Kudos to the determined and discerning collector that got this far, with this 1893 N135 Duke "Talk of the Diamond" partial set of (11/25). The real challenge was finding such high quality examples, as typically these cards are seen in the lowest grades. This group of  somewhat scarce baseball art tobacco cards will have everyone talking about their average (VG to VG-EX+) condition quality. With deference to (3) with very small notations written on the reverse, this partial set boasts solid examples with distinct images. Decorated with elaborate satirical scenes that were likely considered humorous at time of issue, these cards now project as politically incorrect and in some cases racially insensitive. Politics aside, there's no doubting the fantastic quality and production values evident in this late Victorian Era series.
