1935 Lambert & Butler Airmen and Airwomen Set Overview
This set of tobacco cards featured British aviators. The set is one of many sports issues printed for Lambert and Butler tobacco products.
In all, there are a total of 25 cards in the set. Each card features a black and white sketch of a pilot. The fronts look very basic. They include only a black and white sketch of an aviator with the Lambert & Butler Cigarettes name at the top.
The backs are much closer to standard international issues from the UK with a writeup about the subject on the front, a card number, and the name of the set, along with a short advertisement for Lambert & Butler at the bottom while indicating they were issued by the parent firm, Imperial Tobacco Co. of Great Britain & Ireland, Ltd.
Because the set features only British aviators, many significant names in the sport are missing from it.
Many Lambert & Butler issues are not as common as Wills or Churchman issues, other tobacco brands in the UK. That is also the case with this set. Still, prices are not outrageous for it with complete sets selling for about $30-$40.
