Did you know cigarette manufacturers used to issue trading cards to stiffen packs and advertise their brands? Above is Gallaher’s Cigarettes’ “How to” collection and below is Ogden’s Cigarettes’ take on my favorite child star! I love this vintage marketing. Seems like a fun thing to keep an eye out for when ambling about in antique stores and flea malls.
