W. Duke, Sons & Co. (U.S.A.) - (N88) The Terrors of America and their Doings (1888)


1888
(N88) The Terrors of America and their Doings
W. Duke, Sons & Co.
USA
50 cards (1 Football)

I've been sent scans of this very rare football card issued in the United States in 1888, this is the small version - 2¾" x 1½".
 One of the good thing about early North American card sets, is that they usually printed the checklist on the back of the cards. The cards are listed in alphabetical order rather than in the order they appear on the cards.

"Ain’t she a beauty"
"Clean it for a quarter"
"Extra! Extra!!’
"Get off there"
"Hit a fellar yer size"
"I didn’t steal no apples"
"Knuckle down!"
"Let her go slow"
"Line up back there"
"Please come home"
"Pot a Boilin"
"Watch me hit him"
"What a find"
"Wid me one hand"
