This listing is for a scarce Cuban Cigarette Card of Wizard of Oz Fame Hollywood Legend Frank Morgan from the series titled Cigarros Aquilitas “Estrellas Del Cine” (Cinema Stars).
Issued in 1935 this vintage series was made up of 360 photo quality Cigarette cards that were published in havana Cuba. The cards from this series measure in size:1 7/8″ x 2 5/16″
These high quality photographic photo cards were sometimes well developed, other times they were faded as if they were not fully developed. As such finding cards with well defined photos is highly sought after.
The distributer Cigarros Aquilitas isssued an album to house the collection back then. The album lists a 1935 date on the cover. The first 140 cards show the individual stars, the following 100 cards show pairs of stars in movie scenes, and the last 120 cards show actual scenes from the movies.
The photo on this card shows a young Frank Morgan with the movie house association of Warner on the front. Rare seldom card oferred in this state of unglued condition (see scans).
