1888 Allen & Ginter Race Horses (N52) Set Overview
This incredibly rare set was issued by Allen & Ginter. Unlike other Allen & Ginter sets issued around the same era, these cards are so rare that even a fully confirmed checklist is not known.
Even finding images of the cards is a difficult task as they rarely appear for sale. Pictures of three of the cards are here but the cards are rarely seen in person.
The cards were issued by Allen & Ginter for their Virginia Brights Cigarettes brand. Cards have a sepia tone with images of popular race horses of the era. The name of the horse joins the Allen & Ginter and Virginia Brights names on the front while backs are blank.
