The N48 set is a rare issue featuring various women in baseball scenes and poses. Packed with 1800s tobacco products, these cards were a precursor of cards that would come a few years later and feature male players.  This set features advertising for both Dixie Cigarettes and Virginia Brights products. The ads are printed in a variety of locations, including the bottom of the card or in background signage that is in the scene. Its biggest distinction is being so difficult to keep track of with various types available.  From the Virginia Brights portion of the series, comes these two fine SGC graded examples.  Includes "Woman Ball Player" SGC 3 VG and "The Batter" SGC 3 VG.
