1888 G and B Chewing Gum Co E223 - Chicago White Stockings

These cards measure approximately 1" by 2 1/8" and primarily feature players from the National League. This is one of the few nineteenth century issues which are not tobacco related. The set was issued by the G and B Chewing Gum Co and is the first set released by a gum or candy company.
