Cycling is certainly a bit of a fringe sport to most card collectors. However, these types of cards from the pre-war era do have a bit of a market.

In particular, cards of cycling greats, such as Major Taylor, are valuable. Additionally, early cards of penny-farthing cycling (bicycles with one large wheel and a smaller one behind) are sought after, too.

Below are known sets that feature Taylor and other cyclists, as well as other sets that are exclusively devoted to cycling.
