1930 Millhoff / De Reszke In the Public Eye Overview

1930 Milhoff In the Public Eye Golf1930 Milhoff In the Public Eye Boxing1930 Milhoff In the Public Eye TennisThis set included 36 cards of celebrities who were in the public eye. Cards were produced by J. Millhoff & Co. Ltd., and English tobacco company. They were designed for their De Reszke cigarette brand.

The front of the cards featured sepia pictures of celebrities while backs had a biography of him/her. The cards had the same look as the 1928 Millhoff / De Reszke Famous Golfers set produced two years earlier.

Collectors should note that this is different from the 1935 Godfrey Phillips In the Public Eye set. That was a similar multi-sport issue but had a different layout and used color images.

Some of the subjects featured were actors, actresses, or other non-sports celebrities. However, there are a good number of athletes here, including from the world of tennis, golf, boxing, and soccer, among other sports.

Leading the way are golfer James Braid, tennis star Betty Nuthall, and boxer Phil Scott. Popular non-sports cards include actor Charlie Chaplin and would be Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
