American Indian Chiefs
   Colonial Baking Co. - 1952

Notes: Fronts feature color artwork and descriptive text; backs have advertising 
text. Many images for the 3-3/4" x 4" cards were from an early Allen & Ginter 
tobacco series.

This series has red borders with the card number in the lower left, and a banner 
"American Indian Chiefs" but marking "American Indian Series No. xx". The design 
was shared with the Red Man series, with different numbering and some changes. 
Another series with uncertain provenance had an accompanying collector album, 
blue borders, and changes from both of the other series. American Card Catalog 
reference is D6. Scans are posted at the Vintage Non-Sports Cards gallery.
