I look forward to hearing from you shortly.

Gallaher Woodland Trees Series [1912] tree cigarette cards set Gallaher Woodland Trees Series [1912] 100 cards
Considered a classic of its type, 100 cards in total and certainly colourful. Personally I find the cards often rather overcrowded but it is exhaustive both in content and price it has to be said.

Wills Flower Culture in Pots flowers cigarette cards set Wills Flower Culture in Pots [1925] 50 cards
This is more like it. Flower Culture in Pots. Dramatic black backdrops and the eponoymous pot taking a minor role in proceedings. Well done Wills and a deserved entrant on the classic sets page and given it is over 20 times cheaper than the Gallaher set above a real case of having you cake, eating it and hardly having to pay for it.

Gallaher Wild Flowers flowers cigarette card set Gallaher Wild Flowers [1939] 48 cards
Wills does not get it all its own way and Gallaher produced this set of cards along with a set of Garden Flowers the previous year. An interesting foreground and background effect on this set and for those that like to collect the unusual I cannot think of another set of cigarette cards with this effect on it. Of course I am always ready to be proved wrong by people that know different. I actually prefer the wild flower idea to the cultivated one (probably because it suggests I do not need to go out into the garden and make it grow).

Wills Alpine Flowers flowers cigarette cards set Wills Alpine Flowers [1913] 50 cards
An good early example of a Wills flower set (someone at Wills was a gardner I assume). Good quality board my only complaint is the stark white background which can be difficult to fine in higher grades 80 years later. Still I can and I do, if it was easy so would everyone else and I would not be one of the best in the business. So well done Wills.

Wills Garden Flowers by Sudell flowers tobacco cards set Wills Garden Flowers by Sudell [1939] 50 cards
From one of the earliest examples to one of the last examples. Issued in 1939. The card itself might not be as thick, the text design on the reverse might have been modernised but there is no mistaking it is still a quality product. It might only be 60 years old so it is good to see Wills stuck to its roots right to the end.

Wills Roses flowers tobacco cards set Wills Roses 2nd Series (51-100) 1913 50 cards
This is getting a bit like a Wills appreciation page. Still why not, they deserve it for all the efforts they made on the flower front (I am not even mentioning the Garden Hints and related series they did). Indeed this card is only here to represent three series they produced of Roses. Okay you have to be a real Rose fiend to want all three sets (or a really determined cigarette card collector) but every collector should treat themselves to one of these sets. That isn't a salesman talking that's a collector suggesting.

Players Useful Plants & Fruits flowers tobacco cards set Players Useful Plants & Fruits [1902] 50 cards
Some sources give this as a 1904 issue, either way, early. It does not quite fit in with the rest of this page as it has a more commercial angle to it but really it is just to good to leave out of this line-up. Also it can represent Players very well in this line up. Good quality card, highly detailed illustration and that nice use of colour so often in eveidence with the earlier issues. Not easy to get hold of I don't see any reason why it will become more easy in future so now might just be the time to get the set if you want to, there is only one direction the price of this set is likely to go.

Wills, Flowering Trees and Shrubs flowers and trees tobacco cards set Wills, Flowering Trees and Shrubs [1924] 50 cards
This set is compartable in detail to the Gallaher, Woodland Trees series but gives more space to the foliage rather than the tree. Also only 50 cards and less than half the price.

Wills, Wild Flowers cigarette cards set Wills, Wild Flowers [1923] 50 cards
I'm not going to apologise for yet another series of Wills. As ever detail, detail, detail is what a Wills set is all about. Wild Flowers could be another word for weeds but look at it this way, if they are on someone else's land you don't have to worry about them.

Wills, Old English Garden Flowers cigarette cards set Wills, Old English Garden Flowers [1910] 50 cards
If they are called Old English in 1910 you can assume they are even older by the end of the 20th century. Lovely set of cards if only because it represents the sort of flowers your Great-Grandparents were trying to grow before the First World War. A different world where gardens were English and you pottered about it them (or your gardener did)

G.Phillips, Annuals flowers tobacco cards set G.Phillips, Annuals [1939] 50 cards
Just to stop the Wills 'love-in' Godfrey Phillips alos got in touch with its feminine side to produce a flower series. Doesn't cost as much as many on this page and that is never a bad thing as there is no real loss in quality as a result.

Gallaher, Garden Flowers cigarette cards set Gallaher, Garden Flowers [1938] 48 cards
With this set Gallaher produced a more conventional format series in terms of artistic style. It is still obviously a Gallaher set mind.

Wills Trees cigarette cards set Wills Trees [1937] L40 cards
As if I cannot find enough Wills cards about flowers I now show you the most wonderful of Trees sets. Okay only 40 cards but they are large. Forget that Gallaher set I showed you at the beginning (I'll let you into a secret it is over $700US, imagine if they had done it as a set of 100 large cards) this is the tree set for me, I'd choose it over the Gallaher set everyday of the week but that's a personal opinion the Gallaher set has its fans (usually people trying to sell it actually).
