Description:The marketing phenomenon of tobacco cards that put Duke cigarettes on the map was the classic 1888-89 series of 50 Civil War Generals and Admirals. You had to smoke a lot to get them all and the #1 "card" (actually booklet) then and now was Robert E Lee.

This one has come apart and lost the staple in the spine. There is another staple hole from a long since removed one through the front and back. This is an expensive card to get and $100 is actually a good deal. Back when you could get them on eBay (banned now because of the Confederate flag) the Lee card generally went for over $200 each.
