Presented is a 100-card complete set of T68 Royal Bengals "Heroes of History/Men of History" non-sports cards issued between 1911 and 1912. These colorful cards illustrate daring men (and women!) of the ages. The inclusion of thumbnail biographies on each reverse was still something of a novelty at that time, though it undoubtedly added greatly to the set's initial appeal, just as it does for today's hobbyist. Key subjects in this array include: Alexander the Great, Napoleon Bonaparte, Julius Caesar, David Crockett, Geronimo, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, William Shakespeare and Sitting Bull. Grades 29% VG to VG/EX (mostly VG), 28% GD to GD/VG, 43% PR to FR (including some trimmed; approximately 20% have back issues). Difficult to find in complete set form. According to our research, only a handful of 100-card complete sets of this issue have publically sold at auction in the past decade!
