, Ardath, Barratt and Co.; Gallaher Ltd.; Sarony and Co.; John Player and Sons; Turkish Tropies; Hassan; Mills Filtertips; Godfrey Phillips; Stroller's Cigarettes; Carreras; and others), tobacco monopolies (like the Imperial Tobacco Co. (of Great Britain and Ireland) Ltd.; American Tobacco Co.; and others), and other trading card sets from other brands and products (such as Brooke Bond Tea; Hoadley's Chocolates; Stamina Clothing; Shell Corp.; Nabisco; Sanitarium Foods; and Arm and Hammer). These came pre-sorted by Mitchell into various topical categories, which have been retained.

The second series encompasses the other formats of tobacco collectibles acquired by Mitchell, and include silks, blankets/flannels, and pins. These are arranged according to their S and B numbers, as initially cataloged by Jefferson Burdick.

The third series contains original Tobacco Tins and Packages, with assorted tobacco products including cigarettes, cigars, plug tobacco, and other related products from various brands and companies. These date from both the nineteenth and twentieth century.

Contents of the Collection

1. Trading Cards, 1880-1986

The Trading Cards series contains both cigarette and non-cigarette collectible cards acquired and assembled by Terence Mitchell. The earliest cards are from the late nineteenth century; this portion of the series includes assorted miscellaneous cards from various sets and sources. They have not been itemized and are foldered together in the Nineteenth Century Cards subseries. That subseries also contains some examples of cigarette company coupons and prize tickets. The bulk of the series dates from the twentieth century, and includes Mitchell's collectible cards from both the tobacco industry and other products such as tea, chocolate, and oil. Mitchell pursued the entire set when available, and then donated them to Rubenstein pre-sorted into various categories he established. There are no cards from Topic 11: Circus and no cards from Topic 29: Police, so these numbers have been skipped in the ensuing description.

2. Fabric Collectibles and Pins, 1890s-1930s

This series includes a range of formats also included in tobacco cartons or packaging: blankets (also called flannels); silks; leathers; and pins. Mitchell's book, American Tobacco Cards (published 1999) explains that "silks refers to any issue of cloth material distributed as inserts in tobacco packages or as premiums in exchange for coupons." Silks were intended for sewing together as pillow topis or other display items. Blankets were typically made of flannel but could also be woven fabric. Mitchell writes that most fabric inserts were issued between 1908 and 1915.

Historical Note

Terence Mitchell is a card collector and co-author of American Tobacco Cards: Price Guide and Checklist, published by Tuff Stuff Publications, 1999.

The cards in this collection include both nineteenth and twentieth century card sets, many of which were classified as N (for Nineteenth Century) or T (for Twentieth Century) cards by Jefferson Burdick in his foundational work on card collecting, American Card Catalog (published 1951). There are hundreds of different N card series from numerous tobacco companies; only a small selection of examples are included in this collection. The T card series includes Premium Cards (T1-T16); Insert Cards (T25-T139); and Carton Panels (T175-T177). T numbers have been included if provided by Mitchell.
