The 1888 “Celebrated American Indian Chiefs (N2)” tobacco card collection produced by Allen and Ginter, is another beautiful representation of the lithographic artwork of that time. Chiefs from many indigenous North American tribes are featured in this set. All proceeds from the sale of this digital enhancement will be donated to The Native American Rights Fund. https://www.narf.org/ Allen & Ginter Cigarettes issued its 50 card American Indian Chiefs set in 1888. Each card measures 1 1/2” x 2 3/4” featuring a full color lithographic image of a Native American leader. The images are produced from portraits from the Department of the Interior in Washington. Photographs of these American Indian chiefs were taken and used to create the lithographic images [for the cards]. There is some debate as to whom the artwork and design should be attributed to. Some folks believe that it was Charles Marion Russell, who was one of the best-known artists of cowboys and Indians at that time.
