partGOLD1 We do also have non-football cigarette & trade cards but most have not made it to the scanner/editor yet. Here's an example, near-mint (it's not often you can grade a cigarette card from 1905 as near-mint but this one is) of an un-catalogued Cifuentes Pego Partagas card.

Its type has various mentions in World Indices I-V but most are still un-recorded. We have about 10 of this golden type, and various others mostly ranging from nr-mint or excellent down to a few trimmed odds.

Offers please. OTHERS from this series will be pictured soon. Contact us if you are interested in buying these rarities.
