The Origin of Scrapps Tobacco Identified!
Check out our latest blog entry, where we uncover the origin of what has long been known as 1888 Scrapps Tobacco. Turns out they’re not tobacco cards at all – they’re among the hobby’s earliest gum cards, issued in 1888 by H. D. Smith & Co!
Also, visit our auction to see the two cards that helped us with this discovery – the hobby’s only known attached pairs of Scrapps baseball die-cuts.
We’re currently beginning the consignment drive for our December “Set Builder’s” Auction, and our February catalog auction. Now is the time to consign. If you have valuable material you are considering selling, early bird consignors get the best deals! Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us by phone at (973) 452-9147.
