Dog Breeds On Vintage Cigarette Cards (Collectables)

I've been collecting and selling trade cards, cigarette cards and related collectables for over twenty years. Before you read this guide please subscribe to my card collecting newsletters for updates on rare cards and tips on buying by Clicking Here, thank you.

Dogs have been man's best friend for many years, perhaps 17000 or more and this enduring relationship was reflected on cigarette card issues from the late 19th century through to the start of WWII. It would be impractical to list every dog cigarette card set issued and so I've made a small selection from the more rare and unusual card sets that I've come across in my six years of trading on eBay. I've provided colour scans of a sample card from each set and tried to list all the dog breed names.
