    Complete Set of 1898 Comic, Full-color Stereoptic Cards, 1-100 A marvelous, full, brilliant color set of real photo "Comic" stereoptic cards. Don't let this title mislead you: this gorgeous set of humorous situations covers the whole gamut and genre of American life in the late 1890s. From children playing with firecrackers; African American children in funny situations; romance; impossibly cute animal pictures; the Fourth of July; and many comical situations between adults and children, wives and lovers, etc. This is a complete one hundred card set; the back and front of each card carries individual series number and each card has its own title of the comic episode and a full description on the reverse of the card. Set is copyrighted "1898 by T. W. Ingersoll." Cards with faint, slight edge wear; overall condition is fine to very fine to near mint. Comes with the original professionally repaired black storage box, with faint gold-stamped "COMIC SERIES" across the top. It is extremely difficult to find (and let alone acquire) a complete original stereoptic card set such as this; especially a set issued in full color! Many individual cards (like this) sell for as much as $10 to $15 each -- or more. A choice and rare complete set.
